The Movember mustache has been growing slowly but surely since it began moving men and women in 2003. Not as glam as the pink ribbon and all pink byproducts, the Mo’Stache delivers a very down to earth and comical image to it’s participants and benefactors luring outsiders with Mo curiosities. Those who partake in the Movember events do so to spread knowledge about prostate cancer and raise funds for research.

The idea for Movember was sparked in 2003 over a few beers in Melbourne, Australia.
In 2004, 432 Mo Bros joined the movement , raising $55,000 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia - representing the single largest donation they had ever received.
In 2009, global participation of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas climbed to 255,755, with over one million donors raising $47 Million for Movember’s global beneficiary partners.
In 2009 the Canadian campaign was the second largest in the world behind Australia, with 35,156 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas coming together to raise $7.8 million for Prostate Cancer Canada.
