Today (11/1) officially marks the start of Movember, and soon you'll be mustaches sprouting up all over town. The real reason for the movement, that has become really popular over the past couple of years, is to raise awareness of prostate and testicular cancer.

Men who participate are called Mo Bros and there is even a movement for women to support the men in their lives. The women are called Mo Sistas.

The movement is designed to for men to seek out sponsorships for their fine mustachery with proceeds going to organizations like the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the LIVESTRONG Foundation, among others. At the very least, it's designed to be a conversation starter for men to be vocal about prostate and testicular cancer awareness.

Here is a Youtube video which explains all this in much more detail. you can also visit the Movember website to get involved!
