Movember - The Movement and Me

Men - a species that is loved, hated, respected, despised and everything in between. Those, for all the right reasons and the wrong. For the image they've created and the acts they've done and continue to do. But we all have our heroes in men too; in our father, brother, husband or friend. 

Men will be men; and we've got our own set of problems. There are pressures to do well in academics so that we get into a professional degree, which translates into a good a job, matrimony, so-called respect and a whole bunch of bullshit. The dramas and stress and work, managing life back home, the toll of a truck-load of budgets that are required to look after the family, children, mortgages and various expenses typically with a single income.

A recent WHO (World Health Organization) article on men's health states that "health outcomes among men and boys continue to be substantially worse than among girls and women, yet this gender-based inequality in health has received little national, regional or global acknowledgement or attention from health policy-makers or health-care providers". The article further goes on to state that on the whole, women are outliving men by an average of almost six years. 

That's for the some basic facts and stats! Flashback - in the year 2003 in Melbourne, a foundation called Movember (then November) was formed. Today, it's a leading global organisation committed to changing the face of men’s health. So far, $559 million have been raised and funded over 800 programs in 21 countries. Their work focuses on improving men's mental health and is saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate and testicular cancer.

How it works - For 30 days of November participants are challenged to grow a Moustache, starting clean-shave on 1st November and are known as Mo-Bros! That's a challenge in its own because the clean-shaven aren't used to facial hair and guys like me aren't used to being clean-shaven. Either ways, it's a simple way to grab attention and in-turn spread the word for this great cause.

What I look these days

Of course, the challenge also is to raise funds in charity. And here comes the good part - almost 87% of the funds raised were used towards men's health programs, with the remaining being apportioned towards fundraising, administration and sinking funds. 

And it doesn't end there. The lovely ladies can equally be part of this as Mo-Sistas by supporting the men in their lives and propagating the message across. 

The noble vision of 'awareness and education, living with and beyond cancer and research to achieve the vision of an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health' is something I strongly feel for and pledge my support towards.

So join me and my Mo army for this noble cause at

And the more you share, the more awareness is what spreads.
