Movember is a month-long event in which people are encouraged to grow mustaches in order to raise (grow) awareness of and funding for research related to men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health. Although Movember is based on the idea of growing a mustache during the month, it’s not limited to that and many people observe it in other ways. Movember is often associated with and sometimes confused with No-Shave November, a similar month-long event that takes place at the same time. Specifically, though, No-Shave November involves not shaving any facial hair for the month as part of a campaign to raise awareness and funds for cancer research. In the case of both Movember and No-Shave November, some people grow facial hair during the month simply for fun, without engaging in the months’ charitable aspects. Those participating in Movember often use the hashtag #Movember on social media. ⚡️When Is Movember?Movember takes place each year during November.
