What’s a better way to have fun and do good than participating in Movember? Following last year’s tradition, the NIFTIT team has pledged to take part in Movember 2014 hairy challenge. So get ready world, you’re going to see some fine-looking moustaches by the end of the month.
What is Movember anyway?
Movember is a global men’s health movement. Using the moustache as a catalyst, the idea is to spark conversation and raise funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems. Since relatively humble beginnings back in 2003 in Australia, the Movember movement has grown to be a truly global one; inspiring support from over 4 million Mo Bros, Mo Sistas around the world. The Movember Foundation currently runs official campaigns in 21 countries.
Give the Moustache A Chance
Still not sure about the moustache? Here’s a couple of reasons why we think you should give it a chance:
- Moustaches keep your face warmer in the winter and aid the prevention of wind burn and chapped lips. So folks in the Northern hemisphere, winter is coming. Make sure your face is protected from the cold.
- Did you know that moustache is nature’s natural UV light shield? That’s right! There’s actually a study about this. Grow your ’stache. Say goodbye to wrinkles and skin cancer!
- Because you’ll look awesome-er with a moustache! The moustache is basically mouth brows. Can you imagine your face without eyebrows? Eyebrows, mouth brows, let them flourish. You will look 100x better than you are today!
Men of NIFTIT will start clean-shaven on November 1st. Grow and groom a nice-looking ‘stache for the next 30 days. You can also take your daily moustache progress picture with the Movember app which you can download here. For those who would like to support us in this journey, head to this group page to donate to the cause.
The point is, Movember is more than just an excuse to grow a fine piece of moustachery, it’s about creating conversations while raising funds and awareness for men’s health. It’s about having fun. So join us today – or right now, by signing up here. It’s going to be an awesome Movember!
