One of the most interesting months of the year is here! Along with a nip in the air, and the excitement of Thanksgiving, November also brings with it a unique movement for the welfare of men – No Shave November or Movember, which aims at spreading awareness about men’s health issues like Prostrate cancer & testicular cancer. This movement encourages men worldwide to grow their facial hair throughout the month. But, if you are sceptical about growing a stylish moustache or a rugged beard, or if your workplace decorum doesn’t allow the same, you can still support this cause in various other ways!
‘Staches on your clothes
So what if you can’t sport a handlebar ‘stache on your face? You can wear moustaches as a fun motif on your clothes and show your support towards Movember! Pair quirky mooch-printed tees with distressed denims & sneakers for a fun take on campus style. Add a touch of statement style to a cocktail party look by pairing a silk shirt & chinos with a moustache pattern tie or even a wooden moustache-shaped bow-tie. You can even go for denim jackets with moustache-embellished patches or cool slip-ons with mo’ prints to support this cause in a stylish way!
All for charity
The original Movember Fooundation is a charity that works towards the cause of men’s health around the world. The Movember movement is all about raising awareness regarding some of the biggest health issues faced by men – prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health & suicide. You can lend a helping hand by donating to the Movember Foundation or any charitable organisation working for the same cause. You can create a fundraiser of your own and raise money for the cause. Every penny going towards this good cause will mean less young men dying from any of these reasons every year.
Share and care
Spreading the word is one of the best ways of helping any good cause. So, you can actively share about the whole concept of Movember or No Shave November through social media, word-of-mouth or personal messages. Bring your friends & family together to work towards this cause and make a larger impact. Talk about Movember with people around you and try to get as many men to join in, as possible. Even the women in your life can show their support in various ways, so rope them in too.
So, this November, give facial hair a place of pride and join Movember in as many ways as you can. Spread the word, flaunt fun moustaches on your clothes & get your hair game on!
