As the air cools down and the days get shorter, I am reminded that it is that time of year again. No, I am not talking about Pumpkin Spice Latte season. I am talking about Movember - when the men in our lives have a 30 day pass on shaving. All for a good cause.
So what is Movember? It's a global charity focusing on men's health. Since its inception in Australia in 2003, the project has raised $710 million and helped fund more than 1,200 breakthrough men’s health projects in 21 countries. Their goals: to help men live happier, healthier, longer lives through investing in these key areas: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
So how can you get involved? We are challenging the Swell Community to get involved this month.
- Grow or Support the Growth of mustaches everywhere. The rules are below.
- Be physically active to support men's health
- Make a donation
- Host an event or join the movement here
Swell founder, Mitchell is participating. He has begun the month clean shaven, as pictured below. You will certainly want to stay tuned regarding the progress of this endeavor. As his sister, I can attest, when Mitchell grows out his ginger beard, it is a sight to behold.
