What found it’s humble beginnings in Adelaide, Australia in 2004 has now turned into a heroic global phenomenon. Movember, an amalgamation of the words, November and Moustache (slang- mo), started out as a solidarity movement among 30 men to spread the word about ailments like prostate cancer, testicular cancer and depression among men. They started a charity, called Movember Foundation, which has since raised about USD 559 mn for over 800 charities that look into men’s health issues. Having reached South Africa and Europe, it arrived in North America. Under it’s reign, about 4 million moustaches have been pruned and nurtured.
