Movember

Movember is a campaign that raises awareness for cancers that affect men, specifically prostate cancer. November 1 kicks off the initative - men start off clean shaven and then grow out (and style!) their mustaches throughout the month. These "Mo Bros" unite as a living advertisement to men's health and the issues that aren't so widely discussed. It's a cheeky, humorous way to bring awareness to those diseases that affect so many men.
You can learn more about Movember here.

In light of Movember and the mustaches that will be popping up on faces everywhere, here are some things that us ladies can rock in support of this cause!






*The sale of these earrings actually benefit the Movember cause!


And if you really want to go all out, check out this video tutorial for a moustache manicure from CutePolish! They have so many more cute ideas too!


 
While these mustaches are cute and silly, prostate cancer is not.
Make sure the guys in your life are informed. Get more information by checking out the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

Had never heard of this before. I think its great that our men get noticed because cancer is not just a women's illness. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!

I think most dieseases are centered around women, but obviously men have their own health battles! It's a fun way to support them :)
