The Movember Foundation is the leading global organisation committed to changing the face of men’s health.

The Movember community has raised USD $559 million to date and funded over 800 programs in 21 countries.  This work is saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate and testicular cancer.

The Movember Foundation challenges men to grow moustaches during Movember (formerly known as November), to spark conversation and raise vital funds for its men’s health programs. To date, 4 million moustaches have been grown worldwide, but we won't stop growing as long as serious men’s health issues exist.


Movember challenges men to grow a moustache for the 30-days of November, thereby changing their appearance and the face of men’s health. In October Mo Bros sign up at here Movember.com, and on the 1st of Movember start their Mo growing journey with a clean shaven face.
Then for the entire hairy month, these selfless and generous men known as Mo Bros, effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of Movember. Through their growing efforts they raise awareness for the often ignored issues of men’s health, by prompting conversations wherever they go.
Another crucial part of being a Mo Bro is to raise funds for men’s health. Men donate their face, and much like taking part in a run or a walk for charity, ask their family and friends to sponsor their efforts.
Movember’s not just for men. The women of Movember are known as Mo Sistas. They play a vital role in the success of Movember by supporting and encouraging the men in their life to get involved. Mo Sistas also get involved by signing up here at Movember.com, and participate by raising funds and awareness themselves. Essentially, Mo Sistas do everything that Mo Bros do, without a Mo.
At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their Movember journey by attending one of the official Gala Partés held around the world where Mo Bros come dressed to suit their Mo. You can also organise your own event to celebrate your Movember journey, for inspiration check this out.


Movember supports world class men’s health programs that combat prostate and testicular cancer. These programs, directed by the Movember Foundation, are focused on awareness and education, living with and beyond cancer and research to achieve our vision of an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.


Since its humble beginnings in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate across 21 countries worldwide.
In addition, Movember is aware of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas supporting the campaign and men’s health causes across the globe, from Moscow to Rio de Janeiro, and everywhere in between.
Since 2003, over 4 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas around the world joined the movement, raising USD $559 million.
While significant steps have been taken toward achieving our vision of an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health, there is still much to be done.
