Movember; Changing the Face of Men’s Health with Promotional Products

movember

 

The hairiest month of the year is almost here! Between No Shave November and staches for Movember, chances are, you’ll soon start to see a lot of facial hair. While maybe not always the most flattering trend, rest assured that it’s all for a good cause.

Movember  (a portmanteau of the Australian-English diminutive word for moustache, “mo”, and “November”) is an annual event involving the growing of mustaches during the month of November to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues such as prostate and testicular cancers. According to the National Cancer Institute, prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related deaths in American men, and an estimated 8,430 new cases of testicular cancer will be diagnosed in 2015 alone.

Founded by the Movember Foundation, Movember’s goal is to “change the face of men’s health,” and to help men live happier, healthier, and longer lives through early detection and cancer awareness.  Since 2003, millions have joined this men’s health movement, raising $650 million and funding over 1,000 programs.

Getting involved is easy. To participate in Movember, start with a fresh face at the beginning of November, and “donate your face” until November 30th by not shaving. By doing so, your face will become a fuzzy billboard for men’s health issues! Additionally, an excellent way to show your support for the cause is through the use of mustache imprinted merchandise. We offer a wide selection of mustache themed products perfect for any Movember event. We have several mustache shaped or printed items that you can personalize, or choose to imprint your custom mustache design on any of our thousands of other promotional products! Whatever you choose, our promotional mustache merchandise will serve as excellent advertising pieces for both men’s health and for your brand!
