Movember At Twin Creek MediaIf you've been getting nervous about the number of creepy guys sporting mustaches all of a sudden... fear not! It's all for a good cause!

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men's faces, in Canada and around the world. With their "Mo's", these men raise vital funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives.[caption id="attachment_2410" align="alignleft" width="285" caption="One Movember dude (who doesn't work here!) wonders if he took it too far.... hmm... face to neck to chest to belly button. Na, not at all."][/caption]
On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words, they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men's health.
At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valour by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember, for Movember.
