Ready, Set? MO!

Nov 7, 2012

November. A time to be thankful, watch football, enjoy holidays with family and for many, bundle up to fight colder weather. But for a growing number of men around the world, November means it's time to put away the razor and grow a moustache in support of men's health.

Back in October, the second installment of the AOL Idea Salon welcomed Adam Garone, co-founder and CEO of Movember, to the New York City office to share the amazing story behind the movement. Remarkably, Movember has inspired more than 1.9 million people worldwide to raise over $299 million for prostate and testicular cancer research to date. Needless to say, his speech motivated many staffers across AOL to take part in the initiative, becoming a 'Mo Bro' or 'Mo Sista' and spreading the word.

We encourage you to do the same.

Good news for those with a hairless upper lip – growing a moustache isn't the only way to show your support for Movember! You can get in on the act by offering a donation to our fuzzy friends at AOL in the US here and at The Huffington Post in the UK here. Check out the inspiration for Movember this year and head over to for more information.
