Join the MOvement

vcxImage source Adweek (c/o Made Man)

Being the second full week of November, you have probably started to notice that the facial hair of your fellow male counterparts is coming in nicely. Some may have a full-grown, voluptuous ‘stache by now, and others, maybe a 5 o’clock shadow. Yes, it’s Movember, baby!

What I love even more than a man who can rock facial hair is a man who does it in the name of charity. We all know about Movember and No-Shave November, as they’ve been around for years now, but did you know that the Movember Foundation raised $21 million last year for prostate and testicular cancer?! That is mighty impressive.

What’s also impressive is the growing number of companies that have hopped on the Movember action. TOMS put out a “TOMS for Movember” collection, Adidas is encouraging men (and women) to “join the movement” with an awesome t-shirt collection, and (wisely) Just for Men and The Art of Shaving are doing their part. And probably the most famously mustached man television has ever seen, Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson of “Parks and Rec”), partnered with Made Man to endorse the cause.

So, give that guy in accounting rocking the creepstache a high-fiver. And men, “let it grow.” Because it’s only a month… (right…????)
