About Movember

Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends are facing a health crisis, yet it’s rarely talked about. Men are dying too young. We can’t afford to stay silent.

WE’RE TAKING ACTION.

Movember is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health. Prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention – they’re taking them all on.

Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world, challenging the status quo, shaking up men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support men.

Movember knows what works for men, and how to find and fund the most innovative research to have both a global and local impact. They are independent of government funding, so we can challenge the status quo and invest quicker in what works. In 15 years we’ve funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.

By 2030, Movember will reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.

"I want to start off by saying how fortunate and grateful I am to still be working. On top of that, being considered essential. I've been in the grocery industry 25+ years and I have never experienced anything like this before. Being thrust into an essential role is daunting for a lot of people. Luckily, being able to leave the house daily, come into work, and have a common goal with staff and co-workers has really bonded us as a team. We are fortunate to be experiencing this together and we all have friends and family out of work, kids stuck at home, neighbours self-isolating, etc. . Knowing this might be the only time a customer is out of their house; our goal is to welcome them and reduce their stress. Ask us how we're doing, and we'll do the same. Stay physically distant but socially engaged. . If you do need to leave the house to go grocery shopping, please consider the following: plan ahead, make a list and only buy what you need for the week. Be flexible if the store is out. Reducing the time in the store reduces our exposure and affords others the time to shop. Follow the government guidelines. These are constantly being updated so respect what the store has posted. Leave morning times for the elderly and those at higher risk. Keep your distance, a real challenge down grocery aisles but try. We are constantly cleaning, only touch what you are buying. Be patient and if you are sick, STAY AT HOME." – Mo Bro Andrew Cole . . A heartfelt thank you to our grocery store workers, first responders, healthcare workers, truck drivers, bus drivers, and all of the essential workers ensuring we get the goods and services we need during this time. #thankyoufrontliners
"As a Paramedic, my coworkers and I are on the frontlines in this unprecedented time. Our mantra has quickly become: "we are at work for you, so stay home for us." That is a testament to the social distancing and self-quarantine that needs to happen to "flatten the curve," and hopefully allow us to get ahead of this. If we cannot slow the spike in cases down by heeding this advice, our health care system will become totally overwhelmed. Our health care and emergency systems run smoothly on a normal day-to-day operational basis, but I think we can all agree that these are not "normal" times. Practicing social distancing is the most important thing you can do for your community right now. That said, I want to emphasize that staying socially connected during these times is so important for our mental health. I personally have taken the opportunity to use one of the many video calling apps available to chat with my friends. The other night we had a bunch of us on the same video chat playing games and having many laughs. I can honestly say it was such a relief to connect with them in this time and was such a great time. We are all looking forward to doing it again soon. We, Paramedics, want to do the best we can to provide emergency care to our community, and we want to come home healthy and safe to our own families at the end of this. We need your help, so we can help you." – Mo Bro Jon Harper . We want to take this time to thank all of the courageous first responders, doctors, nurses, and so many others who find themselves on the frontlines of this public health crisis. We owe each and every one of you a tremendous amount of gratitude. . No matter who you are or what you do, it’s more important than ever to stay socially connected. That’s why we’re pressing pause on our In the Barber Chair series to tell you the stories from our community in the new situations they find themselves. From the frontline workers who are risking their lives to keep us safe to the ways that people are staying connected; our Mo community continues to amaze us. It’s time to rally together. We need to make the call to look out for ourselves and each other; we can get through this.
"Thirty years has passed since the last time I saw my dad but I remember it as if it was yesterday. As with most of my Saturday nights as a 13-year-old, I was sitting in my basement watching a movie. My parents had been away for a few days, so my dad came down to see me when they got home. He mentioned that he was running to the office for a bit and wanted to say goodnight. I barely took my eyes off the TV as I said “ok, see you in the morning.” I didn’t. . . My dad was the greatest! He was an avid sailor, a passionate outdoorsman, an effective/engaging professor, a jokester, and a man of many other talents. However, he also suffered, silently, for many years with depression. He lacked the tools or the strength to start that first critical conversation, tragically taking his own life at the age of 47. Obviously, there is no guarantee that any amount of conversations alone would have saved my dad. However, I firmly believe starting the first conversation could have at least started him down a better path. . . The more we talk, the more cracks we put in the wall of stigma that blocks men, boys, and everyone from talking about our mental health and physical health. I’m asking everyone check in with someone, or a few people. Maybe you’ll you have a simple conversation about sports, beer or work. Perhaps, it will be that first conversation for which someone has long been waiting. A seed gets planted, and someone struggling can finally see a way out. We may not solve many problems with a single conversation, but we surely can't find any solutions if we aren’t talking to each other." - Matt Skinner (Los Angeles) . .
