Show your support for prostate cancer patients with a Movember party

Date Created: 11/02/2011

Show your support for prostate cancer patients with a Movember party. While breast cancer gets a majority of the country's attention during the month of October, other cancer advocacy groups have looked to November as a time to spread awareness about another major ailment. Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men, so a worldwide movement to spread awareness has dubbed the month of November as Movember, to encourage men to grow moustaches to show their support for the men fighting this deadly disease.

The movement began in Melbourne, Australia, in 2003 and the group Movember has raised $174 million in donations to raise awareness of prostate cancer, testicular cancer and other men's health issues. The members refer to themselves as "Mo Bros" and "Mo Sistas" and spend the month of November growing out their moustaches to hopefully spark a conversation about the importance of men's health.

If you'd like to throw an engaging fall party this November, Movember could be just the ticket. Invest in a bunch of fake moustaches for your guests to wear, put up a few balloons, streamers and curling ribbon and place a small donation box near your front door so your guests can donate to your chosen cancer charity.
