"Movember Awareness"

I am such an advocate when it comes to awareness  not just for women but men as well. October was breast cancer awareness month , and this month (November) is known to many men as "Movember"
About The Awareness: 
Movember is responsible for the growth of many men's facial hair (moustaches) in Canada and around the world. Dedicating their unshaven faces and straggly hairs the men raise vital funds and awareness prostate cancer. Men's health is often ignored, in terms of social media so for 30 days in November these dedicated men spread awareness by promoting what is often ignored.  Beginning in Melbourne Australia, "Movember" is now a global movement. In 2011 
over 854,000 individuals around the world participated in one way shape or form and were able to raise an astonishing $125.7 million Canadian Dollars. 
Anyone can sign up to participate -- to participate click here , also a general donation or a donation to a specific team that has signed up can be made! All information is listed in full detail on the Movember Canada website, which can be found here
