Movember memes: ready, set, grow those moustaches

1 Nov 2014

The first day of November not only marks the day Halloween candy is on sale for half price and the Day of the Dead in Mexico, but also the start of Movember.

Movember is the movement in which men around the world grow moustaches to raise funds for research into prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health issues, and in the process increase awareness of these conditions.

To date, €409m has been raised and 4m moustaches have been grown worldwide to date, but the Movember Foundation won’t stop growing as long as serious men’s health issues exist, the foundation states on its website.

So today, as men lay down their razors for a month, we present some moustache-growing inspiration and motivation in the form of Movember internet memes.
