Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as anxiety, prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s suicide. The goal of Movember is to “change the face of men’s health.”
You may have noticed many of the men in your life have started developing facial hair where there previously was none – for better or worse. The idea is that people who wouldn’t normally sport facial hair take the risk of doing so, with varying degrees of beardy success. Although those who are blessed enough to grow lusciously thick clumps of hair on their top lip can still take part! Though primarily aimed at men (those who take part are referred to as “Mo Bros” by the charity), there are now other ways to take part beyond growing a ‘tache, and Movember can be enjoyed by men and women alike.
As you can see, at Macadamia Care in Tzaneen, we support this movement and treated our residents to a Movember-themed lunch. Of course we decided to “grow” our very own moustaches … Can you guess who this ‘tache belongs to?
