The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising millions of dollars and funding over 1,000 programmes focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. The idea is for men to grow a moustache and gather donations. The UK's Monarch Airlines have joined other airlines in adding a great 'stache' to the nose of some of their jets.Watch a time-lapse video of their paint crew at work below.

Every Movember, the month formerly known as November, the group encourages men to grow and groom moustaches (no beards, no goatees). That simple change in behaviour prompts fresh conversation about the health issues that men face, and helps our community of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to generate awareness and funds for men’s health.

Additionally, this year they are introducing MOVE, a month-long commitment to get active for men’s health. This is about making 30 MOVES in 30 days - exactly how you MOVE each day is up to you. Whether it’s a workout one day, walking 30 minutes to work the next, an epic bike ride, or just a walk around the hangar no MOVE is too big or small.

For Mo Sistas, MOVE is a way to do something tangible in the name of men’s health, and for Mo Bros it’s a new challenge – grow your Mo, MOVE, or take things to the next level and do both.
