Continuing its tradition of finding new and innovative ways to be involved in the community, Ubar Grotto has recently adopted a new project – Movember! Just what is Movember? According to the event’s website, located at www.movember.com,
“During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.
On November 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember, for Movember.”
Many of the members of Ubar Grotto believe in this cause. With Grotto being a men’s organization, we think it only appropriate that we should support men’s health. Anyone who wants to sign up and join with Ubar in this effort is encouraged to do so. Just look up team “Ubar Grotto” when you join and you’ll be part of the team. If you’d like to help even more, you can donate funds to the team or to our individual members.
Each of our members is asked to submit a picture of themselves on November 1, 2011, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then, on November 30, we ask them to send a picture of their final mustache! All pictures will be posted here for appropriate congratulations, ridicule, and scorn.
Help change the face of men’s heath by encouraging members of Ubar Grotto to show their Mo’s!
