Movember is going on in full swing. Volunteers, charity firms, government and numerous individuals are campaigning hard by taking part in the course of events. The goal is common: to spread awareness among men all over the world regarding the causes, consequences and preventions of the potentially terminal prostate cancer. Since last 25 years, breast cancer has been associated with the 31 days of October. But now, men have jumped on the bandwagon by claiming and organizing November as “Movember” for their own noble cause.
Movember, the event which was imported in 2007 from Australia, solicits men for spending 30 days for growing mustaches along with voluntarily sponsoring pledge funds, charity donation and other general help for the betterment of men's health and for the cause of prostate cancer research and awarness.
Though it has not yet been progressed into an event known for managing massive funds and donations, the organizers of Movember are campaigning with electrifying intensity for making it certain that they eventually have an identical impact on prostate cancer, an ailment that bothers one in six men, as held by crusades carried out by women in November to combat the deadly breast cancer.
In 2010, in excess of 1,400 Georgian participants carried out their campaigns during Movember and eventually, they were successful in raising an effective $160,905 during the month. This year, it is being expected and hoped by the organizers of Movember that the number of participants in the state will be at least double than last year.
While expressing his opinion regarding the importance of Movember for raising awarness and funds for prostate cancer research, the US country manager for Movember, Donny Killian said: “The mustache was creating so much conversation they thought this may be an opportunity for us, in the same way women were inspired... to get men to talk about their health”.
