Movember is the month formerly known as November, where men and women across the globe join together to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues. Men grow a Mo (moustache) for 30 days to become walking, talking billboards for our men’s health causes - specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and male mental health initiatives.

Men who support Movember, called Mo Bros, start by signing up at Movember.com. Mo Bros start Movember 1st clean shaven, then grow and groom their Mo for the rest of the month, raising money along the way. Women who support Movember, called Mo Sistas, also start by signing up at Movember.com. Mo Sistas champion the Mo by supporting their Mo Bros, organizing events, leading a team.
You can donate the following ways:
  • Online using Visa, MasterCard, American Express or PayPal
  • Over the phone by calling 1-855-4GROWMO (1-855-447-6966)
  • Give cash or cheque to a Mo Bro or Mo Sista. Include your complete postal address and email address for a charitable tax receipt.
  • Send in a cheque or money order made payable to Movember, noting the name of the participant and registration number of the participant, to:

90 cents of every dollar (90.5% of funds raised) goes towards supporting our men’s health programs.

In Canada, funds are invested in programs run directly by the Movember Foundation and our men’s health partner Prostate Cancer Canada. Programs are focused on:

  • awareness and education
  • living with and beyond cancer
  • research
  • staying mentally healthy and living with and beyond mental illness.

If you’d like more information, please check out our Report Cards where you'll find listed all of our programs funded to date.

While growing a Mo is left to the guys, Mo Sistas (a woman who loves a Mo and wants to support the efforts of a Mo Bro in her life) do a lot of important work for Movember. Mo Sistas can get involved by:
  • Signing up online, recruiting a team and raising money
  • Organizing events i.e. Mo Parties
  • Making a donation to a Mo Bro
  • Supporting and showing love for the Mo
  • Attending the Gala Partés
  • Talking about and bring awareness for men’s health
You can also choose to hold your own Movember Party for your workplace, town, bar or university and we will send you a free event kit to ensure your event is a success.
