Movember, is a movement which takes place in November where men decide to put down their razors for four weeks and raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues (specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives). Movember should not be confused with the contest “No Shave November” where men grow out beards in the hopes of seeing how hairy they can get in a month’s span.

The movement which started in Melbourne, Australia has now become a global movement. With more than 1.9 million formal campaigns taking place around the world. In 2011, close to 900,000 Mo Bros and Sis raised $126.3 million for the cause.

So on this Thanksgiving Day take the time to not just be thankful for the material things around you, but for the health of yourself and loved ones.
