Men sporting Movember moustaches, known as Mo Bros, become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo growing efforts. The rules are simple; register online at Movember.com and start the month of Movember clean shaven, before growing a Mo.
Money raised in Australia is shared equally between programs targeting prostate cancer and male depression. Funds are committed to our men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue – the national depression initiative and the Movember Foundation. Together, the three channels work to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world class programs in the fields of research, education, support, and awareness. “

A lot of male teachers and staff at ISSH are growing their own mustache to promote and raise money for men’s health issues, including myself! I’ll keep a weekly photos update so you can see my progress. Also, parents, staff and students can vote for best mo by buying a ¥100 ticket and placing it under the most deserving staff member on the chart outside the MP room.
To show their support, in ICT classes this week, K5 and Grade 1 all added their own mustaches to their own photos. They look hilarious! Check them out:
Grade 2 is working on a comic that will be release soon. Stay tuned.
I posed the question to K5, Grade 1 and Grade 2, “Why do you think the men of ISSH are growing moustaches?” The answers were hilarious, this is what some of them had to say:
To look like a daddy?
To look like an uncle?
To be more manly? (student flexes biceps)
To keep their top lip warm?
To stay healthy?
