Every November, across the world, the Movember movement gets men to grow a moustache with the aim of gathering money and raising awareness regarding men's health, and Barcelona is part of this global initiative.
Started in Australia in 2003, it has grown quickly with official campaigns in countries including New Zealand, the UK, Ireland, the US, Finland, Canada, South Africa and Spain. Those men who take part, called Mo Bros, register on movember.com and from November 1st, put down their razors and let their facial hair grow for one whole month, all in a good cause, the aim being that they get sponsorship and donations. At the end of the month, to celebrate the moustaches and the money raised, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas organise Movember parties, where not only can the hairy results be admired, but the prestigious titles of Miss Movember (no, us neither) and Man of Movember are awarded.
