Every November, men worldwide stop shaving their upper lip in the name of men’s health. It all started in 2003 in Australia when 30 guys got together in an effort to bring the moustache back.
They decided to use this as a chance to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer. Having expanded to the current 21 participating countries, including UK, USA and Canada, Mo Bro’s have now raised over £443m!
Funds go towards research for prostate and testicular cancer as well as mental health. By 2030 the Mo Bros’ aim to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.
