While Growing a Mo is left to the guys, Mo Sistas (women who love Mo’s and want to support men's health) do a lot of important work for Movember. Mo Sistas can raise funds and awareness by signing up and:

  • Moving 60 kilometres over the month for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour
  • Hosting a Mo-ment by gathering friends and family
  • Making a donation to a Mo Bro or fellow Mo Sista
  • Encouraging men to be proactive about their health
  • Supporting and showing love for the moustache

Movember, the month formerly known as 'November', is a moustache-growing charity event that raises funds and awareness for men’s health. Movember participants, known as Mo Bros and Mo Sistas, sign up on movember.com and then choose to Grow a moustache, Move by walking or running 60 kilometres throughout the month, or Host a Mo-ment by gathering friends.

To change the face of men's health, you can either get involved, donate, or partner up with the foundation. If you choose to get involved, you can Grow a moustache, Move by running or walking 60 kilometres throughout the month, or Host a Mo-ment by gathering friends. If you'd like to partner with us, please get in touch at singapore@movember.com to speak with our team. Or, if you'd like to donate, get behind a friend by donating to their Mo Space, or make a donation directly to the Movember Foundation. To help men live happier, healthier, longer lives year-round you can also set up a recurring donation.

Yes. On Movember 1st all participants should start completely clean shaven. Movember is for one month only and head starts are not allowed and go against the spirit of Movember. Remember – each Mo is a conversation starter for men’s health. As such, we encourage all Mo Legends to grow as genuine a Mo as possible. Strictly speaking, a traditional Mo is one that:

Ideally doesn’t join upwards to meet your sideburns (that’s technically a beard). Preferably doesn’t join downwards across your chin (that would be a goatee).

If you’re a Mo Bro with a passion for another type of facial hair, we encourage you to jump on the Mo Train during Movember in the name of men’s health.

No Mo is created equal, so some level of variation is expected. A small complimentary growth under the bottom lip (aka a tickler) is definitely fair game.

A great way to kick off your fundraising is to encourage your friends, family and colleagues to donate to you to shave it off on Movember 1st. Then regrow your moustache throughout the month. Maybe it’s time to try a new moustache style? Check out our Mo Style Guide.
