What is Movember, you ask?
If you still haven’t heard of this by now you definitely need to keep reading.
Back in 2003, a group of friends in Australia came up with the idea to grow out their mustaches in order to raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer. Inspired by women and their efforts to fight breast cancer, Alan Garon, co-founder of Movember, and a few of his friends, decided to spike conversations about men’s health. By changing their face men get asked about their appearance and then get to talk about the more important issue - taking care of their mental and physical health. An idea that seemed quite strange and funny at the time, nowadays raises millions of dollars annually.
The word itself is made up of 2 words - “Mo” which is an Australian slang word for mustache + the month of November, aka “Moustache Season” = MOVEMBER
What are the basic rules?
Hint: The last rule works year-round and is actually pretty good one.
*If you cannot grow a “mo”, don’t worry. It’s no just you and it is totally OK. You can still get involved and spread the word by casual conversations with your mates and all the guys you know. You can also register at movember.com and complete a challenge. Even better, you can join a team and “compete” with others. Thus, it’s easier to not fall off tracks. Plus, sharing with others is always more fun.
Who can participate?Everyone! It’s not just for the gentlemen. Women, who are called “Mo-Sistas”, are encouraged to participate as well. Females can wear the sign of the campaign and talk with men they know about health issues. They can use their irresistible power to convince their beloved ones to pay more attention to their health. Remember, the main purpose is to spread awareness and get men to care more about their own well-being.
How are we involved?
In November, The Crystal Wonderland will feature a special crystalware collection. It is dedicated to the true gentlemen with a sophisticated taste. You will have the chance to choose from variety of crystal decanters, whiskey sets with tumblers, wine glasses, and many more brilliant home gifts. Every item that is part of the collection is marked with the little mustache symbol in the bottom right corner of the product picture. Stay tuned for special deals and one-day promos as well. This is a great opportunity to cross off some holiday gifts from your list and make shopping even more enjoyable.
At the end of the month, 10% of the proceeds from purchases from The Crystal Wonderland’s Movember Collection will be donated to the Movember Foundation. We strongly believe that every action counts. Together we can make a difference! Look for the entire collection on our e-store beginning November 1 or check it here.
