Lomos Grow Mos for Movember

14

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. Here's why i am taking part!

On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face and then for the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

Movember is about raising funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Did you know one man dies every hour from prostate cancer in the UK each year and more than 2,000 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer this year.

The more people we can get to become Citizens of Movember, the more lives we can impact. You can either grow a moustache as a Mo Bro, or join as a Mo Sista to show your support and help recruit other Mo growers to the team.

Lomography is also lending its support to this awesome charity month. We have a strong community and we need you all to spread the word, raise the awareness and ultimately raise some cash for research and medical care.

Lomography UK has donated 8 Mini Dianas to document 8 lomogs loMOs throughout Movember. We will start the month with a clean face and take a photo each day to show the sprouting manleyness which is moustache! I can’t wait to see what will come of this, it will be incredible.

Stay tuned for results but please let us show how strong our community is and join in the fun. Whatever country you are from, whatever sex you are, you can help.

We come together to photograph and document things of beauty, now lets come together to help rid the world of this evil cancer.

    I secretly hate movember. Its a good cause and I always end up donating to whichever friend grows the most extreme mo but I feel like its making filthy face hair a more acceptable fashion statement. And I dont need that...

    @tomkiddo get a fake one and have it as your facebook (or similar) profile picture for a month. Just spread awareness.

    @freyfrey I have convinced about 15 of my mates to join in with me. Most weren't happy about it because of vanity. Im sure you know but face hair growth is a big thing with men! Most of us agree that tashes are just wrong but its also good to do it just to see if you can! I either look like a fiddler or a pilot! I did raise £360 last year though so its all good.
