Lennox_Movember_FB Intro

You may have noticed an increase of facial hair in Men during the month of November.  Maybe you’re aware of a contest or bet for the best facial hair during this month.  Yes, all the extra facial hair and wonderful mustaches are great but did you know there is a deeper meaning and a great cause behind this movement?  Movember is actually a global movement to raise awareness of men’s health issues.  I’m happy to share with you ways to spread the word and raise money for a great cause with the help of Lennox & Movember.com!  

What is Movember?

Movember is an annual event involving the growing of mustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as depression in men, prostate cancer and other male cancers, and associated charities. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at Movember.com. The goal of Movember is to “change the face of men’s health.”

By encouraging men (whom the charity refers to as “Mo Bros”) to get involved, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Besides annual check-ups, the Movember Foundation encourages men to be aware of family history of cancer and to adopt a healthier lifestyle.

Lennox has an annual partnership with Movember in which the brand creates content relevant for their social channels to spread the word and raise awareness about men’s health issues. Dave Lennox, having the great mustache that he does, has been the face of the Movember social campaign over the past few years. Check out this video below of Dave Lennox and the inspiration behind the Movember Movement.

How You Can Help Raise Money for a great cause!

For every content share/RT on the Lennox Facbook page and Twitter page during the month of November, Lennox will donate $2 to men’s health issues. On Instagram, for every like or comment, Lennox will donate $2 as well. Please note that only those engagements on the Lennox FB and Twitter page will count, so be sure to  follow/Like them and engage with their posts all month for a great cause!

Lennox will be posting content on all of their social channels throughout the month that provide information about men’s health issues. They also will be showcasing inspiring stories from men and women that have been affected by these issues, whether personally or by someone they know. The tagline, “Tell a guy you know” speaks to the Movember campaign and how its purpose is to educate others and create awareness around important issues.

I’m proud to be a MoSista and to be part of the Movement Movement for Men’s Health!  If you care about Men’s Health I hope you join the Movember Movement too! Help Men Live Happier, Healthier, Longer Lives!
