What is Movember?
Movember, the month formerly known as November, is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men’s health - specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

Movember participants, known as Mo Bros, sign up on Movember.com and start their hairy adventures clean shaven on 1st Movember. For the remainder of the month they grow, groom and nurture their moustache with the invaluable support of the women in their lives, Mo Sistas.

Through the power of the moustache, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas raise awareness and funds for men’s health by participating in Movember. To find out more click here or sign up to join the movement.

How much money has been raised?

Since 2003, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas across the world have raised HKD $5.5 billion. Each year this figure grows and we continue our outstanding investment in programmes that are changing the face of men’s health.

Where does the money go?

Movember funds world class programmes that are saving and improving the lives of men. Funds raised in Hong Kong are spent in Hong Kong.

It also allows us to know how many people are taking part and log donations against your total. By registering you are provided with all the information you require to enable you to raise funds and awareness for Movember.

What is a Mo? What are the rules?

A “Mo” is Australian slang for a moustache. Every Mo Bro must start Movember clean shaven and then grow a moustache for 30 days according to the rules - no beards, no goatees.

Remember, head starts go against the spirit of Movember. All Mo’s are grown equal.

I already have a Mo - How can I participate?

If you already have a Mo you can do a ‘reverse Movember’ and have people donate to your Mo Space to shave it off at the end of the month.

Alternatively, you could shave off your moustache alongside all the other members of the Mo community at the start of Movember and then re-grow your Mo throughout the month - maybe it’s time to try a new style?

How can women get involved?

While growing a Mo is left to the men, many women known as Mo Sistas, who love moustaches and want to support men’s health, do a lot of important work for Movember. There are many ways to get involved in Movember as a Mo Sista, from hosting parties and fundraising to having conversations and spreading awareness about men’s health.

Get started by signing up.

What is a Mo Space?

Mo Space is where you can view all Movember participants and check out their photos, videos, updates and fundraising. Every participant creates his or her own Mo Space when they sign up.

If you need to delete your Mo Space, please get in touch.

What is a team? How do I join or create a team?

A team is a group of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas sharing their Movember journey. Each team has its own Mo Space which can be shared to generate support and donations.

You can join an existing team by searching on Movember.com or you can create your own team when signing up or from your Mo Space (choose the Team tab). Then invite your friends, colleagues or sports team to join.

Here is some extra info about teams:

  • All funds raised by each team member are counted towards the team’s total
  • Your team can compete against other teams

  • Team captains can change the team name in the ‘Edit details’ section of Mo Space

What is a network? How do I join or create a network?

A network is a group made up of different teams and individuals that could represent a company, organisation, college or school, sporting organization or community group.

You can be a member of multiple networks, e.g. your work network and your sports team network. This allows you to contribute to their total amount raised and compare fundraising, whilst still participating on your own or in a team.

To join an existing network, just search on Movember.com. To create a new network get in touch with one of the Movember Team and we will help you out. Once the network is set up you will be able to invite individuals to join or team captains to add their whole teams to the network.
