It’s the most wonderful time of the year- for facial hair lovers. Right after Hallowee, do not be surprised if you see about 20 ‘stached or bearded guys in a single block especially, The Mission. Nope, it’s not related with winter. Nope, they’re not suddenly trying to get warm. It’s a lot more than that.

What is Movember? Movember is a campaign to start raising important conversations and general awareness in men’s health. During the month of November, participants bid a temporary goodbye to shaving creams and razors. They’re walking, talking, living advertisements for things such as “Do you annual checkup!” and “Screen for prostate and testicular cancers!”.

The annual Movember, which was conceived in Australia in 2003 and had its U.S. debut in 2007, has been attracting more buzz and more moustache-growers (dubbed “Mo Bros”) each year in the socially-conscious San Francisco Bay Area.
