What You Need to Know Before You Mo

Author: Movember
So you’ve joined the world’s biggest movement for men’s health. You’re at the starting line, ready to kick ass, take names and raise cash this Movember. Now what? Here are 3 things you should do before Movember 1st.
 

1. Get your Mo Space lookin’ good

Take a minute to deck out your fundraising page with a photo or two, add your motivation and set a fundraising target for the month. A completed Mo Space is like a well-groomed Mo: it makes everything better.
 

2. Know what you’re going to do

No matter how you’re doing Movember, get yourself going on the right foot.

Growing a Mo? Grow it right.
There are only a few rules in Movember, but they’re vital.
Rule 1: Start clean-shaven on Movember 1st. 
Rule 2: No beards, no goatees. We're all about the Mo.
For the rest, check out The Rules

Set your sights on a Mo style. Are you confident you can outdo Selleck himself? Or shooting for a modest Wisp?

Your moustache is your hairy billboard for the month of Movember, so get a little creative. Sacrifice a beard, dye your Mo, auction it off to the highest donor: the more eyes on your Mo, the better. Get inspired with all the ways to take your moustache to the next level.
