A "Movember" to remember
The sudden appearance of moustache growing men around our shop at the beginning of the month signaled MTNW’s entrance into the annual “Movember” challenge. “Movember”, the month formerly known as November, is annual charity event organized to benefit men's health - specifically the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the LiveStrong Foundation.
A “Mo” is Australian slang for moustache (Australia is where the Movember movement began in 2003), and today the program is responsible for the sprouting of thousands of Mo's on men’s faces around the world while also raising vital awareness and funds for men’s health. Men who grow moustaches for the month of Movember are called “Mo Bros”, and they become walking, talking billboards for the cause. Almost our entire engineering staff joined in the pursuit of decorative facial hair, and as the month draws to a close it’s clear that in less than 30 days the hirsute among us have managed to grow some impressive Mo’s.
As you can see in the photo, even Newton couldn’t resist joining the competition!
