Starting this weekend, the ‘Paradigm Mo Bros’ (James and Frank) are supporting Movember.

The Movember Foundation

The Movember Foundation charity has been running events since 2004 to raise awareness for men’s health issues focussing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. It started in Australia and New Zealand and by 2007 events were launched in Ireland, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, El Salvador, Spain, the UK, Israel, South Africa, Taiwan, and the USA.

The Movember Foundation has since raised $174-million worldwide, with the Canadian Mo Bros collectively leading the way for donations.


Seven Nightly News (an Australian current affairs programme) aired a story in 1999 featuring a group of young men in Adelaide who coined the term “Movember” and the idea of growing moustaches for charity throughout the month of November. Members of the Adelaide-based “Movember Committee” explained how they came up with the idea for Movember one night in the pub. The group started with 80 men from Adelaide and soon became a nation wide phenomenon. In 2004, an unrelated group in Melbourne, Victoria organised an event where 30 men would grow a moustache for 30 days in order to raise awareness for prostate cancer and depression in men. This group would later become the Movember Foundation charity.

The Rules

  1. Each Mo Bro must begin the 1 Movember with a clean shaven face

  2. For the entire month of Movember each Mo Bro must grow and groom a moustache

  3. Don’t fake it. No beards, no goatees, no fake moustaches.

  4. Use the power of the moustache to create conversations about men’s health and to raise funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.

  5. Each Mo Bro must conduct himself like a true gentleman….
