Chalk it up to Movember, a global charity event that invites men to grow mustaches... Posted on 11/19/12 at 1:12 PM
During the month of November, the Movember movement is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on men’s faces in the Grand Forks area and in more than a dozen countries around the world. The so-called Mo Bros groom, trim and wax their moustaches to raise money and awareness for men’s health. The Mo Sistas, the women of Movember, may not be able to grow moustaches, but they help raise money and awareness, too.
Employees at the locally-owned restaurant, Rhombus Guys, decided to put their razors away for a month and grow a 'stache in honor of "Movember." Rhombus Guys is trying to convince the 1 percent of Grand Forks to come in, mustache's on, and shed positive light on the occupy movement and donate to something larger with Occupy 'Movember,' a national effort for men's health.
More than 500,000 men participated in "Movember," an effort that inspired men all over the world to grow mustaches last month to raise money for prostate and testicular cancer. Since it was founded by a bunch of beer-drinking Australians in 2005, Movember has raised more than $100 million, with men collecting sponsorships and earning more money as the mustaches grow.
A "Movember Bash" hosted by Team Grand Morks is set for 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday in the Empire Arts Center in downtown Grand Forks. Also, Altru’s Infant and Child Bereavement Program will hold a candlelight service at 7 p.m. Dec. 6 for all the babies who died shortly before or after birth.
