The state of men’s health is something that isn’t being talked about enough. Every year, men of all ages and backgrounds get involved with Movember to raise awareness for men’s health; taking action to help men live a better, and longer life.
The Power of Social Media
Take to social media throughout November, or Movember, and you’ll see men growing out their moustaches to tackle prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention. Men are dying far too young because of these prevalent issues, and the Movember Foundation has seen the number of ‘Mo Bros’ grow from 30 in 2003 to over five million to date.
Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram provide great platforms for this charitable cause, allowing audiences to donate to their family and friends that are taking part in Movember. The Movember Foundation states that the Mo can inspire donations, conversations and real change. A global foundation that began in Australia, every year men grow out their Mo’s with the same commitment of addressing men’s health issues.
Admittedly, these social channels are inundated with bizarre and bewildering national days of the year. However, Buy Me Media were keen to point out how businesses should stay in touch with these trends to organically improve SEO, and stay ahead of competitors.
Movember: More Than Just A Trend
What we particularly admire about Movember, is how it’s much more than just a trend of the day. Inspiring men around the world to grow a moustache to raise awareness of men’s health stirs the social conversation, and often results in some eye-catching Mo’s in the process. The results have been incredible too, with the Foundation now aiming to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25% by 2030.
