Movember is all about bringing awareness to men’s health issues, and merch is playing a big role this year. Spreadshop is the official merch provider for Movember 2021. You may have heard of men growing mustaches in November to support the movement, but it’s much more than that.
Movember brings awareness to areas of men’s health: mental health, suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Over 1,250 health projects across the globe are made possible thanks to money raised by the community. And that can include you, too!
Take part in Movember by understanding the issues, uniting with your community and supporting a worthy cause with merch.
Movember was founded 18 years ago to address men’s health issues that were either ignored, or not addressed early enough. Men die an average of five years earlier than women due to largely preventable reasons. This includes the risk of testicular cancer in young men and high suicide rates among men in general.
Movember hopes to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25 percent by 2030. And the projects they fund through donations are on track to making that a reality.
They work with experts around the globe to change the network in which men are treated and supported for years to come. Making the change is possible by giving men the facts, changing behavior for the better and providing readily available services.
Movember relies on the community to create this advocacy. And merch is just one of many ways people can take part in this progress.
Support Movember With Mo Merch
The Movember Collection available through Spreadshop is a stylish and effective way to raise awareness. A portion of the proceeds go directly to supporting men’s health initiatives. But you can do more right with the people closest in your lives.
Use this merch as a jumping off point to bring people together and raise money. If you don’t have the ability to grow facial hair, there’s other ways to generate support.
Host your own mo-ment, either virtual or in-person. And Movember has some fun and engaging ideas. Plan a trivia night. Put on an online gaming tournament. Do a scavenger hunt. Getting the word out with early promotion is key to making your event a success.
If you want to do something more physical – make a move. Plan to run/walk 60 miles over the course of November with family and friends. The 60 miles represents the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour across the world.
Merch brings people together, and is a great fundraising tool; especially for something as community driven as Movember. Help raise awareness to men’s health issues this Movember any way you can.
