HandmadeMN Fun Friday Finds ~ Movember in Minnesota

By Mara Olden of Dragonfly Adornments

Fun Friday Finds is celebrating Movember by putting together a "dude-style" treasury. Movember comes from combining a slang word "mo" for moustache and "November". Men will be growing their moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of prostate cancer and men's health. It is said that the goal of Movember is to "change the face of men's health."

By encouraging men to get involved by growing facial hair, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Besides getting an annual check-up, Movember encourages men to be aware of any family history of cancer, and to adopt a more healthy lifestyle. To learn more go to the PFC website.
