Nectar is proud to officially announce our support for Movember 2015.
As one of our ultimate goals as a modern nourishment apothecary is long-term health and wellness for all, we stand firmly behind the values and mission of Movember, and are thrilled to help spread awareness within the Nectar community today.
From humble beginnings in Australia twelve years ago, the Movember movement has grown into a global one, inspiring support from over 5 million people around the world.
Movember, also sometimes known as No-Shave November, is an annual event involving the growing of mustaches and beards during the month of November in order to raise awareness of men's health issues.
In particular, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis, and effective treatments, with the hope of ultimately reducing the number of preventable deaths.
The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to helping men live happier, healthier, and longer lives,
Since 2003, millions of people have joined the men's health movement and together have raised $677 million and funded over 1,000 programs focusing on education on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health, and physical inactivity.
There are a number of ways to get involved and show your support for the growing men's health movement. Other than signing up and growing a mustache or beard, you can help spread the word in your own community, or donate to the foundation directly.
