The AMTdirect team loves to take on a challenge for a worthy cause, and what could be more worthy than men’s health? That’s why we’ve joined the Movember movement to bring attention to some of the biggest health issues faced by men: cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention.
Like many great things, Movember got its start in a pub. In 2013 Travis Garone and Luke Slattery sat down for a pint in a quiet bar in Melbourne, Australia. They noted that the mustache had become a fashion “don’t.” They found 30 guys willing to try to change that by growing as much mustache as possible during November.
Inspired by the mustache's ability to generate a conversation, the group decided they could use their annual grooming gag to make a difference. In 2014 Adam Garone registered the Movember Foundation to raise funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA).
