It's not all about the money
You don't even need to raise money to take part. It's all about raising awareness, educating the next generation about men's health issues and the basics of growing plants.
But if you and your children do want to take part, become Mo Bros and set up your own Mo Space on the Movember website - uk.movember.com - to raise money for a great cause.
So, this year, get your children involved and following in the footsteps of the grown-ups playing their part for Movember. Even the girls can give it a go and sign up for Movember as a Mo Sista!
Help us spread the word - tell your nearest school and children groups about Gro-vember. Miracle-Gro wants this year's charity event to grow bigger and bushier than ever.
Notes for Editors
Movember started in Melbourne, Australia, between a group of friends in 2003. Their aim was to raise awareness and funds for men's health issues, in particular prostate and testicular cancer and mental wellbeing, and encourage men to take better care of themselves. The idea was to grow a moustache during November and ask for sponsorship for doing so. The name came from mo- for moustache and -vember for November. November is now the number one organisation in the world committed to raising awareness and funds for men's health issues. More than four million men have got involved during the last decade and have raised £345M.
Gro-vember was developed with Movember and Scotts Miracle-Gro by the integrated advertising agency mcgarrybowen. For further information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, call +44-(0)7825-612414 or visit http://www.mcgarrybowen.co.uk
