What Movember Does With the Money
The Movember Foundation started out focusing on raising awareness around men's prostate cancer and testicular cancer, and then expanded into men's health in general, as well an men's mental health. Those last two areas of emphasis intersect pretty solidly in the whole Man Box phenomenon. Movember is teaching men to take care of their health, go to the doctor when they need to instead of 'toughing it out'. Movember is also teaching men to form closer bonds with others instead of isolating like the man box teaches. It's not weak to need help - it is courageous to admit it and ask for it!
Movember's mental health goal is to reduce male suicides. For those of you who didn't know, 75% of suicides are men. Clearly there is much room for improvement in the current definition of masculinity. I admire them for developing innovative programs and working with many other organizations to work towards this change.
The Movember website contains many stories from men around the world, and more information about the programs they fund and the work they are doing. It's a cool place to spend some time.
