What

What is MOvember?

MOvember (the month formerly known as November) is an annual charity event held during November with the aim of creating awareness and raising money for men’s health issues such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.

Guys in the Cayman Islands pay a registration fee, which gets them a specially designed MOvember T-shirt and the opportunity to compete for the coveted prize of CAY-MAN of MOVEMBER.  On MOvember 1st contestants start clean-shaven, and have the month to grow their MO.

To raise money they approach family, friends, neighbours and co-workers to sponsor them cash for growing their ‘tash. Simple isn’t it? Grow your MO, to save a Bro. MO Sistas can also show their support by encouraging the Mo Bros on how awesome they are… and by buying a T-shirt too.

At the end of the month we have Big Finale where contestants come dressed up to complement their MO and compete to win prizes in different categories. After a tash-tastic month of growing it’s great to celebrate with our fellow MO Bros and friends. MO Bros bring all the money they have raised for the month, for collection and counting on the night.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and you’ll receive regular Motivational updates to help you grow your MO, plus notifications of all the upcoming events, and other fun stuff too. We never leave a MO-Bro to grow it alone.

How

How can I get involved?

Head over to the sign up page and enter your details. Come to MOpening Night at The King’s Head on Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm, pay the $25 registration fee and collect your limited edition MOvember T-shirt.

To raise MOney for the cause with your MO, click on the DONATE page which gives you options for getting sponsorship online. You can also print out a sponsorship form and get your family and friends to sponsor you some MOney for taking the challenge and growing a MO for the month of MOvember.

There are various events worth attending throughout the MOnth of MOvember which will help raise awareness and generate money for the cause. Click on EVENTS for more details.

On Friday, December 1, 2017 at Calico Jacks Public Beach, the final event is the Closing Ceremony, at which all the MOney raised will be collected, and MO-bros will compete for the chance to be Man of MOvember. All proceeds raised from MOvember are donated to the Cayman Islands Cancer Society, which they use to create awareness and help with cancer treatment for those who can’t afford it. Money will also be going towards the new chemotherapy unit here in George Town.

The Rules

  • You must start off clean shaven.
  • For the entire month of Movember each MO Bro must grow and groom a moustache.
  • There is to be no joining of the MO to your side burns. That’s considered a beard.
  • There is to be no joining of the handlebars to your chin. That’s considered a goatee.

Donate

Raise dough with your MO

Raising funds with that MO of yours can be done in a number of ways. Setup your online donations page, or sponsor an existing MO bro.

You also have the option to raise money without having to worry about handling all that cash. Two options are available:

  1. Direct your friends to the Active Giving page in the link above, where they can choose an amount to sponsor you, and then pay by credit or debit card. MOst important, is that they enter your name in the Name of MO Bro you are sponsoring field, so the donation is attributed to you!
  2. For those feeling a bit more adventurous, you can setup your own fundraising page as part of the Movember Active Giving page. Go to the link above, and click Become A Fundraiser at the top of the page. Once you have setup your details, you can then direct your friends and family to that page, which will keep track of your donors, amount raised and your target.

Offline Donations

If you prefer to go old school, you can download a sponsorship form below, and hand it around at work or your next social gathering, and get friends and family to pledge some money to you for taking on the challenge. Best to collect cash when they fill out their details, as playing debt collector towards the end of the month can be a bit of a mission!
