For ten years, Movember has been changing the face of men’s health. Movember has grown from humble beginnings with a couple of blokes having a beer and deciding that it was important to raise universal awareness for men’s health. The movement took off across the globe as photos and support were shared over the web. Last year over one million men got behind the cause as walking, talking (hairy) billboards and raised over $124 million in funds to fight prostate cancer and male mental health issues.
“We honestly didn’t expect such global participation so quickly, but once we got online, it was just so easy to reach passionate supporters and everything took off like wildfire" explains Adam Garone, one of the Movember co-founders.
At Google, we have been inspired that a group of motivated Aussie guys could spark global change — and have such fun doing it along the way. So we’ve chosen to celebrate this story in our new Chrome video.
The web is powerful. It can be used to fight a cause, start a fashion craze, build a global audience or simply connect in a rich and beautiful way. It’s a place where you can find inspiration and turn it into action...to create, connect and share. The web, truly is, what you make of it.
With only a few weeks to go, you can register for Movember and get involved at www.movember.com
