Internet users have until November 30 to vote for their favorite moustache (tache) and support men's charities the world over as part of Movember.

 

According to the website, Movember - a combination of "November" and "moustache" - began over a few beers in Australia as an idea of using 80s fashion to raise awareness for prostate cancer research. The men involved start November clean shaven and grow a moustache for the entire month and in the process raise money for charities and encourage people to talk openly about men's health.

Now in its sixth year, Movember is an international movement with men from around the globe forsaking shaving and fashion in a bid to raise money for, and awareness of, health issues such as prostate cancer. The movement has chapters in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States and has attracted support from heads of states such as British Prime minister David Cameron, who recently praised the efforts of those involved.

Internet users have until November 30 to upload and vote for their favorite "tache" (slang for moustache) at http://tacheofthetitans.com/. The website pits one man's facial hair against another's and calculates the percentage of votes each tache receives. Though there are no prizes for the winner, other than being "king of the tache," the website does raise awareness of men's health issues and allows everyone, even those not sporting facial hair, to get involved.
