An era came to close with the series finale of Mad Men. 1960s Don Draper shines a light on many struggles men still face today. Our CEO and co-founder, +Adam Garone, takes and look at what modern men can learn from this iconic character.
Disclaimer: I’m a fan of Mad Men. I can relate to some of the struggles of Don Draper. I’m not a physician. I’m not a psychologist. I’m the co-founder of the Movember Foundation. I’ve dedicated the last 12 years of my life to improving men’s health. The Movember Foundation’s goal is that men live happier, healthier, longer lives. Don Draper is the ultimate 1960s ad man from AMC’s Mad Men, which came to end today.  Don is a man with perfect style...

Today on #WorldHealthDay, the #Movember Foundation wants you to stay healthy by staying connected with friends. We’ve all got a mate we haven’t seen for a few months, because work, family or life simply takes over – but a study we recently funded shows that men who lose touch with friends have an increased risk of mental illness, even suicide. Movember is all about friends getting together, having fun and creating conversations that change the face of men’s health. It only takes a minute to reach out to a friend - tag someone you are thinking about or share this post. Who knows, you just might change a life today.

“Fun is our Trojan Horse”. Our Co-founder JC took to the stage at the recent TEDxClapham session in London to talk about how the ‪#‎Movember‬ Foundation is engaging men in their health by making the conversation fun rather than serious. Find out more about how an unconventional approach to serious issues can help disrupt the status quo in this critical area.

We're getting one step closer to a world where no man dies of testicular cancer.

A major research study, conducted by Dr. Clare Turnball and her team at the Institute of Cancer Research in London,  has uncovered several new genetic mutations that could drive the development of testicular cancers in men – and also, very critically, it has identified a gene which may contribute to some tumours becoming resistant to current treatments. This will help lead to new options for men whose testicular cancer progresses in spite of the best available treatments.

This discovery was made possible thanks to your Mo, passion and support. Find out more about how the Movember Foundation is changing the face of testicular cancer research: http://bit.ly/MovFindings

The guys we know simply as JC, a #Movember  co-founder, and Christoph Waltz, epic Mo Bro, chatted with +Town & Country about how Movember became a global men's health movement.

It takes more than a month to change the face of men’s health. The Movember Foundation is fighting year-round because of you, and we’re stoked to share that we’ve been listed as one of the world’s top non-governmental organizations. 

Says who? What does that mean? What’s the Movember Foundation? Take two minutes and learn more.
Thanks to you, the Movember Foundation has been selected as one of the world's top NGOs for the third year running...

On  #WorldCancerDay  a world where no man dies from prostate cancer is getting closer thanks to you. Your funds and support allow the #Movember  Foundation to work year-round finding cures and creating better treatments to improve the quality of life for men living with cancer. 

Our recent prostate cancer breakthrough is truly changing the course of prostate cancer and on ‪#‎WorldCancerDay‬ we’d like to thank every one of you involved in making #Movember funded research programs like this happen: http://bit.ly/MovBreakthroughs

Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey, Nathan, and for leaving the additional response.  We are sorry to hear how you feel about the Galas and how that has affected your participation moving forward. Feedback like yours helps to shape future Movember plans, so again,  thank you for sharing your thoughts. As you mentioned (and demonstrated by leading your team to raise $1,500), the funds raised do wonders for people and that was a primary reason for limiting the number of Galas hosted this year. We will definitely take your feedback to our team for 2015 planning, and hope to have you back next year.

Changing the Face of Men’s Health
Introduction

The Movember Foundation is the leading global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health

The Movember community has raised over $550 million to date and funded over 800 programs in 21 countries.  This work is saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.

The Movember Foundation challenges men to grow moustaches during Movember (formerly known as November), to spark conversation and raise vital funds for its men’s health programs. To date, 4 million moustaches have been grown worldwide, but we won't stop growing as long as serious men’s health issues exist.

This is the official G+ for The Movember Foundation
