About Movember

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the broken relationships between men and their razors.  Donning their mustaches, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men's health - specifically prostate cancer.

Since its humble beginnings in Melbourne, Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.9 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate with formal campaigns in Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada, the UK, South Africa, Ireland, Finland, the Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Belgium and the Czech Republic. In addition, Movember is aware of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas supporting the campaign and men’s health cause across the globe, from Russia to Dubai, Hong Kong to Antarctica, Rio de Janeiro to Mumbai, and everywhere in between.

No matter the country or city, Movember will continue to work to change established habits and attitudes men have about their health, to educate men about the health risks they face, and to act on that knowledge, thereby increasing the chances of early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment.

In 2011, over 854,000 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas around the world got on board, raising $126.3 million USD.

Big steps have been taken towards changing attitudes and habits relating to men’s health around the world, but there is still much to be done to catch up with the women’s health movement. Via the moustache, Movember aims to fulfill its vision of having an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health by continuing to spark conversation and spread awareness of men’s health issues each year.

Donation Information

The funds that Movember raise are invested in programs that address the strategic priorities Movember has identified, related to both prostate and testicular cancer.

Globally, fighting prostate cancer continues to be Movember’s highest priority. There are still many issues to be addressed, particularly when it comes to diagnosis - a key focus for many Movember funded research programs. Today, there still isn't a test that accurately tells a man which type of prostate cancer he has, resulting in many men being over-diagnosed and having to undergo unnecessary and harmful treatment. Equally important to Movember are Survivorship programs. Diagnosis is just the first step in a man's prostate cancer journey; Survivorship is the next and these programs can have a dramatic impact on the quality of life of men and their families and carers; they can mean the difference between men living a meaningful, quality life and just living.

In Australia, New Zealand and Canada, male mental health is our other priority area. As a community we are only now beginning to fully understand the devastating impact and cost of mental illness. The loss of life, particularly young men’s lives, as a result of depression is disturbing. For men living with depression, being able to fully participate in work and family activities is often a great challenge.

The funds raised are directed to programs run directly by the Movember Foundation and our men’s health partners in each country. Together, the channels work to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in line with our strategic goals, in the areas of Awareness & Education, Survivorship and Research.

With funds raised by the Movember community, we're working hard to have a real impact.

A Personal Message

I annually raise money and awareness for Women's health and I'm proud of those efforts but after reading the statistics and understanding the Movember movement, I am all in.  This movement needs voices and action and I love the idea behind the moustache because it adds a sense of humor to the otherwise embarrassing topic of Prostates and Mental Health.  However, I find some hesitation to participate because spouses or girlfriends are unsupportive of the 'grow a moustache' movement and I have heard everything from threats to outright refusal for their significants to participate.

The next part of what I'm about to say is to those women. I will pause for a minute while you gather them so they can read this.

I have spent two decades of my life and have personally raised over $80,000 to raise awareness and support research to save all of your womanly parts.  Your boyfriend, spouse, casual fling, is making a pledge to ensure that we help raise awareness and support research to protect their manly parts and those of your brothers, your fathers, your sons and your nephews.  If you can't get over the 'stache' for a month and rally to support your man, you should be ashamed of yourself. Growing facial hair for a month should not end a relationship, dying from Cancer on the other hand, most certainly does.

For the rest of the women out there, there are a whole lot of sensitive, caring and supportive men who are participating in this event and need your love, care and attention.  If you see someone with a weird moustache during November, I encourage you to smile at them and cheer them on.  

Let's be clear on the facts:

In Canada
:bulletred: 1 in 7 Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer -  the most common cancer among Canadian men
:bulletred: 26,500 Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012
:bulletred: On average, 73 Canadian men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every day.
:bulletred: On average, 11 Canadian men die from the disease every day.

In the United States
:bulletred: About 241,740 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed
:bulletred: About 28,170 men will die of prostate cancer
:bulletred: 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.

These numbers are unacceptable.  Did you know that each Movember moustache grown in 2011 sparked a total of 2,413 conversations around men’s health? Those are conversations that absolutely need to happen! So let's support our men and stand behind their silly stache's! Just like they stand behind us when we support things they don't fully understand.

We're supporting Movember and imploring you to do the same

Craft a Moustache Contest

Thu Nov 1, 2012, 12:05 AM

What is Movember?

During the month of November each year, Movember asks men across the world to grow a moustache (or Mo') with the aim of raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health issues. Mo Bros are helping to change the face of men’s health by effectively becoming walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by promoting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. Together, we are truly changing the face of men’s health.

How to help

  • Raise awareness, share the news!
  • Register on and grow a mighty manly moustache on that beautiful face of yours, you can choose to join deviantART's US Team, Canadian Team, Australia Team, Mexico Team or go on your own. Ladies, get your men to join the cause!

1. Miscellaneous vs Other

Over the past few months, we've been diligently working on cleaning up the category tree of old and unused categories.  While most of this will go unnoticed by the community, what you will notice is the change from "Miscellaneous" galleries to "Other".  The reason for this change is simple.  The concept of Miscellaneous leads one to believe that it's a junk drawer category for everything under the sun when the intention was to be an "Other" category for deviations that don't fit well in other sub-categories of the tree.  We're also working on updating the categories with better and more concise descriptions.

2. Attacking the Artist

I seem to go over this particular point in various ways many times over and it's very likely the people needing to be reading this response, aren't the ones reading this newsletter regularly. However, let it not be said that I don't respond.  Daily deviation selections are done by a group of people I have selected. Some are volunteers and some are paid staff and they were selected by me because I trust their opinions and value their eye and I regard them as community leaders. However, they are human and sometimes mistakes are made. We routinely use image comparison tools to avoid copyright issues but even that isn't fool proof and when a stolen image is discovered it's dealt with almost immediately. The truth of the matter is, you will not love every Daily Deviation selected. However, instantly flaming the artist or the selector has got to be one of the most confusing and frustrating practices I'm witness to on deviantART.

A similar situation seems to occur with contest & challenge semi-finalist and winners announcements. A grave misconception is that all contests are judged by the same people.  Allow me to clear up that myth.  Each contest is assigned a panel of judges whose expertise fit with the nature of the contest or challenge.

While, I appreciate your passion in communicating your disagreement with anything to do with the site, flaming an artist on their deviation is both rude and misplaced anger. In both situations, the artist has no control over their image being selected and it's demoralizing to have your piece ripped to shreds because a third-party decided to put you in the spotlight. Receiving a Daily Deviation or winning a contest can be both a blessing and a curse for the artist and that's unfortunate.

Should you feel the need to share your discontent in regards to DD selections or Contest/Challenge winners, please feel free to communicate it with me.  On occasion, the community has alerted me to non-qualifying selections and we've rectified the situation and I've also had great conversations with people.  I am not inviting you to swear profusely in my general direction, however, if you're choosing to spew venom at the artist or at me, please email it to me and leave the artist alone.

I love the community at deviantART and I've been a part of it for many years. I've felt the outpouring of support and encouragement over those years and I don't believe that the "bullies" speak for the majority.  Unfortunately, they do mar the general awesomeness that is our community and it's time to really sit and think about how we communicate and interact with each other in our virtual world.  It's very easy to forget there are people at the end of the screen and it's super easy to unleash the beast within, without immediately feeling or seeing the ramifications of hurt feelings or anger you've incited in someone else, as a result.

Last Friday we celebrated Spirit Day and we dressed up in purple and roared against bullying but now we have to put that into practice and it starts with every single one of us.  Bullying starts and ends with us.  So, let's try and treat people kinder, let's take a minute before responding with vile words and attacks because our feelings are hurt and try to break this cycle.  If you are a victim of bullying at deviantART or see someone who seems to be bullying someone else, feel free to note or email me about it. I'm happy to help you use the tools available to stop the cycle and enjoy deviantART the way it should be enjoyed.

Pass it along.

Seniorityheader 2 by fourteenthstar
This article marks the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 1000 deviants holding the highly saught after ` -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.

So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community. 

Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the many others who deviate to be recognised in the crowd.

Today, we present to you the following deviants who have all been awarded Seniority in our current round of community recognitions. They have all been nominated for their efforts in the community by multiple deviants, Staff and Volunteers.
Announcing the newest Senior members in our community -- congratulations everyone!

Spirit Day 2012

Wed Oct 17, 2012, 1:50 PM
    "Ultimately, I want Spirit Day to make just one person feel little bit better about his or herself, to feel safe enough in their own skin and to be proud of who they are" - Brittany McMillan

In memory of the young LGBT people who lost their lives to suicide, Brittany encouraged her friends to wear purple on a day in October -- a day that came to be known as Spirit Day. Since then, GLAAD has helped turn Spirit Day into a global event that inspires millions of individuals, celebrities, TV personalities, media outlets, companies and schools to wear purple in a stand against bullying.

While Spirit Day does focus on the LGBT community, I believe that it's anti-bullying message is relevant to every community.  It only get's better, if we take the pledge to make it so. 

Practice compassion and understanding, and treat others how you would like to be treated and we can make a difference. 

Show your support for this anti-bullying message on October 19th by participating in one or more of the following:

:bulletpurple: Turn your devID or your avatar purple
:bulletpurple: Create Spirit Day artwork and submit it to our Spirit Day Gallery. Submit your artwork that encourage themes such as acceptance, love,  kindness, inclusion, diversity, embracing differences, compassion, empathy, and of course, purple!
:bulletpurple: Show support for fellow deviants
:bulletpurple: Be awesome

Daily Deviations Update

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 13, 2012, 7:55 AM

Happy Monday Morning  :dance:

I started this morning by signing something "Moonbam13" so either this typo means I need more coffee, or this week is going to be BAMTASTIC!

I'm rooting for the latter ;)

I wanted to post a quick update on changes to Daily Deviations.  It is important to note that these changes have not been hard-coded so my team is manually following these new guidelines.  This means that errors can and likely will occur until the coding is complete, your patience and understanding is appreciated :)  

The following guideline changes are in effect:

:bulletred: The 3-month rule is now the 6-month rule, meaning that it must be at least 6-months since the last time an artist received a daily deviation. (This was an overwhelmingly popular suggestion from the community and I agree, it's a good one!)

:bulletred:  Daily deviation selectors may only select one daily deviation per day maximum. This has been put in place to focus on Quality vs Quantity.  

 It is the hope that these changes, along with internal changes, will help to ensure that the selections will better reflect the variety and talent that can be found in our community.

Your feedback and suggestions are always welcome, so feel free in the comments below or shoot me a note :)

Thank you!
