Get ready for it... November is Movember at CrackBerry and MO-bile Nations!

Movember at Mobile Nations!
By Kevin Michaluk on 30 Oct 2012 09:48 pm EDT

If you're taking part in Movember this November, be sure to join our Mobile Nations Network at! Full details below...

November is almost here which means one thing... soon you'll be seeing loads of self-confident men walking around in glorious moustaches. That's right, November is MOVEMBER and this year we're going to join together across our MO-bile Nations communities to grow out our facial hair and raise funds and awareness of men's health issues.

If you're not familiar with Movember, jump on over to and learn about it. Once up to speed, make the decision to REGISTER as either a Mo Bro or Mo Sista (that's right, ladies can participate too, no moustache required). Don't overthink it it. Commit to it. Join in as your fellow members, writers and moderators of Android Central, CrackBerry, iMore, Windows Phone Central and webOS Nation put their smartphone differences aside to come together next month for Movember.

For those who make the brilliant decision to participate in Movember, be sure to join the Mobile Nations Network we've setup on the Movember website. You can join the network as an individual or as part of another Movember team. Through the Network page we'll be able to track everybody who's participating and see how much we can raise together as a community. Come the end of Movember, we'll be awarding lots of prizes to those who participate. Best Moustache. Most Money Raised. Best Moustache Photo. You name it. Expect lots of awesome prizes and recgonition for those who join in.

November 1st is just around the corner. The good news is it doesn't take much effort to prepare for Movember. All you need to do is shave your face clean when you go to bed tomorrow night after eating your Halloween treats. If you're still on the fence, hit up the links below for more information. And if you're ready to join us on our Movember challenge -- YOU ROCK -- and should keep reading for more important details.

Join in on Movember at Mobile Nations! 

Step 1: Register at and Join our Mobile Nations Movember Network

Watch the video above for a step by step walk through of what to do. The easiest way to participate is to register as an individual member. Once registered, you can join the Mobile Nations Network. To do that, you need to login to, then click the "Networks" link on the left side of the page. Once there, search for "Mobile Nations". When the results pop up, there will be a button allowing you to join the network. 

The reason we went for creating a Mobile Nations Network (vs. the option to do a Movember Team) is that it allows for global participation. Teams only work within a region. What this means is that the money you raise personally will go back to your own country, but together we can still act as a group and see how much we raise together. That said, if you want to create your own team, or already are part of a Movember team, you can still join our Mobile Nations Network.

Step 2:  Start November with a clean shave.

Yep. Though we'll end the month with glorious moustaches, we need to start the month with no whiskers. Shave and take photos. And videos. If you're reading this we know you own a capable smartphone. You'll want to put it to use all this month.

Step 3: Grow a Moustache, Raise Money on your My Mo Space Page

Don't shave. That's easy. The next part is raising funds. Luckily, the website makes this super easy. When you create your Movember account, a My Mo Space Page will be created for you. You can even customize the url of this page. Once you have it, send it out to your friends, co workers, family, twitter followers, etc and encourage them to help you on your mission.  

On your public Mo Space page there is a button to "DONATE TO ME". All people need to do is click the link, follow the instructions, and they're good to go.

Step 4: Take Lots of Photos and Videos and Enjoy the POWER of growing out your Moustache

Be sure to put your smartphone to use and take lots of photos and videos all month long. It's easy to post updates including images and video to your My Mo Space page. We'll be monitoring all of the pages of Mobile Nations Network members throughout the month. Awesome photos and videos will get posted up on our sites, help making your moustache famous and helping you raise more money as we link back to your page. You can always email us photos and info about your cause and campaign to too. 

Step 5: All good things must come to an end....

Once Movember is over it's time to shave... although, if you've come to love your moustache you may not want to part with it. As we said above, throughout the month we'll keep in touch with all those participating. We have lots of fun and prizes in store for those who participate in Movember at Mobile Nations! 

That's it. Time to get registered Mo' the force be-whisker you!

WOOHOO!!! Being challenged in the facial hair department is OK. I am too. I'm kinda sad I have to shave clean... kinda have a week head start right now, but I'm gonna go clean and grow it out.

Good times ahead!

As a researcher dedicated to understanding the molecular basis of prostate cancer and more importantly disease progression to its lethal state and developing new therapies to manage disease progression, I strongly encourage you all to paricipate. Prostate cancer strikes 1 in 6 men in their life time. Treatment is problematic. We know how to detect cancer very well but are not very good at determining who needs to be treated. Prostatte cancer is unique in that the majority of men that are diagnosed do not require radiacl therapis that come with a myriad of life-style altering side effects. On the flip side men whose disease progresses and spreads to other parts of the body are difficult to manage and to date there is no cure. I work closely with patients, reseracheres and pharma and can tell you get strides have been made over the last 2 decades. Deaths from prostate cancer have declined 30 % in North America due primarily to better detection and intervention. Last year Canada raised more money for Movember than any country in the world. That came with substantial supprot from the NHL. That won't happen this year so we need everyone to help out. Gentlemen, go a stash and convince your 40-50 year old male family friends and neighbors to get tested. Mo-Sisters, do your part to. Get the men in your life to take this critical part of their health seriously.

Your Mo-Brother, BCMike

I'm NOT gonna shave this month at all. I'm growing a full beard and moustache. ALL IN FULL!!!

I don't know if anybody will even donate if I become a member for this november coming. I'll try. I already have a ton of videos on my youtube account. Lol

Okay, maybe come november, I'll make a video of the beard and all, then another each week. It doesn't grow THAT quickly. I honestly right now, almost look like a warewolf!! :P

Ahhhh! I think this is going to make me cry! I grow some glorious facial hair but I have to be clean shaven every day for work :-( Man this sucks so much.
