Best of 2009: Startup

The ongoing “Best of 2009″ idea continues with: Startup. What’s a business that you found this year that you love? What makes it special?

Not necessarily a business but a non-profit organization, I adore Movember. What the H is Movember, you ask? Well, even though I did write about it not too long ago, for the sake of brevity:

Movember (the month formerly known as November) is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for cancers that affect men.

At the start of Movember guys register with a clean-shaven face. The Movember participants, known as Mo Bros, have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their Mo, raising money along the way for cancers that affect men – specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

Technically it has been in the US since 2007, but I’m a bit late on most things. When it comes to health awareness, though, it’s never too late to start.
