How do you start a global philanthropic movement?

If this week’s guest is any indication, all it really takes is a few beers and about 30 mustaches.

Seriously. According to Adam Garone, that’s exactly how The Movember Foundation was born way back in 2003.

Adam is the co-founder and Chief Mo Bro at The Movember Foundation, the only global charity focused solely on men’s health.

Since 2003, Movember has empowered millions of men and women to join the global men’s health movement, raising more than $850 million and funding 1,200 breakthrough men’s health projects in 21 countries focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

And it really did begin with 30 friends throwing a party and growing some sweet ‘staches.

In this interview, Adam talks with co-host Sean Spear about Movember’s humble origins, how his experience in the Australian military inspired a “life of service,” and why Movember’s internal culture is central to maintaining their brand and furthering their mission.
