Internet load board Getloaded’s employees are donating their faces for a good cause. As part of “Movember,” 11 Getloaded male employees have pledged to grow mustaches in November as they raise money and awareness for men’s health.

This annual event challenges men internationally to start November clean-shaven and “groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery” while fund raising for prostate cancer and other men’s health issues throughout the month. Since 2004, Movember has raised more than $174 million, including $80.7 million in 2010, alone.

“Philanthropy is a core element of the Getloaded culture,” says Fergus Caldicott, general manager at Getloaded. “So we were excited to combine giving back and growing mustaches – a popular feature in the trucking industry.”

As so called “Mo Bros,” Getloaded employees have a team fund-raising page at http://us.movember.com/donate/team-details/id/292854/searchTerm/getloaded where they hope to raise $1,100 dollars for men’s health programs.
