Have you noticed more of your coworkers are sporting mustaches this month? They are most likely participating in Movember.

The movement was started by the Movember Foundation, which is committed to helping men live happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, the foundation has raised $650 million and funded over 1,000 projects.

Fred Hutch researcher Dr. Jonathan Wright started growing his first Movember-inspired 'stache in 2011, and continues to partner with his collegues from the University of Washington and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance to spread the word about men's health.

Below is the transcript from his tweet chat on November 24:
