Pop star Joe Jonas has called on his fans for sponsorship as he grows a moustache to raise funds to fight prostate and testicular cancer.

The Lovebug hitmaker is taking part in the annual Movember event, which requires participants around the world to grow their facial hair throughout the month of November to draw attention to men's health issues.

Jonas launched his fundraising page on the Movember.com website on Friday (09Nov12) by posting a photo of his progress, and he has reached out to his Twitter.com followers asking them to donate what they can.

He writes, "Doing my part to raise Money and Awareness for Prostate Cancer. Help me and My Mustache by donating! Thanks!"
