Movember!

O.k. Peeps!

It's Movember time!

What is Movember you ask?

"During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer.

On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words, they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember, for Movember. "

But in simpler terms it means this guy:



Is gonna grow a sexy 'stache for a good cause.

Prostates!!

Because really is there a better reason?

I'll post photos every week so you can see the progress!

Thanks so much!

We love all of the men in our lives and want to keep their prostates safe!!!!



P.S. Whomever came up with Movember was a smart man...because really...men growing moustaches for fun would be silly! Now they can be silly AND helpful!

P.P.S - That is not to say men who have moustaches as a permenant fixture are silly! Not all! In fact, they are quite handsome ;)

David's in! Darn you. But it puts it into perspective when a friend of a friend is dying of prostrate cancer right now. Ugh. I hate cancer.

looking forward to the photos of the stubble... er, I mean, the stache. I'm sure it will be Tom Selleck worthy! No pressure! ;)

My brother did this last year. A very good cause. I hope that you post regular pictures of the 'stache!

On a less happy note, but one that I hope will be an encouragement when you both want him to just shave it off, my father-in-law was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer last week:(
