Movember - want an excuse to grow a moustache?

Movember is the global men's health charity encouraging men to grow and women to support the Mo (moustache) for the 30 days of Movember.  (I guess we could all encourage women to grow them this month too, but somehow I don't think it'd catch on.) 

Grow just a moustache to spark public and private discussions about important health issues like prostate cancer.  That's right!  Your question of, "Are you growing a moustache?! Can now be answered that you're doing it for Movember health reasons.  Prostate health, in particular.  I can't think of a better conversation starter.  People will think you're a hipster and find out you're just really into health education!

In the U.S., 92% of dairy producers are men.  The dairy industry is trying to spread the news - take care of your own health.  Movember Dairy is trying to raise awareness about prostate cancer risks, raise funds for research, and encourage men in our industry to get an annual physical.

My brother grew a pretty sweet one recently.  Kris' dad had one forever but now it's gone, my dad's been clean shaven my whole life, and we'll see how Kris' goes this month.  Feel free to play along and send me pictures! 

Maybe it'll grow a little straighter than this ...

Nice little blurb! Anyone interested in participating in Movember and looking to win more sponsors (aka: raising more for the cause), might I direct you to this:
Grow for it!

Ha! When they're sporting real ones that aren't nearly as thick? : )
