Movember day 1

Not much to report just yet. I had my last full face shave was last night and now it’s onwards to Movember and funky facial hair. I’ll do a few updates throughout the month and I hope I can stay the course.

Please donate what you can.

Bloggers for Movember 2012

with one comment

Thanks to A Clown on Fire for the heads up.

In the past few years November has seen me attempt(and fail!) NaNoWriMo. This year I wanted to do something attainable while also raising the profile, and a little money, for men’s health. The final push to get me involved came when my current employers announced they’d be supporting a Movember event this year.

The rules are simple;

  • Begin the 1st of Movember with a clean-shaven face
  • For the entire month of November each mo bro must grow and groom a moustache
  • There is to be no joining of the mo to [one’s] sideburns. (That’s considered a beard.)
  • There is to be no joining of the handlebars to [one’s] chin. (That’s considered a goatee.)
  • Each mo bro must conduct himself like a true country gentleman.

The last time I had facial hair was pre 2000 when I first met my then girlfriend-now wife. I have a plan of what I’ll groom and shall keep you all updated here with pictures of the moustache.

I’d ask you to help with the cause and make a donation no matter how small.

Who else is planning to be a mo bro or mo sista this year?
