For the past 3 years, each November, I’ve let a glorious moustache sprout on my upper lip, much to the amusement of coworkers and friends.
But of course, I don’t just grow a ‘stache because they look awesome, and thus make me look even more awesomer. It’s part of Movember, the annual, month-long event where men grow moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer initiatives.
Movember ‘officially’ began in Australia in 2004, and has since become an international event, raising $126.3 million USD in 2011.
You may not have Scottish sheepherders, or Tibetan monks on hand like Nick to help your Mo’ grow, but you can go to Movember.com for more information on how you can participate as a Mo’ Bro or Mo’ Sista.
