How Goes the Mo’?

It’s almost the end of November, and a good day to check in on the boys and their whiskers. A couple of weeks ago I posted pics of friends who were kind enough (or brave enough?) to submit images of their starter ’staches, which they’re cultivating for a cancer cure.

If you haven’t already donated to Movember, a funky fundraiser and awareness-raiser, you still have time. All participants who are growing a moustache for the cause are accepting donations until the end of this month. The money goes to Prostate Cancer Canada to help the one in six Canadian men who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Not a bad reason to wear a crumb catcher for a month.

To put you in the Movember mood, I include here a few more photos of the men I know who have been growing a fuzzy lip for charity. You can also watch the antics of my nephew and his moustachio’d buddies in this special video, which they compiled for the occasion. My favourite take-away line: “If you can afford to party, you can afford to donate to prostate cancer research.” Well said, young friend.
