I’ve been sporting a beard for most of the year, but this month, it’s all about the Movember Mustache.

A bunch of friends, family, and I are raising money for Movember. Each year, in November, the Movember charity is responsible for mustaches sprouting all over the country on men’s faces.

Movember raises money for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. The charity gives funding to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG – The Lance Armstrong Foundation as well as its own educational and awareness programs.

I started by shaving off the facial hair. Little by little, it’s been growing back, but I admit I still have to get rid of the beard and chin hair and really shape my Movember Mustache. In the mean time, our team has raised more than $1,200 so far.
