UPDATE: Finished product.
UPDATE: My 11-14 mustache.
We're growing our mustaches!
First, because mustaches are awesome (in moderation)!
But just as importantly, we are growing mustaches to raise awareness for testicular and prostate cancer.
I've grown my November stache for 4 years and it's a blast (once you get past the creepy plumber stage).
This year, I've decided to try and raise a little cash to go along with the stache.
Luckily, the people at Movember.com have made it easy (see below for all the facts on the website).
So fellas, join me in growing a sweet, sweet mustache and let's raise some money for men's cancer issues.
And to be clear, we are growing MUSTACHES. Not goatees, not beards. Mustaches. Think about it. No one is gonna ask you why you haven't shaved. But if you have an awesome stache, people are gonna wanna know why. Boom. Awareness. Raised.
So, are you man enough to sport a mustache for a few weeks?
