For those of you who have heard of this "Movember", maybe some yogis sporting a greasy Mo during yoga practice, and wondered "seriously? what gives?" a quick Movember update:
Created in Australia in 2004, men across the globe are encouraged to grow a moustache, from scratch, in order to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer. They finally have a webpage and easy donating-social media pages this year (see the worldwide page to find your country's Movember page).
As wonderful as that all sounds, an interview with co-founder Adam Garone revealed that his group of friends had originally thought of "Movember" as a way to get the moustache back. The charity came afterward as a way to gain sympathy and give the movement more "cred".
Regardless of the reasons, Movember raises millions of dollars every year for prostate cancer, with Canada currently at the TOP having raised over 24 million dollars so far.
Evidence of our shenanigans...
My eco-stache and Andrew's Einstein 'stache. Sadly I couldn't convince him to fundraise...
The gang, can you spot the real "Movember"? Let me tell ya, we even danced with those felted beauties.
