November is really Movember

Have you noticed lately that handle bar mustaches are coming back in style?

Did you know there is a group that is called Movember and every November  they are responsible for the sprouting  mustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo’s, these men raise vital awareness and funds for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. 

I first learned about this last year when my son-in-law started to grow his Mo. Even though my daughter was not happy about it I sponsored him and thought what a fun way to raise awareness.  I plan on doing the same thing this year!

This year he started on November 1st.  Here is what he has to say about it…”I want to take a stand against cancer. My upper lip will be my canvas, on which I will plant my symbol of solidarity. This year my ‘stache will be the most thick and luxurious yet.”

Do you know of someone who is participating? Would you donate to this upper lip group? I hope you can.

It is pretty funny that we already have a photo of my grand-daughter playing along with her daddy’s idea of a mustache when she was barely a day old.

  1. I’d heard bits and pieces about Movember, but never really understood the cause. Thank you for the explanation. It’s great your son-in-law is so dedicated to the cause. Very cool.
    Wanted to stop by to thank you for visiting my place and commenting on my “cool grandma” post. So nice to “meet” you! 😀
