It’s the first of November, and that means that Movember is out in full force.
What is Movember? Well…
Movember is a moustache-growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men’s health. More specifically, prostate cancer, an issue that many don’t really like to talk about.
There’s a way to make a difference.
In short: Movember participants start clean shaven on November first, and grow moustaches throughout the month. This fine specimen to the right is collecting donations through the Movember website located here to help combat the evil that is prostate cancer. He’ll be growing (read: stubbling) through the month of November for a good cause.
Many current Oilers are participating in Movember, as well as some respected members of the Oilogosphere have in years prior. Black Dog Pat, Oilers Nation, and JeanShorts and BaggedMilk are a few that come to mind.
Once a week, I’ll keep you posted with the grim facial results. For the follicle fanatic, you can check the link above for more frequent updates. Any donation is greatly appreciated, as we’re working together for a common good. Specifically…well, you know.
So if you’ve got a couple of quarters clanging around in your couch cushions, put ‘em up for a good cause. It’s Movember.
