MOvember: Moustaches for a good cause

(The beginnings of my cutie pie hubby's sweet 'stache!)

Good morning! Happy rainy Wednesday to you all! 
You may or may not know that the male population (including my husband and brother in law) is celebrating MOvember this month. You are probably wondering if I misspelled November or what I am talking about- here's what it is:
(from http://us.movember.com/about)

"The Mo, slang for moustache, and November come together each year for Movember.  
Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a moustache. The rules are simple, start Movember 1st  clean-shaven and then grow a moustache for the entire month. The moustache becomes the ribbon for men’s health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for cancers that affect men.  Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days.  
The idea for Movember was sparked in 2003 over a few beers in Melbourne, Australia.  The plan was simple – to bring the moustache back as a bit of a joke and do something for men’s health. No money was raised in 2003, but the guys behind the Mo realized the potential a moustache had in generating conversations about men’s health.  Inspired by the women around them and all they had done for breast cancer, the Mo Bros set themselves on a course to create a global men’s health movement.  

In 2004 the campaign evolved and focused on raising awareness and funds for the number one cancer affecting men – prostate cancer. 432 Mo Bros joined the movement that year, raising $55,000 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia - representing the single largest donation they had ever received.
The Movember moustache has continued to grow year after year, expanding to the US, UK, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland, Spain, South Africa, the Netherlands and Finland.  
In 2009, global participation of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas climbed to 255,755, with over one million donors raising $42 Million US equivalent dollars for Movember’s global beneficiary partners." 

Pretty good cause right? I am so proud of Geoff and Andy for being involved and I can't wait to see their scary facial hair grown in. Right now Geoff is working on a handlebar style...sexy!
