Movember: The Beginning
Today marks the beginning of Movember. That’s right — Movember.
What is Movember?
Movember is a mash-up of moustache and November. It involves growing only a moustache for the entire month of November. No goatee or beard. But it’s not only about facial hair. The moustaches are grown to draw awareness to men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. The main benefactors of official donations are the Prostate Cancer Foundation and Livestrong.
Now I would never be confused with a grown man when it comes to facial hair growth. You could say I was facial hair challenged. I have never let facial hair grow for longer than a couple weeks. In fact, I’m almost afraid of what I’ll look like at the end of November. But if in the long run, my attempt at a moustache gets some conversations started — “What is that thing growing on your upper lip?” — and awareness is raised for men’s health issues, then it will be well worth it.
