Gentlemen, its time to mod your face for Movember! Post your lip fuzz!

Quote:
Hi,

It's Movember, the month formerly known as November, now dedicated to growing moustaches and raising awareness and funds for men's health; specifically prostate and testicular cancer. I'm donating my top lip to the cause for 30 days in an effort to help change the face of men's health. My Mo will spark conversations, and no doubt generate some laughs; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for cancer's affecting men.

Why am I so passionate about men's health?
  • 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
  • This year 37,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed
  • 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime
  • 26% of men are less likely to go the doctor compared to women
I'm asking you to support my Movember campaign by making a donation by either:
  • Donating online at: http://mobro.co (there is a referrer to my profile, if you just want to donate to the cause in general use http://uk.movember.com/donate/ instead!)
  • If you want to go old school you can write a cheque payable to 'Movember', reference my name and Registration Number 1627540 and send it to: Movember Europe, PO Box 68600, London, EC1P 1EF
If you'd like to find out more about the type of work you'd be helping to fund by supporting Movember, take a look at the Programmes We Fund section on the Movember website: http://uk.movember.com/about

Thank you in advance for supporting my efforts to change the face of men's health.
Who is sporting a tache for Movember this year? I'll post some pictures of my lip fuzz as it develops, please throw yours into the mix as well guys!

Do neckbeards count? I think that's the only kind of beard/'stache I am able to grow in something resembling a regular fashion.

I've had a full beard since 1999, and I'm not shaving it for this or any other reason. ever.

I might go for a beard. A 'tache isn't going to happen. I'll be seeing an awful lot of beards and 'taches over the next few weeks - The Giants (Ice Hockey club) always take Movember very seriously!

I didn't shave yesterday or today. I might try it for a week or two, but I've been clean shaven all my life. It'll probably piss me off enough to whack it off by the end of the week

I had a shave yesterday and I'm raring to go.

By all means give it a try if you feel like it. There's a group of 10 or so of us at work all doing it this year.

I do appreciate that generally people already with established fuzz aren't going to take part, but I for one have pretty rapid and thick growing facial hair which I usually keep under control, so I'm joining in and having some fun, and I hope if you can that you will too!

I totally wanted to. But I can't. Especially not in a month. Would take at least 3. Every year I get a little bit closer.

I shaved yesterday and realized it was the 1st today so im going to let it all go for the month

After about 2 weeks it seems to stop growing as fast and one side seems to be denser than the other so i'll probebly be on the edge of just shaving it off by the 2 week period

I lasted 3 weeks last year before it was too annoying. I normally let mine grow a week or so before it starts to look to bad and shave. I did shave yesterday, though I did also just get the chinstrap and a stache just doesn't go well with the strap. Not sure what I'll do exactly :S My brother however is very committed, we shall see how far he gets before the facial hair starts to bug him.

I grew my beard for several months in Australia (shaving blades are incredibly expensive over there) and after 5 months had a huge 3" long bush and tach!

So, I'll give this a miss.

Pictures are all the better! If you look odd people will ask WHY you're doing it - and you can grab money for charity that way. Make sure you sign up on the site!
