It’s Movember Got a stache?

Grow a moustache this month to help fight against cancer

Every year, the world’s men participate in this thing called, Movember.

What started out as a funny gimmick has turned into an important worldwide cause — the moustache you grow can receive donations on ca.Movember.com (in Canada), and all proceeds go towards prostate cancer research.

As my buddy Matt Horvatin said last year, in a video with all his hipster friends, “If you can afford to party, you can afford to donate.”

Well said, Matt.

This year, like last year, I will dedicate the month of November to Richard from Friends, spending every day perfecting and purifying the whiskers on my upper lip to look like Tom Selleck, and I hope to perhaps get a little time for Robert Redford or Mike Ditka, as well.

So, if you want to help out, feel free to donate. Remember, nothing goes to me, and it’s all for a great cause!
