Movember Moustache? Yes please

Day 2 of Movember – raising awareness about men’s health

It is November, and you know what that means. It’s time to grow a stache. Luckily my friends I am very skilled in the ways of moustache growing. I was trained by a monk in Lindsay, Ontario. He was the master himself Peter Robson, my dad.  He had a mighty moustache for years it was revered in the town. People would recognize him for his moustache. One of our family friends knows sign language, and he mimics a moustache by putting his finger under his nose to indicate my dad. Although my dad doesn’t have a moustache any more, I still felt compelled to share the story because of Movember.

Movember for the first time

This is actually my first year doing Movember, so I am trying to embrace it. I joined a group with the CanadianDad Chris Read, and I’m excited to see how much we can spread the word about Movember.

We are thinking about having a Movember meet up later in November to help the cause and have some fun in the process, so keep an eye out for that.

Movember isn’t all fun and games

The money raised by all the Movember participants goes to a good cause. Men’s health. It is a topic that isn’t talked about nearly enough.

The funds are used specifically for prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives.   The money is used to support a broad range of programs to benefit men’s health.

Some of the programs that are funded include:

Prostate Cancer Canada
Awareness & Education
Global Action Plan
Canadian Male Health Network

Feel free to Donate

If you would like to donate, you can donate directly to me here. If you don’t have extra cash, I can understand that, so why not spread the word instead?
