The End of Movember

December 1, 2009 Leave a comment

It is sad but true, Movember has come to an end. Laurier Brantford’s Movember team has successfully raised more than $500 towards the cause.

Let us not mourn the end of Movember, but welcome the entrance of December!

As I promised last time, I will post my Movember pictures. Before AND after!

And that is Movember, ladies and gentlemen. I can’t wait for Movember 2010, be ready for it!

Movember

Welcome to the month of Movember! The one greatest month in the year succeeding October and preceding December! Now you might be asking: “Don’t you mean November?”

Ha, ha, ha! Not at all, silly! It’s Movember! The month where men all around the world cultivate their pride and glory under their nose.

Movember is an annual event that spans the complete month of November, when men and even women, grow their mustaches in support prostate cancer.

On the first of November everyone starts clean shaven and grows their mustache from then on until the end of November.

The whole point is to create awareness of prostate cancer and raise funds in order to put in research to this cancer that attacks men everywhere. Movember started in Australia in 1999, and now it has spanned internationally.

I myself am participating in this event! It has been a little over a week and I already look a lot like my dad (and a Mexican – no offense =P). I will be documenting my wonder lip-tickler growth and posting the final result at the end – so please look forward to that!

If you would like to support the cause and donate towards it, please help me and my team out by donating at the following link:
