The Movemberists – ‘Tache for cash…

image

Every November there is a marked increase in the number of male faces sporting hirsute growths about the upper lip area.
A veritable plethora of furry philtrums in fact.

This outbreak of creative shaving is in support of the Movember Foundation, set up in 2004 to raise awareness of prostate cancer and to raise funds for the research and treatment of this and other men’s health issues.

Participants start November clean shaven and collect sponsorship to grow a moustache for the whole month. The ‘tache can be any style but must stand alone, unconnected to any other facial hair such as beards or sideburns.

This will be the third year that we have got involved at work, prone as we are to looking silly for charity. This was last year’s model…

..I went for the dignified Brigadier look.

This year I’m going to try the upside down horseshoe of hair that is described by the Movember style guide as the “Trucker” but I prefer to think of it as the “Villain” or possibly the “Bandito”.

On day 2 there is barely a hint of what’s to come, but it’s early days yet..

image

I have set up a page on the Movember site for people to leave donations and where I shall post update photos so you can see what you’re getting for your money, so to speak.

THIS GREAT BIG, REALLY OBVIOUS LINK WILL TAKE YOU TO MY PAGE.

Thank you, every little helps.
