A couple of dudes showed up at my show last night with Josh Grider. They were sporting mustaches. This seemed curious to us, so like the obvious introverts you all know us to be, we decided to ask them about it.
And that’s when we stumbled upon a movement that instantly captured our hearts: Movember.
I’ll keep the background history of this marvelous movement short– basically a few fellows in Australia created it as a way to raise awareness about prostate cancer. Just how is awareness raised, you ask? Well, it’s raised by sporting that classic of all facial hair styles, The ‘Stache.
They call them ‘Mo’s. I’m trying to get used to that. I’ve always gone with ‘stache, but ‘stache can’t easily be worked into the name of a month… but I digress.
So, Josh and I signed up, and trimmed away. The end result can be seen in the photo above.
Movember doesn’t only raise awareness, but it also raises money for two charitable organizations: The Prostate Cancer Foundation and Livestrong.
We’ve committed to these ‘staches (‘Mo’s… ‘Mo’s… working on this….) for the entire month (and really, who wouldn’t? look at how SWEET it looks!!), and we hope that you’ll commit a little bit of cash to our quest to ‘stache out prostate cancer one ‘mo at a time.
Thanks for your time, and your support. We’ll see you out there on the road.
Sporting our ‘Mo’s.
