Movember is the annual excuse to grow ridiculous facial hair masquerading as a charity event. As you no doubt know, it’s a month-long moustache-growing-thon where people raise money for
prostrate prostate cancer and related men’s health issues.
James cajoled me into becoming an assistant captain for the Digital Vancouver team. I’m not sure what being assistant captain involves, but there it is. If you’re a Vancouverite and participating in Movember, feel free to join our team.
But here’s the thing. I’ve never had more than three or four days of facial hair growth my entire life. So, I thought it would be fun to grow a Novembeard for the month, and maybe shave it down to a moustache on the last day.
That’s the plan. I did the big Shave Down today, so that I can start the month with a clean slate. Here’s a bad photo, just to document Day #1.
I’ve been looking around at beards over the past few days, and asking bearded men about grooming practices and such. Should I grow a Sedin? Or maybe A Galifianakis? The latter is a tall order for 30 days, methinks.
I’m going to try to raise $1000 this month. You know what that means? If you can spare a few dollars (or, you know, more than a few) for men’s health research, please consider donating. I’d be much obliged. Plus, you know, they’re tax deductible.
On a related note, I’m also looking for facial hair grooming advice and best beard practices. All opinions welcome.
