I’m not too sure whether or not Movember has caught on outside Australia. But I have noticed that it is gaining a lot of momentum here over the past few years.
Essentially Movember is a month-long charity event where those taking part grow a moustache (or “mo’s) or attempt to grow one, and in doing so raise fund for men’s health issues, notable depression and prostate cancer.
Visit here for the official Movember site.
So here in the capital, we’re seeing a lot more badly executed facial hair this month.
I myself and sporting a fairly bushy beard at the moment, but really this is only due to my being lazy rather than wanting to join in on all the moustache fun.
I doubt I’ll actually shave it out to sport just a moustache, while the beard works well for me, just a moustache makes me look a creepy hipster child molesting weirdo.
So if none of you Northeners have heard about this yet, get your significant others to join in on it (since most of you are female and asking you to grow a moustache would be an effort in futility, and if that’s not the case for anyone, then I am truly, truly sorry) and raise some money!
