So…this won’t come as a surprise to any regular readers, but I think facial hair on men is pretty sexy. Remember Macho Week? I particularly like muttonchops. And big, droopy mustaches. No, seriously.
So the hubs–who is an on-again, off-again facial hair guy, which is just peachy with me–has been trying for some time to interest the guys he works with in growing mustaches together, or doing some fun facial hair thing.
And he forwarded this to me this morning, and I got all excited.
TAH-DAH! IT’S MOVEMBER!
It’s a month-long mustache-growing event, for men’s health charities, and I think it’s AWESOME. Seriously, there’s breast cancer and cervical cancer and uterine cancer awareness EVERYWHERE, but very little attention is paid to specific men-only cancers like prostate or testicular cancer.
Movember is an international event; each country has its own charity sponsors (they’re listed on each country’s page there.)
So guys…here’s your chance! Grow that Fu Manchu or droopy handlebar! Grow those muttonchops! Grow the “Santa” or the “Anton LaVey”! It’s fun! It’s awesome! It’s for charity!
Go sign up at the Movember website, seriously. Get your offices involved, or your manfriends.
And please, send me pictures. I’ll post them on the blog if you want–that could be fun, huh? And I’ll give something away. We’ll do, say, a Movember contes, and we’ll put up pics of your facial hair, and vote or I’ll pick a winner, and the winner gets an ARC or my entire ebook collection or something spiffy like that. What do you say?
Are you macho enough, my beloved manfriends?
