Movember Means Being Stylish for a Good Cause

Here in the Great White North, Movember seems to have replaced the former November. Although this movement appears to be increasing in popularity in Canada (and apparently worldwide), many of you outside of Canada continue to ask me about the caterpillar crawling on my upper lip.

                                  The Mo @ the Polish Senate.                 The Mo @ UOIT Finance Competition.
The Movember campaign aims to raise awareness and funds for men's health campaigns. This is all while bringing back the stylish moustache. I've added some of the mo-pictures from previous years to this blog post.

The rules are relatively simple. On November 1st, you start off with a clean slate. On this day, one must shave off all facial hair. Next, you let your 'mo' grow, although you cannot let it connect like a goatee or touch your sideburns. From here, you look good, get attention for the cause and raise some funds along the way. Win, win, win.

Mo Sistas can also contribute by raising funds and by accepting the look for a month. Employers can contribute by participating in a gift matching program.

So with only days left, if you haven't had a chance to contribute yet, here is your chance! I'm growing with Team Tom. Here is where the money goes. Visit our page by clicking here and making a donation. 

Here is Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield with another video.
