@adoc86:  Me neither. Movember? I’ve heard of that.

Yeah we have Movember, but my FI already wears a beard (makes him look yummy). I saw many at the grocery store last week, haha ! And my FBIL is doing Movember with all his office to raise money.

Guys do it more here in Massachusetts than they did where I’m from (California). I’m going to guess you’re from somewhere in the south because you said y’all. 🙂

@CarolF:  (Unfortunately,) DH has been doing no-shave November for years.

Don’t get me wrong, I love him with a bit of stubble. But I’m not into full beard-mode.

I recently this year became aware of a new phenomenon called “Movember.” To me it basically sounds like no-shave November to raise awareness about prostate cancer.

It’s called Movember, and it’s a fundraiser for prostate cancer research.  Here is a sidelong view of my first ever effort (it’s a pencil moustache), from last week’s Tuxedo night: 

If you’re not raising money, it’s just laziness.  You can donate via my Movember page:

It’s global. It started off as an internet charity event, popularized by massive forums like Reddit.

My husband would LOVE to partake, but the Navy makes him stay cleanshaven, poor baby. 🙁

Movember… and the stache is alive and well, lol.

According to Wikipedia this all got started in Australia back in 1999… and now is done in many countries the world over to raise awareness for Men’s Health including Prostrate Cancer.

I feel it caught on a lot more (went mainstream) when the NHL Players got on board a few years back… for the Stanley Cup Hungry Beard-sporting guys it wasn’t a hard transition to make to supporting Movember.

I think it is all in good fun… and for a good cause.  So I am all in favour.
