Oh yes, it is that time. While I have been slow to catch back up to work and life after an amazing holiday, one thing I made sure not to miss was the start of Movember. The idea behind the gimmick is to raise awareness and money for men’s health. The rules are pretty easy, be clean shaven on November 1, and then grow a mustache for the next 30 days. Combinations with other forms of facial hair are technically against the rules, but I’d let it slide if you wished to join the effort. I have been able to convince seven other friends here in Oxford to join me on my campaign for silly facial hair for a good cause, and we have an official Movember team. This also means that we are officially soliciting donations to the cause.
Please click here to find out more about our team and to donate if you feel so inclined. We have already raised around £60, and it is only the 3rd of November, so plenty of time to reach our goal of £150. Please let me know if you are interested in joining the team (it isn’t too late), or don’t feel comfortable donating online.
I am really looking forward to a fun month with some friends, even if people laugh at our expense. After all, we are donating our faces for a good cause.
