You may be walking around your city/town wondering to yourself — have I traveled back in time to 1977?
Nope! It’s Movember. Movember is a campaign to raise awareness and funds to support the fight against prostate/testicular cancer. The movement began in Australia (where the nick name for moustache is “Mo”) and is now a global force.
During month of November men around the world grow moustaches and gather sponsors to donate to the cause. It’s a fun way to generate awareness for a sometimes forgotten issue — men’s health.
Here at TheLadders, a group of 24 proud and brave men to rock the ‘stache for the entire month. So far we’ve raised $5,200 and are almost at our lofty goal of $6k. As capitan of the team, I can tell you it’s no easy task walking around for a month with a ferret on your upper lip. Mothers hide their children, girls shoot dirty looks and I keep getting offers to be a Burt Reynolds stunt double. The point is that a moustache is quite ostentatious accessory and everyone has an opinion. But, that’s the point! Every glare, every snarl, every fleeing old lady is a chance to spread the word. It’s a living billboard for men’s health, and the 24 men of TheLadders have done a smashing job of generating funds and fun to kick cancer’s butt.
We’ve even created a calendar to memorialize our efforts. A beautiful desk calendar available for only $10. Every person purchasing the calendar will not only be contributing to a worthwhile cause but, ensuring a 2012 full of daily creepiness!
