Movember moustache
The month of November has become known more and more as "MOVEMBER" around the world.

I am proud to support my husband as he embarks on his journey to grow a moustache starting November 1st while raising money in support of Prostate Cancer. I've never been a big fan of facial hair and by the end of the month I will be happy to see it go. But it is for a good cause....

This year my husbands goal is to raise $1000

Movember started in Australia with 2 friends back in 2003 challenging 30 of their friends to see who could grow the better moustache. The rules were simple, you started November with a clean shaven face and didn't shave it off until the end of the month. After all the interest and attention from growing the moustaches, in 2004 the Movember Foundation was born and 450 men raised through their friends and family $55,000 in support of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. Last year over 1.1 million men participated and helped to raise over $146.6 million dollars.

I came across this cute little youtube showing where Movember began and its progression over the years:
