My dad had a moustache for most of my childhood. These days he has gone Euro-villain and has a goatee, but for me a ‘tache always reminds me of my dad. When I shaved my beard off last year I left a ‘tache to see what I looked like and found myself staring at my dad in the mirror. SCARY! I shaved it off 30 seconds later!
To cut a long story short, it’s Movember time again and if you don’t know what that is it’s when men (and oddly women) grow a moustache during the month of November to support The Prostate Cancer Charity. A very worthy cause as my beloved Grandfather Daniel died from it back in 2001.
So, despite the worry that I will end up looking like Ron Jeremy or Ron Burgandy for a whole month I am going to grow a ‘tache for charity and encourage as many of you as possible to do the same!! I have started a team on the official website, so please sign up and join this important cause! Let’s have the biggest and best team of the lot!! Even if you are a woman, join up…be creative! If you don’t want to or can’t grow one then please sponsor us!
To add some fun to this I will be taking photos and video of myself every day, to make a film of my ‘tache growing and you should all do something creative too! Let us completely overwhelm them with epic films of our moustaches!! No prize for best video, just the satisfaction of helping a good cause and having some fun at it. Despite the fact you could well look totally ridiculous for a whole month, which I certainly will! Any chance of a any female finding me slightly attractive over the next month is a big no no!
I have been asked to make 2 videos a week documenting this for Bravo TV in the UK. I want to include your footage too so PLEASE sign up and film yourselves! Below is the link to what I have made so far, simply click on the image…
My goal is to £10,000 for the Prostate Cancer Charity. I am sure if everyone who reads this donates a small amount or better still joins and donates then we can easily do it!
Here is me with a moustache thanks to iphone app ‘stachetastic!
