If I can raise $300 in the next 24 hours I will keep this terrible moustache

14 Nov

Hello everyone. It’s that Movember time of year again. For those of you who are not aware, Movember is a month-long fundraiser for men’s cancer (not promotion, the defeat of). Participants are supposed to clean shave their faces on November first and then grow a moustache for then next thirty days. A proper moustache can be any size but it must be a physically separate island of upper lip facial hair not touching the sideburns or chin whiskers. The idea is that while a full-on moustache is a beautiful thing (witness the awesomeness that is Ron Swanson) the growing phase is… let’s say, awkward. And it’s this awkwardness of visibly sporting terrible facial hair that will help raise awareness and money for a good cause.

For the past two years I’ve participated in Movember, and participated well. But I always found something to be a bit lacking. I think it’s the idea that a terrible mo can only start from a clean shave. So this year I’ve decided to take my Hallowe’en costume (Alan from the Hangover Part 2) and build a terrible moustache from a full-grown beard.

I feel like an idiot

I did a quick survey and confirmed that I do indeed look ridiculous. So here is what I propose:

if I get $300 CDN in the next 24 hours (before 16:00 Ottawa time on Friday Nov 15, 2013) I will keep this terrible mo until November 30, 2013. Otherwise it gets removed.

You can donate here. And James, your move.

And one more

I think $290 would be a nice amount.

    You look disappointed in yourself for that moustache. 🙂
