Movember - Introduction & Progress Pics

This year I've decided to participate in Movember (http://mobro.co/jasondmckay). You start the month cleanly shaven. For the rest of the month, you only grow a mustache. My lovely girlfriend told me that she didn't want to see me all month because of this. I'm sorry, but its for a good cause, men's cancers. If you can spare a few bucks, I'd really appreciate a donation to this cause by clicking on the link above. You can also check my progress on that page and make sure I'm doing my job. :-)

Read below for the details and the story behind it, and even a link for more information on this worldwide organization.


Day 1 - No facial hair. It's been a long time since that baby face has been around.
Day 4 - Slight hint of hair in the stach region.
Day 8 - It's definitely coming in. This is where it gets fun.

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo’s, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.

The Movember Effect: Awareness & Education, Survivorship, Research
The funds raised in the US support prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. The funds raised are directed to programs run directly by Movember and our men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Together, the three channels work together to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in line with our strategic goals in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research.
