The things we do for charity. Actually, it's for fun as well. I got tempted into joining a group at work into participating in "Movember". What the heck is it? It is basically growing a Mo-ustache during the month of November and having people sponsor you. The rules are:

Once registered each Mo Bro start 1 November with a clean shaven face.
Then, for the entire month of Movember each Mo Bro must grow and groom a moustache according to these rules:
01 - You don’t talk about Movember outside of the month.
02 - Movember runs for 30 days. No more.
03 - There is to be no joining of the Mo to side burns—That’s a beard.
04 - There is to be no joining of the handlebars—That’s a goatie.
05 - A small complimentary growth under the bottom lip is allowed (aka a tickler).
06 - You must remain clean shaven apart from your Mo for the entire 30 days.

But wait, there's more..
Failure to conform to any of those rules may, at the absolute discretion of the Movember Committee result in instant blacklisting from further participation in Movember and entry to the Gala Parté. The Movember Committee accepts no responsibility for lost jobs, lost girlfriends/boyfriends, rashes to you or your partner or any other such
mishaps caused by a Movember Mo.
I used to sport a goatee during some of my college months, so it shouldn't be unknown territory. My wife also kindly granted her permission (she did seem very amused).

As you can probably tell, it's very 'serious'. I haven't shaved my upper lip region for 7 days now. I'll be keeping the progress (including photos) report at my Mo-Log. Now, calling all, of kind and generous inclination - feel free to sponsor my 'Mo', by clicking on the badge below. All proceeds go to the Prostrate Cancer Foundation of New Zealand. Thanks
