Good Morning to you all.
I am sooooo excited about this being the month of November! Yes, yes. I know – It’s #NaBlogPoMo Month!! Don’t get me wrong, I am super stoked about that…
Whaaaat!? … being able to hob-nob with all of the fabulousness in one divine blogosphere community…. can you say
‘FAB – U- LOUSSSSS‘?!
Well it seems that November is the chosen month for many a celebration. I think that I know which one is coming to mind, right about now. But. No, No. It’s not Thanksgiving (I’ll have a post about this holiday for Culinary Divahs and Food Lovers very soon).
Then ‘What can it be?’ you ask *gently scratching one’s head with a well-manicured nail*
This month is officially,
What? Oh What? is this thing called Movember?
In the words of one NYC journalist, simply put, Movember is a fundraising initiative where ….
“….. thousands of men around the world said goodbye to their clean-shaven upper lips and braced themselves for awkward stubble. Movember, a global initiative that has grow mustaches during November to raise awareness and money for men’s health, is now officially under way….”
It’s been several years since the birth of this initiative (founded by an Australian gentleman), Movember has become an official charity with global reach. The vision is to have an impact on men’s health that rivals that of breast cancer awareness.
There are Three Basic Rules:
1~ Start on November 1st clean shaven
2~ Grow your ‘Mo’ (Australian for ‘moustache’) for 30 days
3~ Raise Awareness and funds for Men’s Health
It’s that simple…
Need the backstory?
Check out this video….
Through the power of the Mo, vital funds and awareness are raised to combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges.
Will you ‘Mo’ this month?
