I had never ever heard of this delightful distaff companion to "Bras for the Cause". Movember! Mo is for moustache. In November men are encouraged to raise awareness of and funds for prostate cancer research by growing moustaches. Hey! Isn't the word for hair atop the lip of a human spelled 'mustache'? So why isn't it Muvember? Turns out moustache is a perfectly acceptable spelling. OK. How does growing a moustache translate into money, you ask? Sponsorship! I would totally pay to have some of my friends grow a walrus or handlebar. Movember efforts raise money for organizations like the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, The Lance Armstrong Foundation.
