It Takes a Village…

…to grow a moustache this big.

Little J asks me about doing “the serious photo” in early October. That’s commitment!

All kidding aside, our humble team of 8 raised over $6K to support Movember Canada – a feat which could not have been achieved without your donations. I wish that I could write each and every one of you your own personalized “thank you” note, but I can’t. So I’d like to thank you here for all of your kindness in donating to what I believe is a worthy cause.

I’m hoping that next year we can raise even more!

Not-So-Secret Stache

So, I am currently in the midst of Movember. It is a great cause and I encourage you to back me or my team! If not us – then back someone! Prostate cancer is definitely no joke.

Please check out my Mo Space page here and donate something, if you can! I am trying to keep it updated every few days and I am going for an epic stache!

Moustache May Be Bigger Than Appears

Last year I participated in Movember, a fundraiser for Prostate Cancer research and awareness.

Some friends from work and I raised a bit of scratch for the cause, and our company kicked in some dollars for the charity as well. Due to a communication glitch, they kicked in the dollars into my net, thus crediting me with the extra moolah; due to this I was rocketed to platinum status on the Movember site.

While I didn’t use my own name for the certificate and credit online, I did get a prize sent to me: A tankard. Now, I don’t know about you, but due to reading a lot of sci-fi/fantasy novels, my idea of a tankard was something big….



A massive tankard?

Of course, to my surprise, the box was quite small, and the following is a reference photo…



No. Not really massive.

I’m not complaining. This thing is pretty awesome and I’m very proud to have won it. It just goes to show that sometimes the associations with certain words in your mind can lead to hilarious expectations.

We will be doing this event again this year. Hopefully y’all will sponsor us!
