Movember 2019 – Thank You!

Despite some challenges, it has been a great month for my Movember initiative. Overall, I raised a great amount of donations (more than last year – 158 separate donations totaling $6,802 – so far) and I hope that I have done at least as good of a job of informing people what Movember is all about.

Movember 2019

The Movember foundation focuses on awareness in three area: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mens’ mental health (which includes suicide prevention).

For eleven years I have been raising money for Movember, and for every year there are more personal examples of why it is an important charity. Each year that has passed has had more men that I know diagnosed with prostate cancer – some are friends and some are friends or relatives of friends. I have also witnessed the anguish of those who are forces to struggle with mental health issues – and, unfortunately, I also know people who have had to bear the brunt of suicide in their families.

Movember 2014

movember2014-1

Well, folks! It’s November again – and that means time for me to do something that my wife hates: grow a giant honkin’ moustache. This is, of course, for Movember. Movember started out being an initiative to raise awareness for prostate cancer. It also served as a way to raise research money. Well, over the last few years, Movember has evolved to include men’s health in general – especially mental health issues. I can’t think of a more appropriate time to shine a spotlight on that affliction, considering recent events.

So please, if you have any spare coins lying underneath your couch cushions, please donate to me and my team: just click here.

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!
