Movember

Recommended Posts

Hello guys and guyettes. I am sure a few of you will have heard of Movember, an official prostate cancer charity. I am currently growing a moustache through out November to raise awareness and cash for this very important charity. If any of you could spare even five or ten pence then that would be greatly appreciated. the link and the tash so far is below:

Nice one Adam.

 

(Can see the thought process now...shall I...

 

- Swim the Channel

- Cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats

- Run the London Marathon

- Grow a moustache

 

Hmmmm....each to their own :lol: )

Not having a go at all mate honestly....my brother has just got through a horrific ten months with bowel cancer and I seriously meant nice one....anyone doing something I take my hat off.

Was just meant to be a bit of a joke :unsure: . No offence intended.

Good luck with the tache mate!......If yours looks as sexy as mine mate, your probably going to keep it :unsure:

 

I've had a go at that swim the chennel thing MikeO -_- ....Except, it wasn't actually in the English Channel......or on my own!

 

Couple of years back my mate decided that WE! should do someting for charity, and that WE should swim the equivilant to the channel, luckily he thought two other mates wanted to do it aswell!

 

Heated swimming pool and 5.25 miles (each) later, we had raised around £1800.Certainly didn't find it easy, thing is at the times when it was getting a bit tough, the thought of the suffering of the people we were swimming for suddenly made it easier.

 

It might only be a moustache adzo9, but your doing it to help others!

Couldn't swim that far 250....impressive.

 

Someone told me a couple of days back about a dude that's cycling around the world in his front room. On an exercise bike with an atlas :unsure: . True apparently.

 

I did a parachute jump for charity a long time back....two in the end actually....and was named on the radio by Michael Aspel B) .

 

I also did a half marathon once....but that was to try and get a barmaid into bed so for my own benefit rather than anyone elses :huh: . Long story. And I failed (with the barmaid, did the run in 1'54") :( .

Louis, i always have stubble or a beard but this is my first time with a tash. If you click on the link at the top of this topic, you will notice what a tool i look. Mind you, i don't mind looking stupid for a month, as it's for a good cause.

 

My aim is to have a ron burgundyesque muzzy izzet

Let's bring this topic back up. Movember is getting close again, so time to start thinking about what Mo to sport for the best month in the calender. Last year we managed to raise touching £1000 and are looking to beat it this year.

 

Any guys fancy getting involved?

i might be doing it anyway if i cant find my razor! going to be a very hectic november anyway so why not... I cant do a moustache though otherwise i look like a french pornstar, so will have to be a bad attempt at a goatee. Am I allowed to try to tame the random patches on the cheeks? my facial hair growth isnt exactly good!

I am doing movember myself, with a few from work.. Fella in work is sorting it out like... Considering it usually takes me a decade to grow one hair, surprisingly not shaved for a couple of days and its coming along.. well.. not nicely, because i dont sort taches but as mentioned it for a valuable cause!

 

Everyone get invloved!

Does the missus not have a thing for Burt Reynolds then Mike?

 

I tried one about 10 years ago and was under strict orders from "she who must be obeyed" not to grow one again.

 

If Mikes anything like me, it will be growing with black, brown, ginger, and grey in it, amongst other colours. :P

well, 10 days in and my... how to descibe... attempt is itchin like a bitch. Ginger too it seems, even though ive got dark brown hair. Still no sponsors but plenty of people have asked and so the awareness is at least getting across!

Mine is coming along nicely, not raised much money about 30 quid so far, shite in comparison to the 300 last year. Dont be tempted to get rid because of the itch, it subsides very soon. Had to go to a work conference on monday in London, looked like a freaking tool. will post a latest pic up soon.

I have serious issues whilst growing facial hair, mine doesn't grow on my lip or chin, it grows on my neck like an ogre (Rooney) and this is not cool.

 

So i will try, probably won't get any sponsors, but i will certainly try :)

dude, i grow a ginger pornstar thingy which is truly embarrassing. However, I think these are more effective because more people come up to you and ask!

Guys!

 

Moustache Season is upon us, so I’ve decided to register for Movember and embrace the hair of the wild. I’ve pledged to cultivate a genuine 100% face grown moustache for 30 days to raise awareness and funds for men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

 

Now, I’m on the hunt for fellow trusty and fearless pioneers to join me by signing up to my team. Together we can change the face of men’s health.

 

To join my Movember team go tohttps://www.movember.com/uk/register/details/team_id/204592

 

Movember is about raising funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Did you know one man dies every hour from prostate cancer in the UK each year and more than 2,000 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer this year.

The more people we can get to become Citizens of Movember, the more lives we can impact. You can either grow a moustache as a Mo Bro, or join as a Mo Sista to show your support and help recruit other Mo growers to the team.

 

Once registered, Movember will send you all the information you need to raise funds and start raising awareness for men’s health as part of my Movember team.

 

If you’d like to find out more about the type of work you’d be helping to fund by supporting Movember, take a look at the Programmes We Fund section on the Movember website:http://uk.movember.com/about

 

Please join me at https://www.movember.com/uk/register/details/team_id/204592

 

Matt

How do you raise money by growing face fungus? I mean I can ask my workmates for sponsorship but how do you know if I just pocket the cash? What do I do with it when I have got it?
