A previous years effort

A previous years effort

Yes it is indeed that hairy time of year again, Movember, and I am again going to do my bit for the cause. Keep an eye out for those moustaches, and feel free to let me know how I ought to style mine over the next couple of weeks, and no shaving it off is not a styling option.

I actually love a bit of facial hair, and do not mind how silly I look, so this year I have decided to make it more of a challenge for myself and I am not only growing a Mo but I have signed up to Move in Movember too. This requires doing some form of physical activity every day for the month of November, and that really will be a challenge for me, given my aversion to physical activity of any kind (expect tearing it up on the dance floor).

As with every year the Mo has a job to do, those growing the Mo will also be raising vital funds which will be used to make a global contribution to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. This ambition underpins everything the Movember team does. Since 2003, they have raised $685 million and funded over 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity

If you would like to sponsor me you can do so here: http://mobro.co/macarthursmutterings

As well as keep up to date with the daily move activity that I will be doing.

I did a Super Mario impression all for a good cause

December 1, 2014

Movember14I did it, I let the Mo grow for the 30 days of Movember and yes I am clean shaven now for those of you that were keen to see the back of my tash.

I have always wanted to grow a beard, but alas don’t have the required hair follicles so I have not been able to take advantage of the still current fashion for facial hair, so Movember if the closes I get…

Movember is a great way to grow a moustache while growing funds for charity and you get to do it every year. It raises both funds and awareness for men’s health.  

Mine was one of  millions of moustaches around the world that were used to scare small children and reminding us that porn stars of the 1970’s were real men with real hair (unlike the shaved and waxed all over men of porn today, allegedly, I never watch the stuff).

I took part together with a couple of work mates to form The Jigsaw Crumb Catchers team and it is not too late to sponsor us, you can do so here.

And to all those that have already sponsored me a very big THANK YOU

Movember is surely the sexiest month of the year…

moJust 10 days to go before men all over the world let their facial hair grow for 30 hair-raising days and it is all for a very good cause, yes Movember is almost upon us. Mine will be one of  millions of moustaches around the world that will be scaring small children and reminding us that porn stars of the 1970’s were real men with real hair (unlike the shaved and waxed all over men of porn today, allegedly, I never watch the stuff), this picture is from my last effort.

But it is not all just for a spot of office ridicule, no the Mo has a job to do, those growing the Mo will also be raising vital funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health. In 2012, over 1.1 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas around the world joined the movement, raising AUS $141.5 million. I have joined together with a few work mates to form The Jigsaw Crumb Catchers team and if you would like to sponsor us you can do so here:

I have written about my love of facial hair and Movember before, but for those of you that don’t know, on the 1st of Movember we start off with a clean-shaven face start our Mo growing journey. Then for the entire month, we become walking, talking billboards for 30 days. Through our growing efforts we raise awareness for the often ignored issues of men’s health, by prompting conversations wherever we go, I will get strangers talking about it, trust me.

Movember’s not just for men. The women of Movember are known as Mo Sistas. They play a vital role in the success of Movember by supporting and encouraging the men in their life to get involved. Mo Sistas also get involved by signing up at Movember.com, and participate by raising funds and awareness themselves.
