As you all may or may not have known, November was Movember.
And that meant growing a moustache! If you have never grown a moustache before, it’s tedious and looks absolutely ridiculous. That being said, I grew mine to help raise men’s awareness of Prostate Cancer & Testicular Cancer and the importance of regular check ups. As a Social Media Consultant it seemed like the obvious choice for me to do and plus I’m a philanthropic person by nature. I posted the video on my personal Facebook. Don’t worry everyone can view it, as I changed the privacy settings on it.
During the entire month of November, I proceeded to grow my moustache, much to the dismay of my fiance. Everyday I would take a photo of my ‘stache using my iPhone and an app called, Instagr.am (Download Instagr.am) and upload it to my blog entry. You can read it here. As you can see, as time went on, my moustache grew more and more epic! You can’t imagine the stares I got from people. I had people come up to me and specifically ask me if I was growing the ‘stache for Movember! How amazing is that?
I am already drawing up plans for my next moustache for Movember 2011. This time it will be even more ridiculous! I can almost guarantee it!
