MOVEMBER

I have been actively growing a moustache for the last month.

You may have wondered why i did this, having been placed directly in the firing line for ridicule and general pointing and laughing from co-workers, friends & family, shop attendants , bus drivers, etc.

Well, it was all for a good cause that i’m sure most of you have heard about by now – Movember.

Movember is a charity drive for the month of November , encouraging men all over the world to grow a Mo’ and raise funds for prostate cancer research.

1 in 10 men in the western hemisphere will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some stage in their lives.

Currently, there are 6,618 men registered in Ireland taking part, and the money raised is currently running at 489,196 euro, a phenomenal response.

Here comes the ask for money part . . .

If you would like to make a donation please click here.

You can donate with your laser card and it takes about a minute to fill out the donation form.

 All funds raised go to the The Irish Cancer Society and their Men’s Health programme Action Prostate Cancer (ACP) . You can read more on that here.

 Also, if you haven’t got your fill of pointing/laughing/ridiculing, the mo’s last day (sniffle) will be Monday .

And for no reason other than some light entertainment of a friday, here are some pictures of well known/comedy moustaches .
