Andrew is participating in Movember this year! What’s Movember, you ask?

From their site,

“During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo’s, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. Once registered at, men start Movember 1st clean shaven. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts. Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.”

Movember is now a worldwide movement with millions “work(ing) to change established habits and attitudes men have about their health, to educate men about the health risks they face, and to act on that knowledge, thereby increasing the chances of early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment.”

I can’t even begin to describe how excited Andrew is to be participating this year! He’s wanted to grow a moustache for years and I’ve been fighting it since day one. But I guess this is a moustache for a good cause.  So here we go. A 30 day moustache party.

I’m taking a picture every day to document this never-going-to-happen-again occasion. So check in frequently to track his progress. And since Movember will coincide with Thanksgiving, look for a moustache coming to a table near you!

P.S. It’s only day two so if you wanted to jump on board, it’s not too late!
