I'm a Mo Sista!

November is known in my parts as Movember.

So what is Movember?
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives.
On Movember 1st, guys register at with a clean-shaven face. 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.

At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valour by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Part├ęs held around the world by Movember, for Movember.

The impact of Movember:

This year's theme is Movember and Sons 
Here is my mo sista page :)  I'm part of a team of mo bros who are growing some mighty fine 'staches!

I'll be sporting a 'stash at school for the month of Movember. Except during my parent - teacher interviews. I only have 15 minutes per interview and I don't want to be too distracting, lol. Mr. Drew can't avoid that with his, ahem, manly moustachio.

  (OMG I'm channeling my inner William H Macy, lol )

It's not too late to join. It's definitely not too late to donate. Please consider donating through me or my increasingly hairy team of MoBros. Just visit my page!
