Movember...where moustaches join the fight against cancer

Hey gang!

This Movember I’ve decided to donate my face to raising awareness about cancers that affect men. My commitment is the growth of a moustache for the entire month of Movember, which I know will generate conversation, controversy and laughter (really I am thinking that it will cause more laughter than anything).

I’m doing this because:

• 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in his lifetime (those are crappy odds…this means everyone will be affected by it at some point in their lives.)

• 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime (I don’t want to do the math…but those aren’t good odds either)

This is a cause that I feel passionately about, for many reasons, and I’m asking you to support my efforts by making a donation to support the great work of the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG. To help, you can either:

- Click this link and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account

- Write a check payable to Movember, referencing my name or Registration Number 709344 and mailing it to: Movember, PO Box 2726, Venice, CA 90294-2726

The money raised will help make a tangible difference to the lives of others, through the world’s most promising prostate cancer research and LIVESTRONG’s programs that support young adults and their families battling and surviving cancer.

For more details on how the funds raised from previous campaigns have been used and the impact Movember is having please visit

I know that times are tough, but I really want my boys to grow up in a world where we have stopped cancer in its tracks, so I greatly appreciate any support you can give…even words of encouragement (moustache growing is not my forte) will help.

Remember to keep checking my mospace page for my (likely sad yet hilarious) attempt at a moustache (why couldn't this have been a goatee contest? I would have totally won that)
Thanks again!
