Gaining Late 'Mo' Mentum

Happy Saturday Readers.  For various reasons (mainly timing) I didn't initially participate in Movember this year.  Movember is a fundraiser where men all over the world grow their mustaches and other facial hair to raise awareness and funds to support men's health issues, such as prostate cancer.

However, while I am nearly always clean shaven, I have been growing my own facial hair since the beginning of the month and have decided to lend my face to the Movember cause for the rest of the 11th month.

That being said, I have joined the Dad 2.0 / Man of the House / NYC Dads Group / DadCentric / DadLabs/ team (I wasn't invited, but just crashed the party) and even created my own Movember page to accept donations to this worthy cause.  

Heck, I don't care if you donate to the team directly, or to me specifically, but if any of you decide to spare even a few of your hard earned cash dollars to this cause because I put myself out here on display, then it will be well worth the effort.

So, without further adieu, here is what my face can accomplish in about 2 weeks time when it gets serious.

Soon, food will surely find a home in there.
 Like I said, I would greatly appreciate any support you can give.  Either in the way of donations to the Movember cause, or even comments letting me know that you are familiarizing yourself more with men's health issues and the programs Movember raised funds go to support.

Have a good weekend all.  I will post more Seattledad Movember updates later in the month.

It's a great cause, no doubt. I remember from my time in London when, guys from our dad’s playgroup would grow a little facial hair for charity. What a wonderful way to shine a light on men's health.

@Diplo_Daddy It sure is. Seems like a LOT of guys are participating. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment here.
