Movember heads up!

Bearded, bearded, far and wide! Lend me your 'staches!

For those of you who have participated before, you probably know what time of year is fast approaching. Movember! The month where shaving is prohibited and the hair flows like waterfalls! Classy, sexy, well-groomed waterfalls, we're hoping. ;)>

We know we're mentioning it a whole month early, but for all of you artists out there, many of your communities tend to host art shows based on the beard and its glory around this time; though as most art galleries do, the dates to enter pieces are a few weeks before the actual gallery is set. It's all for a fantastic cause, if we do say so ourselves:

"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.



On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com 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 valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Part├ęs held around the world by Movember, for Movember." - to read more about Movember, here's their official site: http://us.movember.com/
