A Worthy Moment Off-Topic: Movember

Depending on where you are in the world you may or you may not have heard of the greatness that is Movember. For those who haven't, it is summed up best by the guys who run Movember themselves:

WHAT IS MOVEMBER?

Movember (the month formerly known as November) is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men's health.

At the start of Movember guys register with a clean shaven face. The Movember participants, known as Mo Bros, have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their Mo, raising money along the way to benefit men's health - specifically prostate cancer and depression in men.

Funds are committed to our men’s health partners - the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, beyondblue: the national depression initiative and the Movember Foundation. Together, the three channels work to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world class programs in the fields of research, education, support, and awareness.

As is plain to see, it is a very worth cause and this is my third year running of taking part—please consider visiting my MoSpace and donating some money to help out.

Thank you! Regular programming shall resume shortly!
