Oct.30.11 | Movember
Movember is almost here. It’s my third year participating and my third year as team captain of The Movemberists. Last year we raised $6900 for prostate cancer research—that’s awesome. This year I’ve been training hard and you can see the fruits of my efforts in the picture above.
Movember rules mandate that I start Movember 1st clean shaven. That seems like a waste of a lot of awesome curly moustachery. So to kick Movember off I’m giving everyone a chance to own this fine piece of tonsorial work and do what you want with my mug: call it Fantasy Barber.
That’s right: you control the destiny of my moustache and choose how I shave on October 31st.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Make a Movember donation before noon (12pmEST) on October 31st.
- Note the style or pattern you’d like me to shave my moustache into in your donation comment. The sky is the limit. Be creative.
- If you’re the largest donation I will shave my moustache in the manner of your choosing, photograph it, and wear it as such as I conduct my daily business until Movember 1st when I shear everything off.
- In the event of a tie bid: Moustache Thunderdome!!
Have fun and happy bidding!
Your humble moustache servant I remain,
ps. There’s still time to join the team!
12pm has arrived and after a final tally Kim Horne is my moustache benefactor. Much to my relief she has requested the curly, Belgian stylings of Hercule Poirot rather than a more embarrassing Hitler or Passed-out-at-a-party-and-had-half-his-moustache-shaved-off-guy. I’ll will do my best to make both Kim and the esteemed detective proud. Off to shave. Pics to follow!
A big thanks to everybody who helped spread the word and donated—we raised $180 to get Movember started with style. The best part: we’ve got a whole month to raise even more.
I did my best with what I had and frankly, I am lacking in Mr. Suchet’s tonsorial prowess. The amount of moustache wax holding this together is truly terrifying and I can’t say I’m looking forward to picking up my son while done up as such.
Thanks again to Kim and everyone else who donated! Olde timey photoeffect to disguise lo-res camera phone snap.
