Grow a Mustache, Cure Cancer

Calling all upper lips! Time to fight cancer!
Are you inclined to grow a little facial hair for the sake of charity? You have two choices.


Calling all upper lips! It’s time to fight cancer!

I was asked by Brian Childs of Asylum.com if I’d be willing to grow a mustache to fight cancer. This was at a recent blogger meetup in NYC and, in the environment of jovial camaraderie, I said, “Why of course I would.”

So now I have to suffer the indignities (or perhaps benefits) of looking like a 70’s porn star for a couple of months. I had considered a workaround by growing a full beard or a goatee. However according to the rules (yes there are rules) that is not acceptable. No worries, this is all for a great cause; the fight against cancer.

Calling all upper lips! Do you want to participate? Are you inclined to grow a little facial hair for the sake of charity? You have two choices.

1) Mustaches vs. Cancer
Begins Monday October 5, 2009 and lasting for 56 days, proceeds go to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

Mustaches vs. Cancer is the one I’m participating in. Starting Oct 5, you can follow me and donate on my behalf here.

2) Movember
Begins Sunday November 1, 2009 and lasting thru the end of the month, proceeds go to prostate and testicular cancer foundations.

Now there are a number of ways to support these causes, not the least of which are the ‘stache growing competitions. Check out their websites for more details on all the ways you can show your support (you ladies too).

Be sure to check in with the folks at Asylum.com for regular updates, freebies and contests. Also, whether or not you participate, you’re invited to the Stache Bash on Friday, October 30, 2009 in St. Louis, MO.
