for movember
I first fell in love with the moustaches made by the super genius husband and wife team of Something’s Hiding In Here a few years ago. As soon as I saw their moustaches, I knew it would be the perfect thing to help celebrate Ben’s birthday and indeed it was (see celebration here) and we loved them so much that it also made it to that year’s Christmas card.
Well, Stephen and Shauna are wanting to raise awareness for “Movember” and with that they are giving one of their moustaches to one of you!

What is Movember?

Since its humble beginnings in Melbourne Australia, Movember has grown into a global movement inspiring more than 1.1 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate. No matter the city or country, Movember strives to change established habits and attitudes men have about their health, to educate men about the health risks they face, and to act on that knowledge, thereby increasing the chances of early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment.

On November 1st, you can register at with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, 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 menโ€™s health.

In 2010, over 64,500 US Mo Bros and Mo Sistas helped spread the word! Now you can do so also.

Now, I tried to convince Ben to grow one again in November for Movember, but it really wouldn’t work too well right now because of his work. So I am just going to reminisce back to when he had his beard and would make some of his own types of ‘staches as he slowly shaved it off. My Ben is quite funny! Come on Ben, you sure you can’t grow it back?!!
So if you want to win one of their lovely moustaches, all you have to do is leave a comment in this post telling me if you have a moustached man in your life (and if you don’t, just tell me your favorite moustache from here). Those overseas are welcomed to join in! Giveaway ends Tuesday at 8am PST.
My dad has a moustache. Actually, he has had one my whole life, though one time he did shave it off and my siblings and I thought he looked mighty strange. Thankfully he grew it back.

This is such a great cause because we definitely need to make sure our men are aware of the health risks they face. Ben’s grandfather had prostate cancer (and beat it) and so did his dad, so Ben has always been very conscious about his health and makes sure to get his regular check ups. Also, until November 30th, Stephen and Shauna are donating 100% of the profits from their moustache on a stick to Movember. So here’s to a wonderful Movember of showing support for the health of all the men in our lives!
