Well, it’s that time… The end of MOvember. I just want to say how thankful I am that I was able to be apart of this and NOT have to grow a mustache! The MO men have shared with me how much they raised, some thoughts on their experiences, and most importantly, whether they decided to SHAVE or KEEP their new ‘MO!
“TeamAUS has raised $30,810 as of this moment! [I had a] Great experience and would do it again. When people want to know “why the ‘stache” it’s a great lead-in to discuss something important that, otherwise, is usually only discussed in a doctor’s office.
Shave. No question. My wife and six-year-old daughter put their foot down. My three-year-old son, on the other hand, wants me to grow a beard now.”
“Our team raised $587 in total. It was a really fun experience but I didn’t anticipate it would actually be so hard to keep the moustache the whole time. Myself and another teammate attended a local photographers Movember photoshoot (in which half the proceeds also went to the charity) and got some really great and hilarious shots. I’ve attached one of me for your viewing pleasure 🙂
The photoshoot was done by the uber talented Scott Bruck and Tegan Gardner of Shadowbox Studios: http://www.shadowboxstudios.ca/
Oh, and I DEFINITELY shaved, lol.”
“Our team raised $30,810. The experience was great I got heckled by a professional boxer on twitter, and 8 year old children at the Million Mustache March in Austin. I help increase the conversation about men’s health and prostate cancer, met a ton of great people and have some amazing ideas for how to improve everything next year.
“I raised $195, our team raised $1,170. Now that we have reached our goal, we have one team member, Blake, http://us.movember.com/mospace/1067096/, who said he is going to WAX his mustache off, on camera!! It’s going to be fun to watch.”If I had better mustache growing genes, I would have enjoyed the experience a lot more, to be able to actually do something with the mustache. But overall I am very happy with the money we’ve raised and glad that I can help contribute to such a worthy cause.I may keep the facial hair for a little while, but overall I’ll be going back to clean shaven before Santa comes.”

“Hey I’m keeping it! At least for a while, I like it for now. Team legendhairy raised 1, 130 bucks for prostate cancer awareness and I can’t wait to top that numnet next year. It was the first charity program participated in and it felt really good. I met two great cancer survivors, raised awareness around campus by talking to classmates, and I’m even writing a paper about the experience for school.”
“I learned about how important it is to think about such things, went in and got checked out (everything is cool) and saw some friends and family rise to the occasion with some generous donations to our team.
Nathan managed to work out an interview with channel 6 news and my friend Kerri Kasem interviewed Nathan and I by phone for her radio podcast.
Don’t think I’ll keep the “mo” though. Orders came down from the home front that its days are numbered. Looks like Nathan and I will be going in for a proper hot shave at a barbershop. He wants to make it a quality day with his pops. I’ll take it!
