Movember - raising awareness and money

Most of the time, Cruftbox doesn't ask much from you, the Loyal Cruftbox Readers, but today I am.

This month is Movember, a month where I am growing a mustache to help raise money for Prostate Cancer research. Just last month, I had the opportunity to have my prostate tested during my yearly physical.

In Movember, men grow mustaches to help raise money and awareness about Prostate Cancer, a major problem for men. All donations during Movember go to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, a non-profit (meaning tax deductible!) organization.

You can visit my MoSpace here.

I know these aren't the easiest financial times for anyone, but I am asking you to donate a little money to help. Every little bit helps. I've have been writing Cruftbox since January 2000, that's almost 9 years of Cruft for your to peruse. Donating $9 if you enjoy Cruftbox and my fine new mustache would be fantastic. Of course, feel free to donate more if you want!

The donation page is here. Please consider making a small donation now.

Here are some photos of the progress of the facial hair.

Are you allowed to trim the sides of your moustache? If you are, i think you ought to do so. Does this mean you will still have it on Thanksgiving?

Wow, that is a pretty terrible look for you. I mean, you are far too handsome a man to cover your face with hair. A true sign of commitment to a cause.

I may donate, but I anticipate Mobama taking my discretionary income.

This is great thing you are doing.I have prostate cancer and any man can get terrible cancer. I had my Surgery 6 months ago and my PSA still undetectable. I was only 44 years old but I am doing great now
