What’s this on my lip? Nothing less than the unfettered whiskers of a man determined (if not a little deranged).
Yep. For the month of November, I’ve pledged — along with the other men in our family and hundreds of thousands of others worldwide — to grow a “mo.”
In case you don’t know, “mo” is slang in Australia for a mustache.
Now, I’ve never been to Australia. But the cause behind this is so good, that doesn’t make a fizzlewob of difference.
See, it turns out, that “mo” growers everywhere… yours truly included… are risking mockery and taking donations, all in the name of research in the fight against prostate cancer.
Sure, there are plenty of other worthy causes.
But this one sits close to home.
One out of every six men will get diagnosed with prostate cancer. One of them is my father, who right now is battling the later stages of this disease.
Nonetheless, he’s rallied to grow a November “mo” of his own (“It’s like grass,” says my four-year old daughter).
And he’s inspired us to get in on the cause too.
There’s nothing saying you can’t also play along.
Just go here and either join up or donate…
Hope to see your name on the list!
