So, in my efforts to promote No Shave November and get some friends in on the action it was suggested to me that I work on finding a charity and use this bit of fun to raise some money for a good cause.
The Lance Armstrong Foundation will use the money raised by Movember to fund:
- The LIVESTRONG Young Adult Alliance program which has the goal of improving survival rates and quality of life for young adults with cancer between the ages of 15 and 40.
- Research initiatives to further understand the biology of adolescent and young adult cancers.
As a result, I created a team and we are calling it “Metal Mustaches”. This team seeks to violate the movember rules by combining No Shave November with Movember’s goals. We will grow the most awesome beards we can all month, and then on the 30th we will shave them down to the most awesome Metal Mustaches we can.
Men and Women can join the team here: Join the Metal Mustaches Team. Yes WOMEN CAN JOIN. They do not have to grow a mustache, but they can help us promote the team and raise money for Men’s Cancer awareness.
