This post is part ‘spread the word’ and part ‘shameless promotion’.

First, in case you hadn’t noticed, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Second, on October 13th, I’m doing the Light the Night Walk in association with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I’m walking with the CFI-DC Team. Shameless promotion #1: if you’d like to donate to support the cause, my donation page is here.

If you’ve checked Freshly Pressed, recently, you may have come across A Clown on Fire’s Bloggers for Movember post. Movember is a movement that brings awareness, education, and support to men’s health issues, especially prostate cancer. Shameless promotion #2: You can find my Movember page here (do not donate there, yet, as I am assuming the Bloggers for Movember will become a team). If you’re interested or want more info, check out the blog post or the facebook page.

During the month of November, I will be growing my moustache. I will be posting my moustache progress as well as posts about men’s health (both physical and mental).  One of the things I love about Movemeber is that it plays into one of my physical strengths: facial hair. I had shave-worthy facial hair when I was 10 years old. I am currently 31, so I have been shaving for over 2/3s of my life. I kept a moustache/goatee combo for a good number of years. These days, I tend to have stubble, but I rarely grow out the facial hair beyond that. Should be fun.
