|Day 15 is the turning point in more ways than one.
It's kind of weird, because I've tried about every look there is, including rat tail, mohawk, shaggy, bowl, high and tight, dyed (blue, red, black), etc. However, the moustache is right up there with the mullet in fashions I swore I'd never try. So, kids, never say never.
I am on Day 16, but instead of counting up, I find myself counting down: Two weeks until I can shave it off.
Here's the thing: I love growing beards. However, when I look at the site for Novembeard, it just looks like a bunch of random guys taking pics of themselves. (Not at all like what I'm doing here.) There doesn't appear to be any purpose behind the whole thing.
Meanwhile, Movember has a cause: Supporting Prostate Cancer And Other Male Cancer Iniatives. More than just a reason to grow a moustache, Movember is about trying to get men to take their health seriously--and I'm not talking exercise, but getting annual check-ups (something even this guy needs to do better).
I prefer beards, but even I realize that sometimes the cause is more important than my own preferences in facial hair. If you believe in male health, I encourage you to show your support by rating my page and leaving a message.

Plus, anyone who donates $20 or more to my effort will be entered for a chance to win a care package that includes both my poetry chapbooks and more. Click here to learn more about that offer.
Meanwhile, support your fellow men and their health--whether they have a moustache or not.
