Ah, autumn.  The NFL and NHL are in full swing, the leaves are falling, the temperature is dropping, the clocks are changing and the moustaches are growing.

That’s right, it’s MOVEMBER, the annual worldwide charity event where men everywhere grow moustaches and raise money to promote men’s health.  It’s like breast cancer awareness month without the boobs.  Here’s some info from the official site:

Men start Movember 1st clean shaven. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

The funds raised in the US support prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. The funds raised are directed to programs run directly by Movember and our men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

In 2010, over 64,500 US Mo Bros and Mo Sistas got on board, raising $7.5 million USD.

 

We here at Cosby Sweaters are all about giving back and have decided to join the MOvement.  For the rest of Movember, Big Skeezy (and some other staffers) will be growing their moustaches, which will catch stray food and attract women everywhere.  As with most everything we get ourselves into, we’ll be updating you along the way.

We’ve also opened the door so you and your friends can donate or even join the CS team – Team Dirty Cosby Sweaters !!

It’s like a Dirty Sanchez (don’t look that up) only it’s for charity and not nearly as messy.  Here are the official Movember rules:

1.  Each Mo Bro must start Nov. 1 with a clean-shaven face.

2. For the entire month of November, each Mo Bro must grow and groom a moustache.

3.  There is to be no joining of the moustache to the sideburns (that’s considered a beard).

4.  There is to be no joining of the handlebars to the chin (that’s considered a goatee).

5.  Each Mo Bro must conduct himself like a true country gentleman.

You can visit Big Skeezy’s page, donate and join the team here.

Let’s do this right, folks, and really get into this.  As you can see, I’ve already started:
