Well folks, we are halfway through the mustachioed month of Movember (formerly known as November), where guys worldwide grow a ‘lil facial hair under their nose and raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and prevention.
A daring group of Organic gentleman are participating this year. We’ve checked in with a few of them for a mid-month status report:
“I regularly grow huge beards and shave them into mustaches, but have never gone from zero to mustache. My fiancée is less than thrilled, as it’s taken forever to get past the “total creep” phase. My mustache inspiration would have to be Duke Silver.” (editor’s note: For non-“Parks and Recreation” fans: look him up, it’s great)
Usually so baby-faced, Dustin is a surprise mustache champ. He’s joined the team as a reminder to himself and other men that they should be more actively involved in taking care of their health and well-being.
Nick is a Movember veteran. This is the South Africa native’s 4th year participating. He definitely considers the ‘stache a conversation starter for men’s health. “Keeping it lighthearted is important. If I look idiotic for a month and can raise funds for a great cause, then it really is pretty easy!” (editor’s note: inspired by Selleck Waterfall Sandwich)
