Movember is when moustaches invade November in the name of awareness for and fundraising to fight prostate cancer. There's some disagreement about when and where Movember began, but in a nutshell it began 7-11 years ago in Australia (either Adelaide or Melbourne, we aren't sure). I first got wind of it while studying in Sydney and interning for the Cancer Council Australia. Last year US participants raised $7.5 million to fight prostate cancer through orgs like LIVESTRONG and the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

Get ready for more of the same...and then some
Led by their fearless moustache growing Movember captain Ross, the GFD Mo-Bros are 19 strong for their inaugural year.
And it's a very serious effort, complete with email heckling, posters, business cards and maybe a moustache growth flip book at the end.
If you would like to support Ross and the GFD Mo-Bros, you can donate to him online right here.
Check his "Mo-Space" and my blog throughout Movember for updated pics of the 'stache. It's bound to be epic.
