Kickin' off Movember

Well, its day 1 in Movember and I’m off to a smooth start…

And while watching this crazy show of growing mustaches will be fun, let’s not forget there’s a serious side to this effort.  The goal isn’t merely to grow a cool handlebar, but to raise awareness and donations for Movember to pass along to charities such as Livestrong.

This month, formerly known as November, is dedicated to growing moustaches and raising awareness and funds for men’s health. Matt Cutts and myself have joined the movement and will be donating our upper lips to the cause for 30 days. Our moustaches (Mos) will spark conversations, and no doubt generate some laughs; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for cancers affecting men.

Why are we so passionate about men’s health?

  • 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
  • A man is diagnosed with prostate cancer every 2.2 minutes
  • 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime
  • 24% of men are less likely to go the doctor compared to women

Please support our efforts by making a donation at

You can even write a check payable to “Movember Foundation”, reference my name (Duane Forrester) and Registration Number 1466438 and send it to: Movember Foundation, PO Box 2726, Venice, CA 90294-2726

If you’d like to find out more about the type of work you’d be helping to fund by supporting Movember, take a look at the Programs We Fund section on the Movember website.

Thank you in advance for supporting my efforts to change the face of men’s health.
