    Beard and Mustache For Chairity

    Join the Beard and Mustache Crowd and be Charitable at the Same Time

    Men worldwide are joining forces to raise money for men’s health initiatives by growing a beard or mustache for a month. Men will be encouraged to seek sponsorships, in November its mustaches in a movement called Movember and in December men will be encouraged to grow their beards out in a movement called Decembeard.

    In 2010, over 64,500 men participated and got on board, raising $7.5 million for Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation. With the additional goals of changing established habits and attitudes men have about their health, to educate men about the health risks they face, and to act on that knowledge. Discussing medications like prostagenix as well as radical medical procedures keeps men in the know and pinpoints what they should be looking. Talking about it really can save lives.

    I for one will be cheering my brethren on to come and join those of us who wear proudly wear a beard or mustache. In my case the last time a razor touched my skin was in 1976. Of course I’m biased, but I think clean-shaven men are boring looking, they all look the same.

    Throughout history a well-groomed beard or mustache and/or beard has been a mark of class and distinction. The clean-shaven fashion trends ebb and flow, but beards and mustaches always return. But in the twentieth century beards and mustaches fell out of style. Men all started looking alike just at the time when women where going the opposite direction. Women are way ahead of men in having the courage to change things up and experiment from time to time.

    Could it be that we are seeing the beginnings of another movement back towards beards and mustaches? Barb Quinn seem to think so, she recently wrote a good article Beard and Mustache Styles are Back! in which she sees a definite trend in the celebrities. The recent trend toward the 5 o’clock shadow scruffy look bodes well for men who are tired of the clean-shaven look and just maybe will start are march toward the return of look of manliness. Please help me urge men everywhere to jump on the Movember band wagon.
