When Todd from Fearless Dollar asked me to be a part of this giveaway, I agreed because mustaches are hilarious. While I’m not able to grow one myself, thank goodness, I know there are lots of guys out there who aren’t shaving this month, and it’s all for a good cause.
Movember.com was a movement started a decade ago out of a simple idea to promote men’s health issues. It began with prostate cancer awareness and has spread to testicular cancer and mental health. If you think women are bad about discussing health issues, men are a million times worse. How many of you avoid the doctor because you don’t like to turn and cough?
I’ve also seen personally how men with mental illness are not accepted socially or even within their families. Being told to “man up” when mental illness is the cause of your problems doesn’t really do much good.
The good news is that many outcomes of these diseases can be prevented or greatly reduced with the right preventative and ongoing medical care. Hopefully, men, you’ll grow your ‘stache proudly this month and show your support for the men’s health issues supported by Movember
Have you seen how much disposable razors cost? You might not need one this month, but for later, I am co-hosting a giveaway for a $50 gift certificate to the Dollar Shave Club, what a grand idea!
