Folks, it's been a while since I've checked in with you all. And one of the reasons for my absence has been this thing called "Movember" (click here to learn more, or here to see all my previous Movember adventures!). I've been asked to chair the Halifax Committee for this year's campaign to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer research. Along with a fantastic team of volunteers, this year's efforts in Halifax (indeed, in the world) is going to break all previous records. So far we've had TV time, two radio stations are involved, and we've surpassed our expectations in terms of registrations for the city.
I have the same high hopes for my own moustache, only I think that it's going to be tough to make major follicular improvements with the genes I've been given!
My own fundraising goals are very ambitious this year: $2,000 in personally collected donations. So far I'm off to a good start with over $100, but if you have the ability to donate to this very worthy cause, I would much appreciate it.
To make a donation (you can use a credit card! and get a tax receipt!), go here: http://ca.movember.com/mospace/3289/ and click the "Donate to me" link. If you'd like to go another route, you can paypal me and I'll make sure you get your receipt. Email or leave a comment and we'll work it out.
For those of you who've supported me in the past, I thank you. For those who've meant to donate but haven't done so, now is your chance :)
Oh, and I promise to post pictures again...who doesn't like to see my attempts at growing the Mo!
So far it all looks like the "before" shot:
(All my daily pics can be seen here: http://ca.movember.com/mospace/3289/ ) Don't forget to donate when you visit ;)
