Movember Update IV: The Final Moustache

   Posted by: admin   in Charity

So here it is, in all its glory!  My moustache on the last morning of Movember:  The final moustache!

Movember 30th

The Final Moustache

As you read this post, I will be moustache free since it’s now December 1st.  This post was actually written on November 29th, while on a plane from Dallas to Toronto.  I was able to check the internet, log in and go over all my work emails and write this blog post, all while flying back home.  Technology has come a long way and always continues to amaze.

So why talk about technology in a blog post about Movember?  Well, the money being donated to prostate cancer research is to help advance technology in the search of a cure for cancer.  It is my honest belief that once any one type cancer is defeated (a cure is found), many other cancers will be conquered as well (if not all).  While being able to go online while flying is pretty neat, more of our money and efforts should be towards our health.  The internet is a neat tool, but it’s useless if we aren’t around to use it.  Events like Movember are great because they bring awareness to such issues.

Will I do this again next year?  Considering I will just have come home from a 500 mile journey through Ireland and Scotland to raise money for cancer research, I think I’m entitled to a year off.  I can’t say I’ll never do it again though.

This month has also taught me that looks matter in the real world quite a bit.  While my friends and people at work didn’t treat me too differently (sure, many more jokes were made about my face), strangers kept their distance a lot more this month. Before growing the moustache, I had grown a beard, and I felt the complete opposite.  I felt strangers were being more friendly towards me, and I returned the favour.

So as Movember comes to a close, I would like to thank everyone who participated and everyone who donated money to a wonderful cause.  Let’s make sure we conquer cancer in our lifetime!
