If you see an influx in mustaches this month, that’s because it’s Movember, a global fundraising movement for men’s health awareness. Here’s how it works: Start November clean shaven, then grow a really awesome mustache that you don’t shave throughout the entire month. Movember participants also raise money for men’s health awareness by creating or joining a fundraising team at movember.com, and all funds go to prostate and testicular cancer initiatives like the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the LIVESTRONG Foundation.
Full Sail’s getting in on the action with a Movember-themed “Show Us Your ‘Stache” contest over on Connect. Just take a photo of your mustache and upload it to Connect. Girls, feel free to sport a fake mustache if you’d like. Or, get really creative and give an inanimate object a mustache: last year’s winner was a washing machine with a fake mustache on it. At the end of month, one winner will be chosen at random and will receive a $10 iTunes gift card. We’ll be posting a gallery of the best mustaches here on the blog, so be sure to check back. Good luck, and Happy Movember!
