The Movember organization is a foundation that seeks to expand awareness of men's health issues. Every November, men participate by starting the month clean shaven and growing a moustache (I think the stranger the better) over the course of the month to spark discussion. Donations are also accepted and donated to various outreach and research organizations
. Men's health issues such as cancer and heart disease have had a huge impact on my family. I personally participate in Movember to help raise general awareness and funds for research and other programs. Here are my October 31st and November 1st (pre and post shave pics) [gallery columns="2" ids="5047,5046"] This year, I will be participating in Movember with Printed Solid as part of Team Barnacules Nerdgasm. We will be doing the following:
- Donating $1 per sale, including our Black Friday Sale.
- Sending a 3D Printed Moustache to all who donate $50 or more to me or Team Barnacules Nerdgasm. US addresses only. If someone would like to serve as a distribution point in other countries, please contact me. All recipients of said moustache are obligated to post an appropriately goofy picture such as:
