Movember Journal 2011 Day 7 – Things I’ve Learned in #Movember

20111106-101820.jpgThis is my 3rd Movember and I have realized that there are things I’ve learned that should be passed on to everyone trying to grow a mo or support the cause.

1) Moisturize! Find a moisturizer that you like and use it. Daily. If you’re like me and have a beard most of the time your skin isn’t going to be used to the constant shaving and it can get pretty uncomfortable. There are some great products on the market right now designed for dudes. I like the ones with some sort of cooling action. Go get you some.

2) Spread the word! Whether you raise $500 or $5 you are a big part of this campaign. When you walk down the street with your well meaning ‘mo you’re making a statement. Use your personal network to make that same statement. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Tumblr – use them all. The more you show your friends and contacts that you’re involved the more likely they are to donate. You will also be helping to raise awareness of prostate cancer – don’t overlook that part.

3) Have fun! Movember is raising money for a very serious cause, that much we know and acknowledge. However, that does not mean you can’t have fun with this thing! Get your ‘stache growing. Get your friends together. Throw a party and raise some money. Come out to the 2nd Annual Movember Karaoke Challenge (November 24, 2011 – Grindhouse Burger Bar). Style your ‘stache like your favourite 80’s athlete. Do anything you can to raise awareness and have a good time. Remember, the best accessory for your ‘Mo is a smile.
