Part of my persona and my “brand” is a hairy upper lip. In the past 31 years, I have only been clean shaven for a few days in Movember 2009. The occasion for that loss of mustache event was an opportunity to bring attention to men’s health issues by helping the Movember campaign to raise money for prostate and testicular cancer research.
The campaign is designed to highlight efforts to work on these twin killers by having thousands to millions of fundraisers growing mustaches. After a month of happily watching NFL players wear pink, I think it would be kind of fun to see the whole league growing mustaches together.
Of course, since I nearly always have a mustache, the only way I can join the effort is to shave the one I have and start anew. Since some of you have commented over time about the hairy upper lip that you see every time you visit Atomic Insights, I am hoping that you will be moved to visit my Movember page and make a generous donation to help the cause.
Aside: I do not ask you for much here. There are no ads and not even a “donate” button. This is one of the exceptions to that rule. I am asking nicely for you to help support an important cause. End Aside.
Here is that Movember page URL one more time – http://mobro.co/rodadams
