It’s Mo time!

Hurrah! Halloween’s out the way. No more people looking silly with a view to getting something out of you. Well, almost.

Yes, it’s the eleventh month of the year which means it’s time for me to transform my face into a mobile advert for men’s health. The well being of adult males, that is, not the magazine with half-naked dudes on the front. I’m embarking on Movember 2013.

In 2011 I went for the Machete look and last year I went all a bit D’Artagnan. I was pleased with the end product both times – I looked suitably silly – but they were a faff to shave around every day so I’m going to grow an altogether more simple mo this time.

As Anchorman 2 is out next month, I’m aiming for a Ron Burgundy tribute ‘tache. It’ll probably end up looking like an adolescent’s bum-fluff-like first attempt at nurturing facial hair, but I’m not bothered about looking daft if I can raise awareness and a few quid too.

This year I’m joining my fellow Love All Dads Podcast regulars. Well most of them; Dad Who Blogs is refusing. Feel free to go and tell him off on his blog – in a team of dads.

We say it’s a team of dads, but anyone is welcome to join us – it doesn’t matter if you can’t grow a mo. I’m sure the organisers aren’t going to turn down funds if you raise them in another creative way and spreading the word is just as important.

If you want to sponsor me, you can do so on my Mo Space page. Alternatively, you can donate to the team as a whole.

In return I’ll post pictures of my progress on my Mo Space page and Twitter, so you can literally laugh at my face.

      Cheers Sarah! Afraid I won’t be going to Blogfest – having a family day related to my advancing years. Maybe next year though – if they move it to accommodate me! 😉

    I did do Movember back in 2009 but am worried that it might scare our six month old son. We had him dressed up in his glow in the dark skeleton baby grow for Halloween recently and took him to the door when the first trick or treaters came, but he instantly burst out crying!

      Ha! That’s fair enough. You never know what’s going to set them off – I remember Dylan getting really quite upset by cartoon snails at that age!
