I’ve had a moustache since I was 18 years old. I shaved it off only once because I had to work in Iraq and the rules required me to be clean shaven. On November 1st, I shaved off my moustache for the second time. This time, it had nothing to do with working in a foreign country. This time I did it to save men’s lives.

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces. With their Mo’s, these men raise vital awareness and funds for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.

Watch this video for more details on Movember:

I’m participating in Movember because my family has been affected by prostate cancer and I don’t want anyone else to lose a loved one prematurely. I encourage every man to schedule an annual physical, eat right, exercise and make your health a priority. I’d also like to ask you to support my Movember fundraising efforts, by donating to my campaign. My goal is to raise $2500 by the end of the month (you do not have to donate to participate in the giveaway).

Throughout the month, I will be holding giveaways to keep men’s health on everyone’s mind. This week’s giveaway is a Braun Cruzer Face Shaver (but don’t use it until you’re ready to shave off your sweet Mo at the end of November).

To enter the giveaway, answer the following question:

What men’s health issue are you most concerned about?
