A few years ago, a small group of folks in Australia created what they called "Movember" (November + moustache). During November each year, men register with the charity and pledge to grow moustaches to raise vital awareness and funds for prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. It has since become a global event, and in 2011, over 854,000 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas around the world raised $126.3 million for the program. This is a topic that is near and dear to me personally, as someone who has a close relative battling stage 4 prostate cancer.
Editor-in-Chief Jay A. Hartman of the digital publisher Untreed Reads (disclaimer: I have two stories published by them), is participating this year, both facially and financially. In addition to growing his own example of fine moustachery, for every donation you make through the Untreed Reads Movember portal, he will provide you with a coupon good for an ebook of your choice from the UR catalog. Be sure to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know when you donated so they can hook you up with your free ebook. There is more info about that on the Untred Reads website. The Movember site also has information on prostate and testicular cancer, including stats, symptoms, tests, treatment and more.
