November First will begin like any other day. I’ll wake up, I’ll shower, I’ll shave, I’ll take the train to work, and then I’ll code all day.
November Second will be a little different. I’ll wake up, I’ll shower, and I’ll shave, and I’ll take the train to work and code. But that shave will be a little shorter, skipping my upper lip. I’ll continue ignoring one part of my face through the end of the month.
Why? Because it’s Movember. And guys still get prostate and testicular cancer.
This year we want to double that amount. But we need your help.
We started a network at Movember called Webstache – a place where anyone in the web development community can start a team, or join a team, or just donate. Our friends at Square have joined the Pivotal teams from San Francisco, Boulder and New York. How about your company?
The mustache I’ll be growing is sad. But not as sad as the fact that 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.
