Coming clean

Original post made on Nov 30, 2012

About 40 employees of SurveyMonkey, a Palo Alto tech firm that offers online surveys, grew mustaches in November, only to have them shaved off en masse Friday, Nov. 30. The effort was part of Movember, an annual campaign to raise awareness of prostate and testicular cancer. The men raised about $4,000 for the cause.

So women train and walk for breast cancer while men grow facial hair!

This strikes me as rather funny.

Well done to all the guys, hope you raise some money as well as raise awareness.

Great that they raised money for testicular and prostate cancer but I just don't get the 'growing a moustache for a month and then shaving it'. Women and kids and have shaved their heads in support of breast cancer, why do men only choose their lips?
