The first day of November and that means Movember!!!
This world wide initiative was started to raise awareness of prostate and testicular cancer. The idea is that you start the month clean shaven and grow a moustache (no beard or goatee!) for the whole month. I know some people might find it difficult, since they don´t have a lot of facial hair!
On the website you can find a lot of information on how to participate, raise money and awareness, etc.
