Have you guys heard of Movember? In 2003 in Melbourne, Australia, a few friends decided to grow out their facial hair for the month of November to draw attention to men’s health issues. Their humble, hairy plan: that their mustaches could “change the face of men’s health” and maybe they could raise a few bucks along the way. Today, hundreds of thousands of men around the world participate by vowing to put down their razors for the entire month and round up donations from friends. Last year, all those mustaches, goatees, and neckbeards were able to raise $42 million to fund prostate cancer research. Not bad, huh?
With all these extra beards and mustaches cropping up, I’m curious: How do you feel about facial hair? Do you prefer your man clean-shaven, fully bearded, or somewhere in between? And if you’re not usually a fan of beards, would you make an exception for charity facial hair? And after the jump, check out what the ladies of Asylum think of Movember.
