This year I decided to join the many thousands of men all over Australia who are growing a moustache during the month of November to raise funds for Beyond Blue and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
I thought about doing it last year just to see how I would go but I missed out. I made a pact with myself that I would give it a go in 2011 and now as I now move into day 23 of Movember 2011 I’m realising why I don’t grow a moustache in the first place.
First of all it’s been really itchy just above my top lip for a little while now and quite frankly I’m over it and secondly, it’s a really unattractive look.
Even right now I just want to go and shave the bloody thing off but I did make a promise to my mate Bryan Foley and the team that I belong to called the “Improver Groovers” that I would stick it out to the very end.
Besides, there’s only 7 more days to go before I can resume my normal facial hair growing activities.
Here are some images that have tracked my moustache growing over the past 23 days
Day 1 (Clean Shaven)
Day 23 (Today)
Not long ago someone told me that I was starting to look like porn star Ron Jeremy in which my reply was “I wish.”
At the end of the day though, the whole reason for putting myself through this follicular torture is to raise some money and this is where you all come into play here.
All you need to do is to go to http://mobro.co/coreystewart and click on the “Donate To Me” button underneath my profile photo on the top left hand side of the page.
Feel free to donate any amount you wish but remember, your donating to a couple of very worthwhile causes so dig in deep.
I wonder what my face is going to look like at day 30?
