Happy Movember!

I’ve been a breast cancer research support for a few years.  Figured it was time to give something back to my own team.  So, this year, I’m giving Movember a shot, a raising fund and awareness for men’s health issues, especially prostate cancer, by growing out a bitch’n goatee.  Please drop by my personal donation page, and give a few bucks if you can, much appreciated.   I’ll try snap a picture of my mustache progress every few days just for kicks.
