I know shaving goes against all that is beardly, but it is a pretty good cause.

I decided to commit to it this year but my wife has never seen my chin and so made the stipulation that I have to raise $500 before shaving. I'm even willing to act as sacrificial lamb goat (because they have beards) so as to preserve the many fine beards found here.

Go to www.Movember.com[2] if you haven't heard of it and want more info, and mobro.co/gorillo[3] if you want to donate to my cause.

Good luck! That's definitely a wonderful cause. I dislike being clean-shaven, so I've never participated in that way.

Actually, AoM usually has a few teams that participate.  It *is* a very good charity.

 

I've no great desire to shave off my beard, but maybe some styling?  I could shave down to a traditional goatee, and then let the mustache grow for Movember.  Hmmm.  Wonder how I'd look?
