Whit Honea shows his sons how to save a life—with facial hair.
We are halfway through the magical month of Movember, and for the sake of every man you have ever met, let’s hope your hand is halfway to hitting “make a donation” on the participating page of your choice.
And thank you for supporting the cause.
Movember isn’t just about mustaches, awesome as they may be, but also to raise money and awareness for men’s issues, namely prostate and testicular cancers, respectively. Also, mental health.
Past Movembers have raised enough money that the medical community is absolutely giddy about their progress and the chance for a cure(s). But in the meantime there are good men suffering and dying all around us: sons, fathers, husbands, cousins, friends, etc., and if a thick stretch of whiskers can spare them that experience then put the razor down and get used to the general public screaming whenever you walk down the street. It happens.
My boys, ages 10 and 7, have joined me this year in growing mustaches for Movember. Puberty is going to have the last laugh in this one, and surely that’s worth a buck.
