My Movember Appeal

Hello all –

It occurs to me that I’ve gone almost the whole of Movember without hitting you up for a donation! Well, with only 8 days of mo’ season left that changes now!

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer.

While I’ve participated in Movember before, this year it has special personal significance for me: a close family member was diagnosed this year, just before our wedding. But he’s doing well and has responded to treatment—treatment (and research) made possible in part by funds raised through events like Movember.

I’m part of Oxford University Press Canada’s mo team again this year, and I’d like to beat my personal best fundraising total of $100. I’m at $80 now, with 8 days of mo’ to go.

I’m also second place on my team, and I would surely love to be King of the Mo this year. The first place guy is $70 ahead of me—plus he’s a red head. You’re not going to let a ginger beat me, are you!?!?

So will you help me?

Please go to for pictures of my mo’ (his name is Aramis) and consider a donation: even a $5 donation will go a long way in helping me reach my goal by the end of the month. If you forgot to get me a birthday present last week (yeah, you know you did) then a quick donation to my mo’ fund would be a perfect belated gift.

Thank you all, and may the mo’ be with you!

Stephen (and Aramis)
