So here we are, two weeks into Movember and I couldn’t be more pleased with how things are going. Our Movember team is up to 36 members and we’ve raised over $2,205 for charity so far. Just a refresher for those of you who don’t know, Movember is the practice of growing a mustache for the month of November, in the name of raising awareness for cancers that effect men. The money for Movember in the US is going towards two groups, Livestrong and the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
Mr. Will Strohl is participating in Movember and has said he’ll post a picture of his mustache if he hit’s $1k, there’s really nothing much to see (not that I’m one to talk, I may get some Just For Men to make mine visitble) that’s why he’s gotta wear the fake in the photo above.
I’ll take a moment to highlight the people in the photo above, Left to Right, Top to Bottom. These are only the folks in the California office who are participating in Movember and were in the office today.

Hopefully someone up in the Canadian office will post a similar blog about the status of their endeavors, I know they also have a ringer in on this as well, Phil Beadle had a Mo going on the 2nd day of the month after starting freshly shaved on the first.
There’s still time to sign up for #Movember, you’ve got two weeks left to gro! I’m still donating $1 to everyone who joins the DotNetNuke Movember team (up to 500 members) so get going! If you want to sign up for the team register on http://us.movember.com and join the DotNetNuke team.
I’m personally also committed to shaving my head (razor shave) if my personal MoSpace (http://cjh.am/mohammond) gets $1k in donations, or the team hits $10k. Individuals can raise money and it goes to their team totals as well.
You can also donate to the team as a whole, and when making a team donation you can split it among the team members individually, or just go straight to the team. The team donation link is at http://cjh.am/dnn-mo
