The Strength to Get Things Done

Movember No Comments »

Last night’s Seattle Movember Gala event over in Fremont was a blast!  I enjoyed seeing all of the creative costume ideas, especially since I missed out on Halloween this year – even more entertaining being in a room packed with mustaches: some epic and some just downright scary.  Here’s my costume, which I fully intent to re-use for Halloween next year:

Congrats to everyone that participated in Movember this year – we had an outstanding season… but a huge pat on the back to all of Microsoft who collectively raised over $100k (USD) across the globe BEFORE any applicable gift matching.  Everyone did a phenomenal job this year, and I can’t wait for Movember 2012!

Read more about Microsoft’s efforts here.  It’s not to late to contribute: make a donation here.

I made mustache gingerbread cookies in honor of the last day of Movember. I’m taking them in to work, but figured they needed some ninjabread men to be better prepared for the fight against cancer!

Here I am getting fitted for the tux used in last week’s “Liverace” benefit concert – check out the handsome ‘stache for Movember!

Remember, just like last year you can donate to me to help Microsoft beat Google in raising funds and awareness for men’s health!

Mocember 4th: The Last of the Moweekends

Well, folks, it’s been fun!  Sir Reginald von Burlington IV (my moustache) and I would like to thank everyone for your support over the last month!  Our team totalled $3,226 – while we didn’t beat Google, I think we put a healthy dent in the fight against men’s cancers.

I look forward to updating you again in the future, as we will soon be approaching Mullet March!  Just kidding, just kidding…

Mocember 1st: Thank You!

In a pleasant surprise last night, I discovered I am all out of my Movember thank-you notes (pictured above)!  That means last month was a very successful fundraiser, thanks to all of you!  I apologize to anyone who donated in the last few days as I’ll need to make another batch of notes before I can get yours in the mail.

If you, too, would like one of these limited edition thank-you notes, stop by my Movember site to make a last minute contribution.  I’ve decided to keep my moustache for a few more days because I’m only $311 away from my goal which would mean keeping it for December!  I’ll see where we’re at this weekend before I pull out the razor.

Our team, The MOXstaches, raised over $3000 last month, helping bring the Microsoft total above $33,000!  Excellent work and special thanks to all my Mo Bros and Mo Sistas at work and those supporting our team!

Here’s a shot of the Moustache Cake I made for our party yesterday:
