Movember Madness!

Say hello to Al.

Al is raising money for prostate cancer research.
By growing a moustache.
"What?" you're thinking.
"A moustache?
How in the world does that relate to prostate cancer?"
Lemme 'splain.

"Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a moustache. The rules are simple, start Movember 1st clean-shaven and then grow a moustache for the entire month. The moustache becomes the ribbon for men’s health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for prostate cancer. Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days."
(from the Movember website)

Al is generous enough to be the Frike mascot
for the month of Movember!
We get to watch his moustache grow,
and in return, we donate to his Movember fund.
(All Movember donations go to LIVESTRONG,
the Lance Armstrong Foundation.)

As if the chance to look at Al's 'stache isn't enough motivation,
I'm selling raffle chances to win this bracelet!

Each chance is $2.
To donate, click on the Movember button on the top right.
It will lead you directly to my paypal account where
you enter the amount you wish to donate.
Large or small, every bit matters!
(But make it in multiples of 2 so that you get all your chances!)

I'll choose a winner on December 1st!

On Friday of every week, I will be picking a winner
from all the people that donated to Al's Movember fund
to win 6 Hairy Cake Balls

Winners of the hairy cake balls are.....

Week 1: Michael Neyman!
Week 2: Shenandoa Manning!
Week 3: Rachel Porcaro!

(And cut a huge check for Al's Movember fund.)
