Happy Movember!

During the month of November I will be raising money through the Movember Foundation to go towards research, education, and outreach programs to support a variety of men's health issues, including:

For a $20 donation, you can score yourself a dozen, delicious, homemade cookies (your choice of chocolate chip, peanut butter, or sugar) as well as weekly updates on my mustache's progress, including pictures!

For a $25 donation, you can also score a dozen, delicious, homemade cookies (again, your choice), but you don't have to suffer through weekly photos of me and my mustache. What a bargain!

If you would like to donate, you can visit my Movember page below, then just shoot me an email and let me know what kind of cookies you would like!

To date, you have helped me raise $375 for men's health issues! Great job!


Movember is over! Thank you to all who donated and helped me raise money for a good cause. Special thanks to:

  • Amanda, Olivia, Zoe, and Bunny Maino
  • Derek, Peter, and Adrienne at Point Energy
  • Tiffany and all the wonderful people at Studio KDA
