MOVEMBER - Support and donate.

I call this my NedMOterhead
(Combination Ned Flanders and Lemmy)
It's DAY 29 of my luxurious ironic Movember mustache. It may look silly, but the fact that 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime is not funny... at all. 
That's why I'm growing this...with Movember Team Austin. I'm trying to get 20 people to be aware and to donate to my Movember page. I've got 10 donations thus far. If you have a buck or five to spare... please donate here:
