On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember, for Movember.

I saw these t-shirts from an Irish company called Hairy Baby Clothing and to me they make absolutely no sense. Then it hit me that if you wear one, people won’t get it, but they will be too embarrassed to ask you to explain what the t-shirt means. If they do, you can raise your eyebrow and simply ask sarcastically “Do I really need to explain it to you?” and walk away.
ABC News Carrie Gann reports:
Cheerleaders at Gilbert High School in Gilbert, Ariz., can’t wear the pink t-shirts they bought to raise money for breast cancer research because the school’s administrators claim the slogan they bear is inappropriate. According to a Thursday report in the Arizona Republic, the squad’s shirts say “Feel for lumps, save your bumps,” and the team planned to wear them during the school’s football games during their cheers on the field and while collecting money from the crowd.
I don’t see what is the big deal on these shirts. Everyone wears those “I love boobies” bracelets and that is OK. Maybe everyone can understand how we have had a hard time coming up with a catchy slogan for t-shirts supporting prostate cancer research.
For fans, it may be hard to imagine a time that Project Runway co-host Tim Gunn wore less than flattering suits.
But he told Portsmouth Abbey students Sept. 30 that he wore just that for years as he rose through the ranks — not of the fashion industry but college education.
The 58-year-old was little known before the TV show debuted in 2004 — he acts as mentor to contestants competing for the chance to start a fashion line.
Mr. Gunn’s catch phrase on the show is “make it work,” a phrase that he used teaching in the classroom for 29 years, he said, but that also applies to everyday life.

Portsmouth Abbey competes with St. George’s for having one of the nicest views from campus. I think that St. George’s wins out, but my friends at the Abbey love it there. Both schools benefit from being so close to prep haven Newport, RI.
