How to Grow (or Sponsor) the Perfect Movember Moustaches With Strombo & CBC Radio 3

On this first day of Movember you can help "change the face of men's health" by registering your clean shaven face at movember.com and committing to a month's worth of moustache growth and maintenance - a proud international activity come this time of year.

If you're interested in becoming a Mo Bro and raising funds to support male mental health initiatives and the fight against prostate cancer, Strombo.com has provided a Guide to Growing the Perfect Stache, full of facial follicle inspiration. 

I'd sponsor "The Selleck" any day.

If you're interested in supporting some of the best Mo's in the nation, sponsor the CBC Radio 3 team, which includes hosts Grant Lawrence and Craig Norris, singer-songwriter Jeremy Fisher and producer Pedro Mendes.

In defense of the moustache, Pedro says, "I personally feel that the distrust that people have for moustaches is symptomatic with our society's distrust for overt masculinity"

Craig calls it "overt grooming". 

Nonetheless, both invite the potential ridicule as an opportunity to support the cause. 

"I think that there's a lot more opportunity for engagement about what's going on when you have a moustache," says Craig. "When people come up to you and go, 'Why are you growing a moustache?' you can actually talk about Movember and what it's for."

Here they are on day one. Hot? Of course. But just wait until they grow the manliest badge of philanthropy there is - a progress we'll be documenting right here on CBC Live. Don't forget to sponsor the CBC Radio team now.
