It’s Mid-Movember, And Nick Offerman Wants You To Know: It Gets Fuller
November 15, 2012

Whether you're taking part in Movember by growing a moustache of your own, or just sitting back and enjoying the sudden feeling that you've walked onto the set of a seventies cop movie, you may have noticed that the month has reached a critical point.

We're half way there. And some people's moustaches look a little... Well, weak right now.

If you're in possession of a half way 'stache, fear not. Nick Offerman has some mid-Movember words of encouragement: It Gets Fuller.

With some help from 'The Office' cast members Jake Lacy, Brian Baumgartner and Oscar Nunez, Offerman lets all the half-stachers know that they will make it to full nose-tickler status.

After all, it took a full 28 hours for Offerman to grow his magnificent moustache. You just need a little patience.

If you're not familiar with Movember, it's an annual charity campaign dedicated to "changing the face of men's health."

In past years, the goal has been raising awareness and money for research into men's physical health problems, and specifically prostate cancer.

For 2012, the campaign also includes a focus on men's mental health.

So how can you get involved? First and foremost, don't mock the half-'stache. It's for a good cause.

And second, you can visit the Movember site right here to find out more about the event and donate.
