Ah, Movember. It’s the time of year when usually hairless gentlemen sprout mustaches of all shapes and sizes.

But this facial hair is about more than grooming or vanity or upper lip warmth. It’s for a good cause. Throughout November, members of the Movember movement shape and sculpt their mustaches in an effort to raise awareness around prostate and testicular cancer.

Last year, Movemeber raised $126.3 million, the bulk of which was delivered to The Prostate Cancer Foundation and The LIVESTRONG Foundation.

To learn more about how you can participate (first step: start with a clean slate — a freshly shaven face; second step: begin ushering in your Mo) visit Movember and Sons.

Ladies, you too can get in on the Mo Action by becoming a Mo Sista.

I’m trying to figure out how to slip this little number onto my wish list:

Hair India: A Guide to the Bizarre Beards and Magnificent Moustaches of Hindustan

This is the next generation of coffee table book. A comprehensive tour of the wildly hirsute men of India by Richard McCallum — author and pogonologist — and Chris Stowers, renowned international photographer.

Amazon claims that the book is currently out of stock — and of course it is. This is good stuff. But I’m sure it can be found with a bit of creative hunting. I’m going to start looking now.
