It's Movember!

An appeal to my readers and fellow food bloggers: it's that time of year again, time for me to start fundraising for men's health. Of the two fundraising campaigns I blog about (the other being the failed Dan wants a Doctor Who Scarf campaign of 2009), this particular cause is worthy of your attention and donation dollars.

This Movember, the month formerly known as November I'm donating my face to raise awareness about prostate cancer. My donation and commitment is to grow a moustache for the entire month of Movember, which I'm sure will generate conversation, controversy and laughter. I'll be posting photos of my progress periodically on Schmaltz Herring dot Net for your amusement.

I'm doing this because 4,400 men die of prostate cancer in Canada each year and one in six men will be diagnosed during his lifetime. This is a cause that I feel passionately about and I’m asking you to support my efforts by making a donation to Prostate Cancer Canada.

To help, you can either:
  • Make a donation online and using your credit card or PayPal account
  • Write a cheque payable to Prostate Cancer Canada, referencing my name or Registration Number 44885 and mailing it to: Prostate Cancer Canada, Suite 306 145 Front Street East, Toronto, ON M5A 1E3, Canada.
All donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

For more details on how the funds raised from previous campaigns have been used and the impact Movember is having please visit the Movember Canada website.

Thanks so much for helping me support men's health.
