eROI is celebrating “Movember.”

Dan Gonzalez

We are celebrating Movember this month at eROI. Movember is a global campaign and cause that began in Melbourne, Australia in 2003 to bring attention and awareness to men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

“Each year during the month of November, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of mustaches on hundreds of thousands of men’s faces around the world. Men grow and women support the mustache for 30 days to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.”

First and foremost EVERYONE has been very supportive. It is the outward facing gesture of growing a mustache that opens the door for dialog bringing attention to the cause.
Here is our progress report for eROI’s Movember participants (in alphabetical order):

  • Aldo, Aldo, Aldo. All that’s left is the support.
  • Chris works hard and plays hard and his mustache is no exception. Almost on command the chris-stache can go from a train-driving cabbage patch doll to Magnum PI. My request is that it flourishes like the Hawaiian countryside from whence it came.
  • I, Dan, am making good progress. Once a year (Movember) I jump in and pray the waters are warm. This may be the best effort so far but still not quite as full as I think is acceptable for a day-to-day stache. I can’t go beyond looking like I haven’t shaved in two weeks.
  • Gerry is very enthusiastic despite not having a very full pattern. Normally put together it’s been a stretch here in the office and apparently at home for him to keep trucking on, but truck on he shall.
  • Matt A. also falls prey to the light pattern. He too is being a good sport by sprouting what he can. Drawn from some comment this morning, I think this is the longest he’s ever gone without shaving. Participation award is being considered.
  • Matt G. got a running start into Movember. Already showing his hand with a full pattern and good downward growth he has given the others something to work towards, or simply dream. He has had to change his eating habits to make room for his new friend- NO CAKE.
  • Matt P. has been holding back, in my opinion. Here’s a fella who could no doubt go young Santa Claus on us over the weekend but he chooses to stay leading man getting ready for brunch. Matt- put down the mimosa and please deliver the goods.
  • Ryan has been busy this month, rumor is his razor has been too.
  • Tyler is 100% on board but 100% cannot grow anything visible beyond three feet away.

More progress reports to come, in the meantime to learn more about our efforts go to eroi.com/get-your-stache-on.
