We all know about Movember, yes? Well, this year Olay is instituting its first ever "Defember" campaign where women pledge to de-'stache (de-fuzz) in support of Breast Cancer research and the National Breast Cancer Foundation, which promotes early breast cancer detection and offers free mammograms for women in need.
(For every woman that pledges to defuzz in Defember on Olay’s Facebook page, Olay will donate $1 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, up to $50,000.)
Yesterday I played around with MISStache Swap on Facebook, which boasts a wide variety of mustaches to choose from. Since I've been told my whole I look like my father, I couldn't NOT chose the "Larry Woolf" model mustache to pin to my profile pic. Damn, if it isn't strapping:
(apparently my dad loves him a red polo?)
...And speaking of hi, hello and Larry Woolf mustaches, here is a picture of my parents the summer they met and fell in love at UCSD. My dad was a graduate student and my mom was a smitten twenty-year-old who looks so adorkable in this picture I could die.
...It's my favorite photo ever and lives permanently on my desk where I sit typing this so NATURALLY I had to include it in this here post about 'staches. (My dad has NEVER not had a mustache. Ever. After wearing one for two hours I can say with authority that THAT is some serious commitment, people!)
And speaking of commitment: pledge to support Breast Cancer research whilst removing your "miss-stache" here. Big ups to Olay for sponsoring this post and fundraising for such a noble cause.
