Movember Round-Up!

Movember Roundup

What does it take to help raise awareness for men’s health issues? This month at The Hudsucker, our gentlemen took part in the Movember movement with hopes to start a conversation on men’s health by coming together and sharing with readers their thoughts and experiences with growing a ‘stache, and why it’s so important to open up the dialogue on men’s health.

The Movember Foundation is the leading global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health. By challenging men to grow moustaches during the month of November, Movember USA hopes to spark conversation and raise vital funds for men’s health programs that include cancer and mental health. With Movember coming to an end now, this past week, our participating male writers shared with readers their 30 day journey of what their moustaches and the cause truly mean to them.

Shaving is the bane of my existence. I have more sensitive skin than a kindle of kittens. No lie, it doesn’t matter how hot a shower I take or how much after shave lotion I use—I’m going to have razor burn for days. CONTINUE READING…
