In case you have an aversion to seeing other people's stories, here's what I wrote. But the other one's are good also!

This is my third year participating in Movember. I do it to help people and to raise awareness about men's health issues. I do it to help support and be part of the community of dads and bloggers and friends that are all doing it together. And I do it because it happens to be something that I am pretty good at!

I'm not a very good runner, and I don't want to touch a truck for 75 hours, and going door to door asking for signatures is not really my thing. But when I realized I could raise money to kick cancer's ass, raise awareness about men's health issues, and do all that by doing something that comes pretty naturally -- well, woo friggin' hoo!
Now I just can't wait for somebody to invent Pie-ly, when I eat a pie a day to raise awareness for ... well, hmmm ... I haven't thought this through yet. But there's got to be something!
Give to Adam's MO.
