Goodbye Movember! A Moustachean Melodrama

Movember is over, and I'm happy to say we did a lot of good.  My team, comprised mostly of  Dad 2.0 guys and the NY City Dad's Group guys, managed to raise over $18,000 to help fight men's health issues.   I was right in the middle of the pack- #36 out of 64 guys.  The top guy raised $2K by himself, my friend Matt Schneider (and fellow Penn grad! Go Quakers!)

But wait-- that's not all!  #Norelco, good guys and brand that they are-- has added a twist-- they are donating an ADDITIONAL $15,000 TO OUR TEAM'S TOTAL!  That's a whole lot of moolah!  Thank you Norelco!

What they've asked our team to do is create a video of shaving off your moustache-- something I may have already done anyway!  And they donated Shaving Equipment to do it! And they are going to compile all of the videos.

They sent me via overnight a package containing a Vacuum Stubble & Beard Trimmer and a SensoTouch 3D Shaver .  (They are also offering a holiday rebate off the SensoTouch, if you are interested.)

The package was beautifully wrapped.

I should disclose at this point that these items were free to me, but my opinions are my own, and I promise that I am not in the pocket of Norelco, nor am I just saying things to shine you own, prevaricate, or otherwise mess with you.  Well, I might mess with you about some things, but not this.

It was good to shave, although I'm usually facially haired anyway.  The new shaver is pretty good!  They also sent a beard trimmer with vacuum that I didn't use yet.  But I hope to!

Anyway, I decided to create a little Moustachean Melodrama to celebrate the freedom of my lip from its villainous hair.

We found your video and Matt Schneider's highly entertaining. And by that we mean...kinda hot.

In the — blogs with high-production values that were made to raise $$ to fight men's cancer — way, kinda hot.
