Envato’s newest Ruby Developer, Lucas, has recruited all the guys in the Melbourne office to participate in Movember.
Movember is a mustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men’s health.
We thought this was such a good idea that we’ve decided to run a little Movember fundraiser here on the marketplaces too! Grow a mo in November and post it on the forums, and you could not only raise money for charity, but win a coveted Mo Badge. The best mo will win the Gold Mo badge – the only one given out this year!
Here’s how it works. First, take a photo of yourself pre-mustache. Begin growing your mo, then at the end of November post up a pre-mo and post-mo photo in a forum thread we’ll create towards the end of November. For every member that grows a mo and puts a photo up on the marketplaces, we’ll donate AU$10 to Movember Australia (up to a maximum of AU$1000).
If you really want to get into it, why not register with Movember online and raise some money for Movember too! It’s a great cause, and I’ve been told that all men secretly want to look like Tom Selleck! For some mo-spiration, check out this awesome site.
Finally, every member who grows a mo will receive a special Mo badge, and the coolest mo, as chosen by Collis, will win the coveted Gold Mo – and only one of these will be given away this year!
So give up the razor, and start growing that mo!!
Haha. I may have to do this one, myself – just for fun.
haha I can grow a beard but not a mustache. Darn. I can try though.
A couple friends do what they call “Civil War” mustaches and they convinced me to give it a shot (it began this month). I’ve never grown one though and more than two days worth drives me absolutely nuts for some reason. I made it 6 days before I couldn’t stand it and had to shave, lol.
However, if it’s for a good cause, I can do better. I may have to give this a go.

Holy smokes! Those are crazy!
wish I had a before shot, but my g/f HATES me without a mustache/goatee. so it looks like I’m out. good luck to everyone though.
That’s probably just as well, Jarel. I don’t think they give out awards for peach fuzz.
Jarel still isn’t aware of when I’m joking with him.
To clarify – joking.
