Save or Shave Carl?

Last year, I participated in Movember, an annual world-wide charity event where men grow mustaches during the month of November to raise money and awareness for men’s health — prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Women have October for breast cancer awareness, and now men have November for male cancers.

At the end of November, I decided to keep the ‘stache and roll with it. I’m ready to give it up, but I’m going to give the charity fund raising one more push.

I figured it would be fun to allow people to choose whether or not I keep the mustache by casting votes with dollars. I might even throw a party in Phoenix (or should it be in SF?) to make the final decision and shave the mustache LIVE if “Shave Carl” gets more donations.

Check out or for more details and to participate!
