Before I was the blogging superstar (or wanna be take your pick) that I am today Mr Awesome once took part in this wonderful initiative. Of course I possibly wasn't as supportive as I could have been. I don't kiss men who have a mo and that's all there is too it. It's just not right.
Anyway, it's needless to say Mr Awesome hasn't bothered growing one since. Which was kind of a shame because last year I really wanted to blog about it but for the life of me couldn't find anyone I knew who was taking part.
Turns out I may not have looked very hard because as I recently discovered, my gorgeous nephew is taking part in Movember. In actual fact this is his second year, I missed the memo about it last year. Whoops!
And when I say gorgeous nephew I really do mean gorgeous, in every sense of the word.
Now I know I might be a little biased but I just think it is awesome, actually beyond awesome that a group of young guys like Nathan and his mates are taking part in this fantastic campagin. It certainly gives hope to the men of tomorrow. Well it does for me anyway.
So lovely bloggy friends and followers I implore you to go and throw a few dollars towards this dashingly good looking mo. The link to his page is right here
I asked Nathan if he could share a few words about why he wants to be a part of Movember. Here is what he said
In the month of November I observed the gradual progression of Christmas lights, illuminating the usually lacklustre existence of the neighbouring residents. A sudden influx of wrapping, treats and trees adorned shop windows as I passed during my usual stroll. The wind attacked me with its newfound summer heat and I took shelter in one such shop. Relieved to have escaped the wind, I found an inviting bench where I could rest my weary legs. Looking around, I couldn’t help but notice a somewhat peculiar occurrence. Along with the usual changes of the impending Christmas, there was a high proportion of males with moustaches. I enquired to one such individual about these moustaches and he explained that he was involved in “Movember”, a campaign to raise awareness and funds for Men’s health issues including prostate cancer and depression.”
Almost a year later a group of friends and myself decided to try and make a difference on these vital issues. As part of the process, we attempted to grow the best Mo possible, often will dismal results. We hope that we can raise awareness of prevalence and problems of prostate cancer and men’s depression. These are two issues that many men find difficult to talk about and these problems often go unnoticed in the public sphere. This is the second year that I have been involved and I hope that I can raise more funds than last year. I also hope that I can grow a better mo, as last year it failed to grow in the middle area right under my nose.
Regardless of my poor efforts with my Mo, it is the cause that is important, so please donate generously.
Naw bless him.
Please if you are in a position to help out in anyway it is a vital cause and will be greatly appreciated.

Naww, how wonderful of him! My Bro-In-Law is participating again this year. I hope to blog about him soon.ReplyDelete
I know right? Honestly just warms my heart no end to know there are caring young people out there. I mean caring anyone but especially the young they can get a bad wrap so oftenDelete
What a wonderful person your nephew is. I'm quite surprised my hubby hasn't joined in. Maybe he's a bit worried about where his won't grow as well! :-)ReplyDelete
Yes I must admit I think that is one of the reasons Mr Awesome didn't do it again, the ribbing he got from all for his inability to grow facial hair was not good for his mental health!Delete
Good on him! My hubster is doing it too- but I quite like it! (Once it gets past the really prickly stage) So great to see so many guys chipping in for such a great cause. Also, just quietly, your nephew is a bit of alright ;)ReplyDelete
Isn't just a bit of alright :0) He lives interstate and it has been a while since I saw him and when I saw the photo he sent I was totally flabbergasted. Though you know good looking genes are in our family...lolDelete
What an amazing young man. I love what he wrote too.ReplyDelete
Yes I loved what he wrote as well. I had to laugh because when he gave it to me he said feel free to edit it and when I read it I thought as if that needs editing!Delete
What a great young man to be joining in.Excellent news...and you are far too young to have a grown up nephew!! Denyse xReplyDelete
Yes bless him and his friends. And thanks I feel far too young to have a grown up nephew as well but there you have it!Delete
Oh awesome! And yes, he is gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Yes yes he is :) Runs in the family I guess ;PDelete
Such a great cause and an amazing young man!ReplyDelete
yes it is and yes he is, thanks for stopping byDelete
you're such a nice guy Nathan!!ReplyDelete
Isn't he justDelete
It's not fair for someone to be this gorgeous and nice at the same time!!!! OMG I am sooo jealous!! It's too good to be true! I'm speechless..ReplyDelete
This made me smile :):)ReplyDelete
Wow! I love what he wrote. Very feminine and touching. He seems amazing. I was just wondering Rhianna, is he homosexual? The way he writes/looks leads me to believe it! If so, i was wondering if you could set us up as I am too! Get back to me, cheers thanks :)ReplyDelete
Wow. Deleted my comment with no reply. Homophobia at its best!ReplyDelete
Not homophobia at all, and your comment has not been the only one deleted. Unfortunately there have been a few comments recently that I have felt inappropriate so I deleted them. Yours got caught up with them.
I am sorry for not replying to your previous comment. I assumed your intentions behind your comment were possibly not of the nicest nature and therefore paid it no heed.
I personally would think that if you were serious in your interest then you would have gone about it a different way. Nathan's sexuality is not something I think should be discussed here.
I really meant no hard feelings if your request was in fact genuine and I do sincerely apologise for thinking the worst
