You might be walking around town, at work and in malls and observing a number of men with silly little attempts at moustaches and wondering…are the 70’s coming back? Nope its Movember!
Myself as well as hundreds of thousands of men in Canada are taking part in this annual tradition of growing our stash to raise money and awareness for mens health issues.
There is a team assembled in Milton called the Milton MO’s who are committed to raise as much money as possible for this cause. So far we have 8 members and Im very proud to say we are setting a pretty lofty goal. We would like to be in the top 10o0 of teams in Canada and we need your help.
Ive been described as a guy who puts his money where his mouth is when its comes to taxes in Milton and this is no different. As I did last year, I had a contest to help raise more money. I donated my stash to be coloured for the last week of the month. Up until November 23rd, the person or organization who gives the largest donation gets to pick the colour. Last year there was a battle between the Blue Room Spa here in town (who of course wanted BLUE) and other residents and we ended up raising several hundred more dollars than if I didnt have this contest.
So please be generous. Go to my Movember page http://ca.movember.com/mospace/3343581 and get in line to pick a colour. Pass the link on to your friends or anyone else that might want to see yours truly walk about town with a coloured stash.
If you have already donated to Movember … THANK YOU SO MUCH! IF not why not have some fun with it (at my expense) so lets have some fun and help change the face of men’s health.
As I announced recently, I am taking part in the Movember campaign to help change the face of men’s health and funds for prostate cancer. Just yesterday, The Blue Room Spa in Milton made a donation of $100.00 and their choice of colour…obviously BLUE!
You still have time to make your donation at my Movember page http://mobro.co/MikeCluett before the 20th if you’d like to see my ‘stash your favourite colour.
Many thanks to everyone who has donated so far and THANK YOU to The Blue Room Spa for your generosity.
This is some of my other Milton Mo Bro’s as well.

Here’s what I’ve got at the half way point.
Thanks to Bernadette for letting me know of two more Milton Mo’ Bro’s. As you are aware, I along with many other Canadians and people around the world are donating our muggs to help change the face of men’s health by growing insane mustashes. If you’d like to donate to my Movember campaign, please visit http://mobro.co/MikeCluett.
So far Pat is OK with it, but Im sure as it grows in, that opinion will change. I have also decided to sweeten the deal to see how much more money we can raise.
From now until November 20th, the person with the largest single donation to my Movember campaign can decide what colour I will dye the ‘stash and I will keep it until the end of the month. Please be kind with your colour choices…PLEASE 🙂
Here is my updated list of ‘Mo Bros in Milton.

Keep the Milton Mo’s coming and make sure you make a donation to choose what colour the Cluett ‘stash will be.
As you may have noticed, I am taking part in this years Movember movement to help change the face of men’s health in Canada and much to my wife’s shegrin the “Hulk Hogan” stash is taking form quite nicely.
I had sworn off facial hair after it kept going whiter and whiter as time went on, but this is for a good cause. You can donate to my Movember page http://mobro.co/MikeCluett and help raise money for prostate cancer among other things about men’s health.
There are also a number of other Miltonians taking part in this as well so take some time to visit their pages as well.

It was suggested on the Milton Lifestyle page that once its long enough, to dye the stash blonde, Leaf blue or as Anthony suggested yesterday PURPLE! I’ll update as to THAT contest and maybe we can raise even more money. Stay tuned.
Until then, I’ll continue to grow the prickly stash until Pat tells me to trim it a little.
