If I grew a moustache for you...

If I grew a moustache for you,
Would you grow affectionate for me?

This seemed like a good idea at the time...

My wife the English teacher saw an article in a magazine about a campaign to raise money for male cancer research. The idea is to get sponsored while you grow a moustache during the month of September. Full details can be found on the TacheBack website.

I immediately wanted to grow a walrus style moustache but my wife vetoed that idea and started trying to talk me out of the whole TacheBack idea. So, currently I'm aiming for more of a handlebar style but am prepared to fall back to a Tom Selleck, or even a Clark Gable if necessary. :-)

I would be very grateful if you would consider sponsoring me. You can donate online though my TacheBack sponsor page. To be honest, I feel a bit silly just now with barely visible stubble, especially when people don't know what I'm up to, so a bit of sponsorship would be a great encouragement to keep going.


P.S. Did you notice the sponsorship links? I'll do a bigger sponsorship link here, just in case you missed it earlier. :-)

Hi David... put me down for at least a fiver! I take it you are going to take the mandatory day-by-day photos so you can animate your encroaching hirsuteness?

In fact, I think you owe it to your kids to go the whole hog and iStopMotion the whole beard and moustache enchillada!

See you at TeachMeet...

One of my students has created an extremely accurate computer model of how my tache will develop. Enjoy... and then sponsor! :-)
