    HI Guys, it's that lovely time of year again, when we don't have to shave, and no one can really attack you for looking too scruffy. Well, I'm participating again this year in MOvember. I raised over 1500$ last year and I thought I would post up here, in case anyone wanted to donate to this cause this year. So, if you thought you might want to grow a MOstash, but bailed at the last second(or your wife said no), or if you know someone that has had mens health issues like prostate related problems, that could be a reason to donate. Another great thing is that for every dollar I raise, my firm will match dollar for dollar. So, you get to leverage your donation, with my firms matching. Anyway, here is the message which will direct you how to donate. I'll be posting up some updated pics soon(even though it's embarassing as can be). For those of you also growin a stash and raising money, congrats to you! Thanks, Steve

    It’s Movember, the month formerly known as November, which is dedicated to growing moustaches and raising awareness and funds for men’s health. I have joined the movement and will be donating my upper lip to the cause for 30 days. My Mo will spark conversations, and no doubt generate some laughs; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for prostate cancer.

    Why am I so passionate about men’s health?
    *On average men live 4-5 years less than women
    *1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
    * 25,500 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year in Canada

    I invite you to support me by donating to me http://www.movember.com/m/781812

    You can even go old school and write a cheque payable to “Movember Canada”, reference my name and Registration Number 781812 and send it to: Movember Canada, 119 Spadina Avenue, PO Box 65, Toronto, ON M5T 2T2

    All donations are tax deductible.

    We only have a month to grow Mos and raise awareness and fund, so please come along for the ride.
    Funds raised will help make a tangible difference to the lives of others. Through the Movember Foundation and their men’s health partner, the Prostate Cancer Canada, Movember is funding world class awareness, research, educational and support programs which would otherwise not be possible.

    For more details on how the funds raised from previous campaigns have been used and the impact Movember is having please click on the links below:

    HI Guys, the final numbers are in. I ended up raising 2000$ for Movember. The brokers across the firm globally raised 225000$ which was then matched by our firm. So, we raised a total of $450000 for Prostate Cancer research. I was pretty surprised by the number, and pretty proud also. Cheers.
