    Hey, guys! Growing it out for Movember?

    More from mvincze

    Movember 30th


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     mvincze, an information technology director in Massachusetts, lost an aunt to lung cancer last year and thought the Movember project 'seemed like something I could do to raise money for cancer awareness.' This was the first time he grew a mustache by itself, and he is eager to get rid of it. 'Early in the month, it was pretty terrible. Everybody I was talking to, especially girls, I could tell they were staring at the lower part of my face ... they were staring at the mustache that looked kind of creepy.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    The great month of Movember is now winding down. Soon our moustaches will be put away for another year.


    Some of us met our goals, some exceeded and others did not make it to the end.


    I would like to believe that I have succeeded in what I set out to do. I did not raise quite as much money as I had hoped, but I do not think it can be said that is was from lack of trying.


    In the last 30 days I have made 3 humorous promotional videos, (which can be found here: Movember Videos ), been featured on a couple of well known news aggregate websites and raised nearly $100, all while growing the best moustache I could.


    The experience has certainly been rewarding and I look forward to next year. Perhaps I will try for a Fu Manchu.
