    Hey, guys! Growing it out for Movember?

    More from tontow

    And So It Ends!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     tontow says he and his colleagues decided to participate in Movember this year as a group. Growing the mustache was relatively easy for him, he says: 'My facial hair is quite dark and grows pretty fast, but some of my colleagues have struggled a bit. You also need to be prepared to shave and trim carefully, one slip and you can be back to the start of Movember all over again.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    Movember is about raising awareness of male cancer. In particular the unmentionables; testicular and prostrate cancer.
    For the past month I've been cultivating some facial hair, a moustache to be specific. Not wanting this to be just a plain moustache I went for something a little more overstated. I believe it's known as a "biker", in moustache growing circles but some of my work colleagues are keen to refer to it as the 70's porn star look.

    Either way it's raised £115 for cancer charities. Many thanks to everyone who has been kind enough to sponsor me.
