A Personal Request

And so it begins.


This month I pledge to grow something resembling a small anchovy on my upper lip in the name of raising awareness for men's health.

If you enjoy my blog, a blog fully free from advertising and wholly non-monetized, I'd like to ask you to consider donating to my Movember fundraising efforts. Every dollar counts, no donation is too small, and funds raised go to support an incredible grab bag of projects including those involving men's mental health, body image, eating disorders, prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and more.

Donating is easy. Just click here and give! And of course, Movember is a registered charity, so all donations are fully tax deductible.

In return I vow to continue to blog freely, to never allow advertisements, and to regularly post pictures of the natural form of birth control I'll be growing on my face. And, as a reach fundraising goal, should my fundraising exceed $3,000, I will publicly post a photo of me from back in 1995 when during medical school at the University of Toronto I placed second in our own cheesy moustache competition by channeling my best Freddie Mercury and sporting tight leather pants and a fishnet shirt.
