It’s Movember!

And this is NOT A TYPO!

Movember is a is “a moustache growing charity event during the month formerly known as November”.

A couple of Aussies kicked off the project back in 2003 and since then it has gone pretty much around the world. I’ve seen a couple of my fellow co-workers over in the UK growing moustaches back in November 2010 and 2009.

As we’ve got a good mix of people from around the world here at KPMG in Switzerland there’s the two Adam (Evans and Mitchell) Mo-bros’s  started Movember also at KPMG Switzerland. Of course I couldn’t resist and joined them. (Not that my wife likes it, but – hey – it’s for a good cause!)

The Swiss KPMG Movember gang is collecting money for the KPMG Foundation.  We set ourselves the goal to raise SFr. 5’000 and (don’t act surprised now, c’mon) I am asking you to donate too. We’d really appreciate it.!

The KPMG Foundation will use the money (the full amount btw, no funny deductions) we raise for one of the projects they support.

Of course this post wouldn’t be complete without a picture of my moustache (or rather the early stages of it..) at day 4.

I’ll post updates (yes, pictures!) during NMovember and some final comment early December, so stay tuned for updates.
