Long been a fan of Yosemite Sam? Well you too can have his look, without his trigger-edgy personality and obsession with hunting varmints. In fact, you can feel good about emulating the larger-than-life short guy by joining the Movemeber campaign "Mustaches vs. Cancer, because kids can't grow mustaches, and they shouldn't have cancer either." That's definitely a slogan we like here at The Daily Green, what with trying to keep the world safe from toxic chemicals, poisoned toys and other scary stuff.
Remember that time your coworker asked you to sponsor her 5k walk for osteoporosis? Well you can get back at her with something much more manly! Grow a mustache, get
suckers friends and family to sponsor you, and donate to fighting cancer. I heard about the worthy challenge from friends over at the manly site Asylum. Sign up for the hairy cause and let Asylum know you did to enter to win t-shirts and other cool stuff.
Other sites participating include AskMen, Men's Fitness, Maxim, The Chive, Guyism, The Bachelor Guy, Switched, Fanhouse, Noise Creep, Asylum UK (duh), Urlesque, Moondog Sports, Chris Illuminati, SEC Rivals, Midwest Sports Fan, Cool Material, Dave and Thomas, Burbia, Stephen Bailey, Gear Patrol, Yep Yep, Next Round, UGO, Mediaite and The American Mustache Institute. Yep, the Art of Manliness is in the game too. Oh, and wondering what Movember is? AOM sums it up: "Started in 2003, Movember is an annual, month-long celebration of the mustache, highlighting mens health issues -- specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and male depression. During the month of November, men grow a mustache and raise funds for charities like the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LIVESTRONG)."
Hey, as TDG editors already know, facial hair can be green as well as hot!
Speaking of manliness, what's more macho than running a marathon....barefoot? We've written before about the scientific debate over whether it's better to go barefoot, or at least where very thin shoes, but Green Guide Network CEO Casey Cochran takes it a (lot of) steps further. According to a recent release, Cochran has already logged more than 75 miles in three states in three months. "He has been hit by a Hummer, gotten stares from people, and his feet hurt but nothing is deterring him from running a marathon barefoot for a good cause," claims the Green Guide Network.
What's the deal? Cochran will be running the Santa Barbara Marathon (December 6) barefoot in support of TOMS Shoes mission, with the goals of raising awareness and providing 1,000 shoes to children in need worldwide. This will be Cochran's fourth marathon, first sans footwear.
