It’s the end of week one and the Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management has been killing it! We’ve raised a total of $4,276 ($2,218 from the Midwest and $1,994 from the Northwest) and gained a few more members, putting Ministry membership at 73! And, of those 73 members, 39 have received donations!

Definitely off to a good start!

For comparison, last year at the Day 7 mark we had raised $4,471 ($2,316 from the Midwest team and $2,113 from The Northwest). A little behind pace for last year, but we have a much larger team this year, so I think we’ll be alright. Primed to top 2011, one might hypothesize!

Now, mustache pics!

Last night in Portland, Movember sponsor TOMS hosted a rad launch party at Blake. The party was fantastic—free booze, free booze, free mustache trims, and just a great opportunity to hang with some rad Mo Bros and Mo Sistas.

Take a look at a few snapshots from the shindig…

Giggles the clown gives Katie a makeshift mo.

I sat down with the uber-mustachioed barber for a little mustache consultation and conversation.

I was told that I’d done a great job shaping my mo on my own and all I needed to do was give it time to grow. Looks like the past few years of Movember growing have given me a grooming edge. I mean, look at that dude’s ‘stache! A guy with those whiskers says all you need to do is grow, well… you listen.

No ‘stache shaping, but some eyebrow waxing… I was already sitting down, so what the hell!

Portland Mo Bro Rob Hennis gets a trim.

Bartenders mixing (free!) manly mustache drinks!

Free Mo photobooth!

I highly recommend hitting a local Movember event if you have the chance. It’s nice to hang out with people who get why you’re growing a mustache all month long! Plus, fun! And who doesn’t like that?!
