Mustache leads to awareness campaign

Perhaps there is nothing more manly than a mustache.
Ask 37-year-old Victoria resident Carl Ruschhaupt, who has been growing his mustache this month for Movember, a movement to raise awareness about men's health.
"When you don't shave, people will say something like, 'Hey, that looks dumb. Why are you growing a mustache?'"
This gets the conversation going, he said.
No Shave November is not a part of the Movember charity, and, in fact, isn't a charity at all, just good fun.
But Ruschhaupt likes that his mustache can stir conversations about men's health.
"Men don't talk a lot about their health," he said.
Here are photos of men growing facial hair for either charity or just for fun.
