4
year Mo Bro
Joe Cousineau Hosting an event for Movember

$1,274

Target: $500
My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health
Prostate cancer

This is year 4 for me. Participating in Movember, be it growing a mo' or just sharing more with family and friends about men's health, cancers and mental health, has become an important part of my charitable outreach. The big event I'll be doing this year is a virtual concert, along with some conversations and posts on social media and email, to highlight this fantastic cause. Together we can make a difference for men's health – in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Help me stop men dying too young.

WE BLASTED THAT GOAL TO PIECES!!!
A big thank you to everyone for your contributions so far. I'll be sending out individual words of thanks in the coming week.
Also, a big thanks to those who were able to tune in to the virtual concert on IG Live, Saturday.

Keep encouraging the men in your lives to take care of their physical, mental and spiritual health. It's all connected together. Especially in these pandemic times, we have to take care of ourselves. Surround yourself with people who will do that and put some activities in the schedule that aren't work (exercise, leisure, music, games, good chats and laughs with family and friends).

Day 25: Moustache is pretty much back to normal, and you'll notice I started growing the beard back (see last post for reasons).

Been thinking about how thankful I am to have friends and family in my life who value exercise. It's something I struggle with making time for, even though I loved playing outside and doing lots of sports as a young Joe.

Playing with my daughter helps me get some exercise in, but, realistically, I would like to do more. That, coupled with healthy eating, would help me shed some extra pounds I'm carrying around, and help me feel healthier. I encourage y'all to think about your own exercise/eating habits, too!

Day 18: Movember has been in full effect for 18 days, and I'm pleased to say the moustache is levelling up. The upper lip's a little warmer, and now the sides are starting to come in. I suspect that, in a week's time, I'll be ready to start growing back the goatee area too. Reason being, our little baby boy's getting baptized in December so I have to look presentable for the pictures!

Your donations have been a highlight of my day, and I know they are going to do a lot of good for the guys struggling with their physical and mental health. Keep it going!

Day 12:
The moustache is filling out. I'm going to grow the sides more so I have connectors for the beard when I need them!

Thinking of all the guys out there who are living their lives but afraid to get a checkup, or to go to their next doctor's appointment, or to hear the news from their doctor, or showing up for their next dose of chemo or other treatments.

The brotherhood is real. We've got your back and every year, we're figuring this out to give men with these cancers more time to live life to the fullest. Proud to be a small part in the cause.

Day 6: People have been noticing the moustache is growing in. I've noticed I need a new electric razor cause mine's too dull to really clean up the rest of my face. Pretty scratchy!

On a men's health note: thinking about the importance of rest. This can be getting a good sleep (7 hrs min.) or taking time to rest the mind by listening to music, going for a walk, taking time to read or pray or work on a puzzle. These are good things for mental health. Lately, I've been trying to read more and have a novel going at all times. Nice break from reading on a screen!

Joe, there was a time, in a decade far, far, before when I would have given you a good run but that was then and this is now. Clearly the red is superior. I hope to post a photo tomorrow sometime. This was fun!! Dad

This moustache and beard growing business is getting serious again. Did another trim today, keeping neck and cheek hair down, to restart a thinner, cleaner beard for DecemBEARD!

Still pretty amazed with donations offered by family and friends. One more day to go. I'll be adding a donation from my own little family. Hoping for a few more dollars towards the men's health campaign.
Let's keep the conversation going all year long.

Day 21. The moustache is officially here. Let's keep the conversation going. Make your health a priority, guys, and, girls, encourage the guys to do just that! #mosforbros

Day 20, 2/3 of the way done and things are growing well. So thankful for all the donations received so far. I'll be sculpting the moustache shortly.

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of celebrating a family wedding. My wife's cousin and his bride got married Saturday evening in Wakefield and it was such a wonderful time. Plenty of dining, dancing and merriment had by all. Feeling that family support is important to maintaining health and, you know what, so is dancing. Wow! Burned a lot of calories, hehe.

Let's keep it going. 10 more days to grow, chat about men's health, and encourage one another to take care of ourselves better.

Note: As donations can be made privately, not all donations are displayed to the public.
