Movember and Men's Health

Recommended Posts

As dads, we all have one thing in common: we are men. Society has placed an expectation on us. We are expected to provide, to protect, to be strong, to be "manly". But we are human. We are frail, weak, flawed, imperfect. So we hide our weakness until it eats at us from the inside, until, like a tree rotted from the inside, we fall.

 

This needs to stop, and that's what Movember is about. I'm raising awareness of men's health and suicide prevention with Standing Stone Games and the Movember Foundation. This morning, I shaved off my beard and mustache. Over the course of Movember, I will be growing back, just as i hope awareness and support for men's health grows.

 

You can lend your support by donating to the Movember Foundation: https://mobro.co/toanstation?mc=1

 

If your donation is $10 or more, you'll also be contributing to my personal health as I'll do an extra set of exercises on my stream (https://twitch.tv/toanstation). Yes, I realize that exercises could easily take over my gaming stream. Bring it. I dare you.

I love Movember! Gave myself a bunch of excuses this year why I didn't have time/energy to do it properly but then just a few days ago realized I was full of crap and the least I could do was shave and post a few things on social media to drum up some awareness and donations.

I cheated a bit this morning and shaved my beard but left my already grown mo. My daughter said I should shave that too so I might tonight...can't decide!

I'll have to try and tune into you stream to check out the progress. Keep up the great work and good luck!

Thank you for your support, Wright, and for making me work out!

Remember, if you donate $10 or more, not only will you be supporting men's health, but you'll also be supporting my health by making me work out more.

I will be streaming over at https://twitch.tv/ddostream from 4:00 PM EST to 8:00 PM EST today in support of Movember and men's health. This is a great opportunity to support a fellow dad and men's health. Also, if you've ever been curious about Dungeons & Dragons Online, this is a great opportunity to check it out, ask questions, and even get a leg-up as I will have DDO Points to give away!

It was fun. Had good viewer numbers and ran the Vault of Night quest chain with some other streamers and viewers. Didn't get any donations, though.
