Instead of plastic ribbons, we will shave on the first and then grow our 'staches proudly for the full month. (I'm personally thinking about some sweet handlebars.) If you wish to join our team, you can head here to do so. Even if you don't wish to sign up via the site and still wish to participate, we will be holding a front page forum for you guys to upload pictures of your progress each week throughout the month. Head to the replies for some more details about the cause, and get ready to grow. Thank you...
