A PSA, only 100x better and with prizes.

So, unless you have been living under a rock (and it’s OK if you have because that sounds kind of cozy and the rent is for sure cheaper than it would be if you lived in a real apartment), we are all gearing up for Movember!

Today, Le Clown is outlining all the plans he’s laid for this More Than A Fundraiser. They may or may not involve prizes for participants.

Michael, look at Second Lunch banner!

OK, I won’t beat around the bush. They do involve prizes. I won’t be coy about it. And I’m providing one of them.

I write a lot of things. I write about beer cans in my lunch bag. I write about call girls in Korea. I write about how I made a baby, popped her out, and am now trying to raise her to hate Betty Draper as fervently as I do. Priorities.

But what I really want to write about is YOU! That’s why three people who donate to the US Bloggers for Movember team page will get posts written ALL about them! And I’m not talking about dinky 150 word posts (unless that’s you’re kind of thing). You get to choose the photos I include too. I won’t call you out if they are of you 10 years and 30 pounds ago. Your secret’s safe with me.

The winners will be chosen at random at the end of Movember. Here’s more! You don’t even have to be a blogger for me to write about you! In fact, I think we’d all like to hear about a normal person for a change.

So please, Like us on Facebook and donate to this great cause. Let’s be honest, working towards a cure for prostate cancer is way better than having a blog post written about you.

But not by much.

On an unrelated note, I was out walking with C the other day, and what did we find? A real coffee shop just opened within walking distance of our apartment! This is such a big deal that I had to tell you. A non sequitur, yes, but when I think of prizes, my mind immediately goes to coffee. It’s a trained response.

    1. Maybe I won’t shave my legs for a month? Ewww. No. JUST NO.

  2. “A normal person for a change?” Bloggers aren’t normal? That hurts. It’s true, but it still hurts.

    1. It pained me to write that.

  3. Isn’t coffee a response for almost anything?
    Already donated, don’t use facebook. But looking forward to your write ups!

    1. You are a wise soul for not using Facebook.

  4. I like the idea of writing a post about the winners – that’s quite a good idea for a blog post anyway, I know lots of people I could embarrass with that. Anyhoo, being in the UK I think I’m going to have to donate through our usual channels here but applaud your initiative and look forward to seeing the results!

    1. Thank you for donating! Every little bit helps.

  5. 1st of all, I want to say that I think more people should rock rocks, because rocking rocks rocks.

    Now that’s out of the way, I just really think it’s awesome that so many people are in on the Movember conspiracy.

    It’s a really cool prize by the way. I liked your page on facebook with my wife’s facebook-account (I don’t have one, but now you see how dedicated I am), but I can’t seem to figure out where the donationbox is.

    So, hello!

    1. Nevermind, figured it out. Donated to US and CA :)

      1. Better get ready for a write-up! ;D

        1. Seriously! I already won? I don’t know what to say, I guess I want to thank my parents for not supporting me during the donation I made and making me stubborn enough to go through with it anyway! I want to thank the lOrd (with a capital ‘O’), but most of all, I want to thank me. Because I FKKN ROKK. I rokk so hard that when I bump my head it sounds like thunder. Yes, I do. Yes… I do.

          1. You haven’t officially won yet. Have to wait until the end of the month. But you are so close I can taste it ;D

    2. That is some serious dedication. You rocking rock my rocks. I don’t know what that really means, but you get the idea.

  6. I’m totally normal.

    1. Sure you are, dear. So am I.

    1. What did it feel like? I don’t remember my days of normalcy.

  7. I can vouch that this is a SOLID prize.

    1. Thank you! Also, totally off the subject but I saw your Chicky Baby costume of Pee Wee’s FB page. Too cool!

      1. Squeee! Thanks! Eebs is starting of WAY cooler than I did! Her future is so bright.

  8. You guys are so good and dedicated. I don’t know how you find time to keep up with everything. But we’re grateful that you do. :)

    1. Thanks. All I can say YO that is that I haven’t cleaned my bathroom in several months.

  9. Cool!! Can’t wait to read about these peeps!!

    1. It’s gonna be fun!

  10. Well, I should have read your post before making my donation! I donated to the general fund. Didn’t know there was a team?! I always feel like the geeky kid saying “Can I play, too!? Huh? Please?” I’m so out of it.

    1. Dude, you are in. As long as you donated, I am putting you in the fishbowl ;D

  11. I’d like to request that you paint me as a feminist Wonder Woman with a drinking problem.

    1. I think i may do that whether you donate or not.

  12. A REAL coffee shop, like…non-Starbucks? With couches, a book exchange, board games, and poetry slams? It’s my dream to open up a shop just like the one I hung out in as a teenager, but cooler. I might be a little too passionate about this. Out of everything you wrote, this is what I choose to comment on.
    Whichever person gets to have you write about them is lucky, indeed.

    1. Weeeeeell, it wasn’t that real. But it did have an espresso machine, a kindly guy behind the counter, and no Starbucks swag in sight. I live in a small town, so I will take that.

      1. I would take that any day.

  13. “I think we’d all like to hear about a normal person for a change.”

    Preach it sister.

    1. It’s so true. I want to know how the other half lives.

  14. Hooray prizes! I am ready to see the winners already, and we are only one day in! I am so impatient.

    1. Prizes are why I get up in the morning. They are the best!

      1. It’s like hitting a WordPress pinata up in here!

  15. You know, come to think of it, living under a rock would be kind of cozy.

    Zach wants to grow a moustache, but he has so many work obligations this month he has to keep shaving. I’m not shaving my legs this week while he’s out of town, but that’s as far as I’ll go. haha

    1. Ben shaved his mustache at the beginning of the month so now he just has a full beard and no mustache. He looks Amish.

  16. [...] few other blog posts to check out regarding Movember: Squidoo; Clown on Fire; The Waiting; ARKive and Problogger. There are so many more, just go out and [...]

  17. Great post! And a great cause!
