Facial hair challenged readers might not be aware that in some follicle circles November has been renamed Movember (as in the month of the Mo—short for moustache.)

The basic gist is, starting Movember 1 clean-shaven participants begin to grow their facial hair entries. By the end of the month, competitions determine the best Mo Bros at Gala Parties around the world in categories ranging from Best Mo in Character to Miss Movember and the coveted Man of Movember 2010. Funds raised benefit men's health organizations worldwide like the Prostate Cancer Foundation and Livestrong. Last year they raised $42 million for charity.

To join in he fun, you need to register at and then start growing. Most events doesn't happen until late November or early December, so that gives you over three weeks to grow, groom, trim, and shape to take home to top prize.

There are also some cool tools and videos on the website to give you inspiration. The best one is an iPhone app that allows you to photograph the growth each day and make a stop motion movie documenting your mo.

The party in Los Angeles takes place at Avalon on December 3, 2010 at 10:00 PM, 1735 Vine St, Los Angeles, CA. Check out the website for a party near you.
