As you may have noticed, the B's have taken it upon themselves to team up with the Movember Foundation, who's goal is to change the face of men's health. Since 2003, the Movember Foundation has raised over $446MM to support "awareness and education, living with and beyond cancer, staying mentally healthy, living with and beyond mental illness and research". Since the beginning of the month, when the Bruins participated in this year's Gillette Shave Down, the B's have been growing their Mo's to help support the cause. As part of the month-long event, each player has set up a "MoBro" page, from which you can donate to their mustache.

If you'd like to support Men's Health alongside the Bruins, you can do it two ways:
1. Donate to the Bruin's Movember Team, who has already raised over $18,600 USD, making them the nation's 20th best Movember team (this includes every Movember team, not just the NHL), and best team in the NHL! As that total continues to rise, you can donate to the players Mustaches right now, by visiting http://bruins.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=74750&navid=DL|BOS|home .
2. Or, if you'd like to grow your own Mo, you can team up with the B's, and let others donate to your mustache by visiting http://us.movember.com/team/1248385 .
As another incentive, the team has been giving out prizes for lucky members. For this week's prize, raise $50 or more for a chance to win a Patrice Bergeron autographed picture (ends Friday, November 22nd, 12 PM). Plus, one grand prize will be given out, which includes tickets to an upcoming B's game, and a meet-and-greet with the players!
Or, you can donate to our very own writer, Christopher Feterowski's mustache, to support Movember, the B's, and the Bruins Life team! Do this by visiting http://mobro.co/itsthegrizz , or by writing a check to 'Movember', referencing his registration ID: 2173858 and mailing it to: Movember US, P.O. Box 1595, Culver City, CA 90232
