A (belated) Happy Movember

We at Urban General Store Headquarters have long been fascinated with the mustache.  Be it Stephanie's long string of hirsute Halloween costumes (Fr. Guido Sarducci, Mr. T., Animal) or Rebecca's childhood obsession with Magnum P.I. So you can imagine how excited we were to learn about MOVEMBER (the month formerly known as November), a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men's health.

Unfortunately, we learned about it too late.

While we like to think we keep up on any and all social media/pop culture minutia, we missed this one. Well, until today, November 30. The last day of Movember.

Blame it on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, or a write-up about our Bacon items in the Chicago Tribune. Whatever it was... we missed it.

But, in this season of giving and our love of deadline extensions, we'd like to continue Movember for a few more days. We will donate 5% of any purchase of our novelty Mustache items now through Friday, December 3, 2010 to the Movember Charities.

Check out all our Mustache related items at www.urbangeneralstore.com. Then add your own 'Stachetastic photo on our Facebook Page.
