    Lads and hairy lasses, tis near on the season of the scruff, the handlebar, the drive to help all those that can, could, or want to grow hair.

    As in years passed members are invited to donate shave, and man related items up for auction. Auctions will be limited to the month of November, Movember, and each will be described by the donor with respect to duration of auction.
    Fund transfer, shipping etc, also worked out on an item by item basis.
    Stay tuned to this thread for information and items as the month approaches.
    As always,, donate, and bid with your hearts, and share your experiences, amongst friends. Both virtual and in reality..
    Cheers.

    As usual, I will offer the Razorfeld Strop Sock for those in a mood to spruce up their shaving den. I will state at this early date that I might not be offering these in future years as I will attain my 90th year come January and am finally looking at slowing down (but not stopping) my activities. Shave on!

    Richard, the fact you can still thread a needle at 90, something I could not master at 15, let alone wield it so artfully..
    We should all be so lucky.
    And I thank you for the offer again this season!

    I will be getting together what has been left in my possession from the Donations of the Giveaway that we used to have monthly. I will make groups of items and post them up when the month gets going so stay tuned.
    And thanks to Mike for keeping this "Raising funds for Movember" Going. Remember it's not about what something is worth, but how much you can bid to help someone in need.
    We have lost good members in the past that might have been helped with more awareness of Men's Health. So let's try to do what we can to continue what we have done in previous years. And remember the ones we have lost.
    It's just Sharpening, right?

    Good on ya Jerry.
    Will make for a more spirited month!
    Hopefully a mod can put a front page reference to the thread for the month as well.
    Need to get the word out to our Mo bro’s.

    I have been donating some blades and scales in the past.
    I have an idea to offer-up some nice things. Might still do some projects/parts as well.

    The shipping across the pond has gotten silly expensive so I figure I will ask for Paypal F&F to me separately to cover actual ship price outside of Conus.

    We need to start advertising this thing right now. A spot on the front page running now thru the end of Nov is really paramount.

    Whomever is in charge of the articles there should step up and make a splash for this!!

    TBH, I have considered listing on Ebay and earmarking the whole sum to Movember.
    If the forum itself cannot promote it fast, it will be down to just a few bidders.

    I will consider my donations as November 1st arrives.

    Would be nice to spread the word even to the fbook group as well. Just to have them pop back in for the month.
    A lot of folks left during the Covid debates. Would be nice if they got over things enough to join in again.

    Yes! Let's give and give more and bid and bid more. Harass one another for a month! Talk some trash!
    It's FUN!

    It IS fun and if last year is any indication, there’s some fine stuff to be had. Aside from the great feeling of supporting a worthy cause, I know I’m extremely happy with my winnings from last time.

    Can’t wait for the games to begin.
