Movember Earth

Invented in 1999 by a group of Australians, the Movember Foundation fights to raise awareness and funds for a variety of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer. The word “Movember” is a combination of “Moustache” and “November”; growing a moustache during November is essentially the trademark symbol of the group.
GEB reader ‘Damien’ is a participant in the event, and decide to help give it a bit of promotion. Similar to our Halloween tradition of turning Google Earth into a pumpkin, Damien turned the earth in a giant smiley face with a moustache!
