Ethan Zohn, Survivor Raising Money with His Mustache

Ethan Zohn from the hit reality show Survivor and survivor of cancer, that hit him twice, has decided that he is going to grow a mustache for the men’s cancer charity, Movember.

“As a full-time cancer crusher, I’m always looking for fun ways to get involved with the fight against cancer,” Zohn tells PEOPLE in the clip above. “What better than to have an excuse to let yourself get really hairy for cancer research?”

We recently caught up with Zohn at MiN New York — an apothecary in SoHo — where the star got a little facial hair TLC courtesy of men’s groomer Kumi Craig. Though she kept his mo intact, she cleaned up his growing beard and just trimmed his ‘stache, since as part of the Movember challenge, Zohn has to keep his mustache growing for the 30 days of November.

“Now that it’s getting a little more full and hairy, it’s exciting,” Zohn says. “My girlfriend [fellow Survivor star Jenna Morasca] likes it … although she jokes that I look like a bum walking around the street. But she’s getting used to it.”

Though Zohn wasn’t able to recruit any friends or family members to join him in the facial hair fun — “It didn’t go over so well for them,” he jokes — he’s just feeling happy to have his health, and to be helping other men in need.

“For me, to be able to even grow my facial hair is a pretty big deal,” he says proudly. Hear more from Zohn in the clip above, and to help the Movember movement, visit movember.com.

Phyllis Logan, Downton Abbey For Dementia Awareness

Phyllis Logan, who stars on the hit show in the UK has decided to be the front women for the Dementia Awareness program.

This program raises money to support funds for people who suffer from Dementia, the money goes to funding, so that they can also support specialist that specialize in mental health issues.

Contact Music reports: Downton Abbey star Phyllis Logan is calling on the U.K. Government to help dementia sufferers as she fronts a campaign to raise awareness of the debilitating condition.

The Scottish actress, who plays housekeeper Mrs. Hughes in the hit period drama, launched Dementia Uk‘s Time For A Cuppa campaign on Wednesday (21Nov12) to raise money to fund teams of specialist mental health nurses.

The cause is close to Logan’s heart as she spent 10 years nursing her mother-in-law through the illness, which affects brain function and causes symptoms including memory loss and disorientation.

She says, “I really feel there has to be joined-up thinking on the part of the Government, hospitals and other organisations so that sufferers and their carers are offered the very best care and support.”

The campaign, which encourages supporters to throw fundraising tea parties, will run from 1-8 March 2013. Last year (12) it raised $87,561 (£54,820) for the charity.

Robert Redford Unveils Eco College Program

Robert Redford an Environmentalist has decided it was time to team up with Pitzer College to maintain the Southern California sustainability, for the Robert Redford Conservancy.

Ecorazzi reports: The program aims to “prepare students to create solutions for the most challenging and urgent sustainability problems facing the planet today. Research and studies from the Conservancy will influence regional, national and global policymaking.”

Redford has been a passionate advocate for environmental issues for decades, so it’s no surprise he’d attach his name to a program that hopes to create the future leaders of the movement. The program is still in the preparation phase and won’t have students enrolled in courses until the fall of 2014.

While at the press conference to announce the Conservancy, Redford also talked about his take on how the current political landscape will impact the environment. He told The Hollywood Reporter, “Now I’m hopeful that [Obama] is going to take what his words were and put some teeth behind them.”

On climate change, the actor and activist said, “It’s been tied up for so long, it’s been bottled up for so long, it takes awhile to undo things. Particularly when you have elements still in play there that are living in the 1950s. And their points of view are so narrow and so ideologically driven that it’s not likely you’re going to see much change there. As a matter of fact, it might provoke them to be even more contentious. So I guess I put my hope more in the people, not so much in current government.”

As many environmentalists know, if you wait for the government to lead, you’ll end up sitting in one place. Throughout history the people have taken the lead on social and environmental issues and watched the government lose its breath trying to catch up. As long as they get there, right?
