Canadian lounging in briefs a Web hit

TORONTO, Oct. 11 (UPI) -- A Canadian man is using the Internet to let people watch him pad around his house in his underwear to raise money for cancer awareness.

The man, identified only as a 38-year-old University of Toronto employee named Mark who is a testicular cancer survivor, has set up www.guyathome.com. If he stays at home for 25 straight days and gets 25,000 "likes" on Facebook, underwear maker Stanfield's Canada will donate $25,000 to the Canadian Cancer Society for testicular cancer awareness

Through Day 5, Mark had more than 16,000 "likes," the Toronto Sun reported.

"It's been gangbusters, the support that we've got," Mark said Sunday. "It's been surprising and overwhelming. For me, it's just getting used to this world of living in a fishbowl and having everything you do be meaningful to people.

"As a testicular cancer survivor, it is important to me that young men are aware of the risks, especially because it can affect guys as young as 15.

"Hanging out at home in my underwear all day sounds great, but doing it for 25 days straight is going to be a challenge. I'm hoping to bring some awareness to a worthy cause that affects men of all ages in Canada."
