No Shave November
The weather is getting colder, the spooky season is winding down, and the clocks are about to fall back, so that only means one thing! No-Shave November! Logistically, No-Shave November makes a lot of sense. Hey, the temperature is dropping, and a beard is the ultimate form of facial insulation, right? Well, there’s actually more to it than that. Not only is No-Shave November a no brainer when it comes to affordable faceware, it’s the ultimate form of raising cancer awareness. So whether you’re tired of drug-store razor prices, or just want to try out a new look, there’s lots to talk about.
So, what is No-Shave November?
No—Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness.
The way it works is this: you set up a page at no-shave.org, and set up a personal page. And that’s the hardest part! The rest is easy. Now that your fundraising page is set up, you just share it with everybody you know, and put the razor down. Donations are twofold: people who want to support your hairy self-exploration are welcome to leave donations to support the cause, and you are also encouraged to look at that bank statement, and donate what you would have spent on hair-maintenance expenses to the fundraiser. It’s that simple!
What does No-Shave November have to do with Men’s Health
No-Shave November is devoted to growing cancer awareness, raising funds to support cancer prevention, research, and education. While No-Shave November benefits both men and women, the movement was created to raise awareness of men’s health issues, specifically Prostate and Testicular Cancer. Men are challenged to grow out their facial hair, beard, mustache, whatever they can stand!
