Before you get ready for this challenge/campaign and start browsing your internet to choose the look you want after you grow your beard, let us walk you through the real origin behind why this whole thing started at the first place.
No-Shave November is month long journey amid which members swear off shaving and grooming with the end goal to raise awareness among the people about prostate and testicular cancer. Take in more about how you can also get engrossed and start getting hairy for a whole month.
Men from all around the world spend very small amount of money on grooming and shaving their beard everyday. Those few bucks may not mean anything to the man spending that money for his beard but it might mean a lot to someone who is fighting the battle of life. This purpose of “No Shave November” started off with an intention to spread awareness among the people about prostate and testicular cancer.
One out of seven men is suffering from prostate cancer and there is very little that we can do about it. Thus this whole campaign started with the intention of doing the very least possible, i.e, to save a few bucks from not shaving for a whole month and donating that money to organizations who help men fight prostate cancer. Your least can mean the most to them.
However, whether to donate money is your choice. No one can force you to give away some amount from your hard earned money but the important part is to let people know. The main purpose of this movement is to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle. Growing a long beard grabs attention and you can make good of that attention by spreading the awareness to the society and fight for men’s health. Take it in a fun and casual way, grow your beard and style a new look on you, but do it for a good cause.
Put down your razor for a month and donate that amount to someone who needs it more by setting up your own personal No-Shave November fundraising. If you’re not ready to get hairy, sit back and support someone who is!
