'No-Shave November': This is why you should sport your beard and mustaches this NovemberMen across the world actively participate every year in No shave- November campaign. It is an initiative started by the Movember foundation charity in 2009 to raise awareness about prostrate and testicular cancer and also mental health issues such as depression .

Till date the organization has raised over $2 million dollars. The money is being used to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle. As part of initiative men avoid shaving and grooming in November and let it grow wild and free.

They actively embrace their hair and spend the expenses saved to cancer patients who have lost their hair during chemotherapy treatments. Many men actively take up the challenge globally. 

The rules are pretty simple, just put down your razor for 30 days and donate your monthly hair maintenance expenses to the cause. You can also participate in the campaign by registering in the website https://no-shave.org/  where you can find complete details.


In the website if you navigate to the leaderboard option, you can find out the total amount raised for the campaign. At present, No shave November campaign is actively associated with 4 organizations to achieve the mission. This includes American Cancer Society, Prevent Cancer Foundation, Fight Colorectal Cancer community and St Jude childrens research hospital.
