Once again this year I am participating in No-Shave November. According to No-Shave.org, “No-Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness. Learn more about how you can get involved and start getting hairy!”
The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free. Donate the money you typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.
The rules of No-Shave November are simple: put down your razor for 30 days and donate your monthly hair-maintenance expenses to the cause. Strict dress-code at work? Don’t worry about it! We encourage participation of any kind; grooming and trimming are perfectly acceptable.
A similar activity, Movember, is an annual event involving the growing of mustaches during the month to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer and other male cancers, and associated charities. I’m not a mustache guy (I’d look even more like Paul Blart) so I go the no-shave route instead.
I do allow myself one small “cheat” when it comes to shaving my neck. If I didn’t take care of the neck beard I’d be this guy… and no one wants that.
Page will be updated throughout the month…
I’m typically not a big selfie guy but during No Shave November I make an exception.
Cancer sucks… if there’s anything I can do to combat it I’m all in.
