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!”
Some people participate in Movember instead. The goal there is to grow a mustache 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 so I go the no-shave route instead. If you ask my Wife she’d say cause I’m lazy. She’s not entirely wrong in that sentiment but this is something I feel pretty strongly about so I go all in during No Shave November (and often during DecemBEARD but that might be out of laziness 😉 )
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.
This post 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’ll do it.
