The main purpose behind ‘No-Shave November’ is to grow cancer awareness. The idea is for participants to let their hair grow wild and free – no shaving – no grooming.
No-Shave is a website dedicated to this cause in which participants can also start their own fundraising pages encouraging money donations that are used in support of cancer prevention, research, and education.
“Each day, 22,000 people die from cancer worldwide (WHO). There’s a good chance that someone you know and love will be affected by this disease. Nearly half of cancer diagnoses and deaths are preventable. No-Shave November’s mission is to not only raise funds for cancer research and treatment but to educate the population about preventative measures.”
In addition to No-Shave, there are other websites and organizations dedicated to this movement. Noshember put together a fun calendar to help you through the grueling, itching, unsightly unwanted hair in areas to keep you pushing strong to the finish line.
Everyone, young and old, male and female can participate in No-Shave-November by following this simple calendar of guidelines. The festivities shall unfold thusly:
November 1: Razors are stowed, indifference ignited. Noshember begins.
