This November there are bigger things to be concerned with other than who to vote for or what dishes to make for the big feast. To shave, or not to shave. It’s an important decision.  November is the month the burly men of Sahuaro get to show off their lumberjack beards while the baby-faced boys check for hairs on their chins. Actually, No-Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants (women can participate as well!) forgo shaving in order to kickstart conversation and raise cancer awareness.  No-Shave November asks men to donate the money that they would spend on their shaving supplies for their month; the funds would go to people who are fighting cancer.

The goal for No-Shave November participants is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, and something many cancer patients lose during chemotherapy.  Everyone can get involved.  Participate by growing a beard, growing a sweet mustache, letting those legs go natural, and skipping that waxing appointment. Put down your razor and set up your own personal No-Shave November fundraising page.  If you’re not ready to get hairy, sit back and support someone who is.

The Movember Foundation is for all the dads, brothers, sons and friends in your life. They work to make a difference for men’s health – in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and
suicide prevention.It began in Australia in 2006. The Movember Foundation raised up to $837 million across more than 20 other countries. 

Mark Hedstrom, the Movember spokesman said his organization expects up to 40,000 “Mo Bros” and “Mo Sistas” to participate. Each participant has to set up a fundraising page online, and they are also hoping to raise $100 million globally this year.

If you do No-Shave November, you are supporting the benefits of cancer awareness.
