NO SHAVE NOVEMBER

A unique way to grow cancer awareness

 

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.

In Pakistan, this has created a new hype and men are going all crazy for this the whole year but the real problem is that many of them don’t know the original concept behind this and they grow their facial hair just to full their Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat stories.

 

So, how did no shave November start? No Shave November started after a father in Chicago passed away from colon cancer. His 8 sons and daughters started this campaign in 2009 in honor of their father. Over 6 years this became a popular thing to do among many throughout the country.

There are a lot of things that people don’t tell you before you decide to participate in this official month of no shaving. From trends to setbacks and to just straight opinions. Even if you like facial hair on a guy, or as a guy it only goes to a certain point. No one likes beards or mustaches that look unkept. Many girls like a man with a well groomed beard, but if you happen to be one who doesn’t, chances are “No Shave November” is not your month.

 

In the end, The month “NO SHAVE NOVEMBER” is also known as MOVEMBER and if you are following this trend, you should make sure that you are donating that money that you are saving from not shaving to cancer hospitals and NGOs.
