The concept most of us aware that 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.
But how it started?
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 to grow awareness of prostate cancer. Over 6 years this became a popular thing to do among many throughout the country.
Sadly many men don’t even realize why they do it. The great tradition is lost by the hype created by social media. Hope people understand the basic need of No shave November.
