The Meaning and Origin of
“No-Shave November” and “Movember”
It’s going to get hairy this month as men – and women – participate in No Shave November and Movember.
At some point in the last couple of years you have probably heard of No shave November which has gained popularity in North America. The whole purpose of No shave November is not to let your beards grow crazy, but to raise awareness for different kinds of cancer including prostate cancer. The goal is to donate the money you normally would use to get a haircut or groom your facial hair to St. Jude or other cancer research charities.
