NO SHAVE NOVEMBER
Hello beauties! It’s No Shave November. It’s only the first week of November and I’ve already seen some hilarious instagram pictures. Most of us know No Shave November as a fun, month long challenge where men stop shaving their facial hair and women stop shaving their legs. However, it’s main purpose is actually to raise awareness for cancers that affect men. The challenge is to get men to stop shaving for the month, to raise awareness, and also to donate what they would have spent on grooming products to research. You can read more about the origins here. As a women who is all about fighting cancer, and who loves beards, No Shave November inspired me to write this blog.
No Shave November
According to the American Cancer Society’s website, “No-Shave November is a web-based organization devoted to raising cancer awareness and supportive funds by putting a fun twist on the month of November.”
How awesome is this!? This has got to be one of the funnest ways to raise awareness and funds for cancer. The men get to relax and stop shaving. And we women get to drool over their beards. That’s if, you’re into beards like I am. 😛 How do you feel about your man with a long beard, or more of a beard if he already has one?
Ladies, I’m curious: are you down to stop shaving for the WHOLE month? For the cause? I’d love to read in the comments. I, for one, am on the fence. On one side it’d be nice to stop worrying about shaving for a whole month. And it’s wintertime anyway. On the other hand, I’m not sure how long I could stand being prickly. If you’re like me, and don’t think you can go a whole month without shaving, you could always donate to The American Cancer Society to show your support. And of course, drool at all the facial hair this No Shave November.
Remember everyone! Stay beautiful inside and out. And don’t forget to get checked. 🙂
