It is finally here, No Shave November.
No Shave November started in the early 2000s when a group of Australian men grew mustaches to raise awareness of Prostate Cancer and Depression in men. Now No Shave November is a world wide movement to raise money for cancer research and awareness. The below excerpt is from the No Shave November organizations website.
Each day, 22,000 people die from cancer worldwide (WHO). There’s a good chance that someone you know and love will be affected by this disease. Nearly half of cancer diagnoses and deaths are preventable. No-Shave November’s mission is to not only raise funds for cancer research and treatment but to educate the population about preventative measures.
For over six years, participants around the globe have put down their razors and foregone their hair appointments to join the fight against cancer. The No-Shave November campaign has successfully raised over $3.5 million dollars to combat this disease. Every dollar raised brings us one step closer in our efforts to fund cancer research and education, help prevent the disease, and aid those fighting the battle. Each whisker grown allows us to embrace our hair, which many cancer patients lose during treatment. Will you join me? Start by using the links to the right.
I am happy to announce that this year The Dapper Man will be joining the fight, we will be raising money to help The Prevent Cancer Organization, Fight Colorectal Cancer, and The St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
