No Shave November : Finally November Month Started and it has heralded the much-acclaimed game of ‘no shave November’. Besides all the fun and madness that goes into continuing this challenge, there is a very serious social message behind it. According to No Shave November’s website, you’re supposed to donate the money you save while avoiding your shaving products to foundations and charities that focus on cancer prevention. Big charities that heavily contribute to this cause include the American Cancer Society, Prevent Cancer Foundation and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. For more options, scan through this Charity Watch list that also includes ratings for each organization.
This campaign also got men to donate, what they would otherwise spend on grooming their beards to the patients who have lost their hair as part of their cancer treatment. This month extends to women too, maybe even more so because we tend to spend more money on waxing, shaving and grooming our bodies. So celebrate in this month and join in on the activism!
In 2009, No Shave November started with 50 Facebook followers – mainly family and friends.Now, the group has more than 32,000 Facebook followers and has helped to raise well over $100,000 for the American Cancer Society. In this year alone, they’ve raised $90,000 .
