As I’m sure that most of you are aware November is the month of facial hair. The two main campaigns are Movember No-Shave November. Both involve growing facial hair, and both raise consciousness for mens health issues. But there are few differences. The idea is that if you are bold enough to grow than people are going to want to talk to you and ask you about your awesome facial hair. This gives you the opportunity to tell them why you are growing and what your cause is and thus to bring awareness to people.
Movember is the combination of mustache and November. This particular cause involves goring a mustache and raising awareness for prostate and testicular cancer along with mental health issues and challenges. It state red back in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia and has grown into a global charity. You are allowed to shave and trim the other areas just not your stache. Fellow mustache growers are known as MoBros.
No-Shave November involves not shaving at all and letting a full beard grow as wild and unruly and as manly as possible. No-Shave started in 2009 and and is involved with the American Cancer Society.
So some of you guys out there can’t grow facial hair because of work or genetics. But there are ways of of supporting these issues. Go to any of the sites listed about and buy merchandise or share and show your support. Even some women are getting involved and not shaving their legs, I don’t endorse that however. Still hairy legs on a woman is nowhere as sexy as a man with facial hair. Just saying
