I’m sure you have been hearing a lot about No Shave November, and maybe you or your man has even participated. But do you really know what it is and how you can help?
Would you rather just watch than read? Check out my Facebook Live Video I had recently:
WHAT IS NO-SHAVE NOVEMBER?
No-Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness.
No-Shave November has been a tradition for many years, but it wasn’t until the fall of 2009 that members of the Chicagoland Hill family decided to use it as a means to raise money for charity. It was a project that held special meaning to the eight Hill children after their father, Matthew Hill, passed away from colon cancer in November 2007.
The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free.
Participate by growing a beard, cultivating a mustache, letting those legs go natural, and skipping that waxing appointment. So ladies, you’re NOT of the hook 😉
The rules of No-Shave November are simple: put down your razor for 30 days and donate your monthly hair-maintenance expenses to the cause.
WHERE DO THE PROCEEDS GO?
No-Shave November is proud to be working with the following organizations in 2018 to achieve their mission.
The Prevent Cancer Foundation® is one of the nation’s leading voluntary health organizations and the only U.S. nonprofit organization focused solely on cancer prevention and early detection.
At Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC), we find it unacceptable that the #2 cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. comes from a preventable disease. We want to see victory over colon and rectal cancers
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer.

What are men saying?
Here is what Mike had to say about this new Elixir-“ I am subscribed to the Dollar Beard Club, so every month a pay $7 for a beard balm and oil that I have to brush into my beard to keep it luscious (😂😂)… on the first day of using the beard elixir I canceled my subscription… it is that amazing!! My beard feels really conditioned without being oily and having a strong smell all day. If you know someone who has a beard I’m telling you they have heard of dollar beard club and they are probably subscribed… this is 100x better in every way and it’s not oily which was one thing I was so happy about.” -Mike Kuete
