The campaign of No Shave November started out as an awareness stunt in Australia in 1999. The month long event has really picked up since 2004. No Shave November is all about raising awareness of the important issues that are currently faced by men around the world. If you are a man, and want to raise awareness about men's health, this event is perfectly suited for your participation.

Here, we discuss the concept and basic details of No Shave November in greater detail. We also present a few important points in regards to how you should take part in this activity in this ongoing month.

Understanding No Shave November

No Shave November is an event in which men are encouraged to grow their moustaches and beards, by staying away from shaving for the entire month. The main idea behind it is to support the awareness campaigns regarding the problems faced by men all around the world. The main problems in this list are prostate cancer and depression, among many others.

No Shave November has gained popularity and is supported by many important organizations. Google Chrome took part in the campaign in 2011 and created a video that received over one million views. Companies such Qantas Airlines, Carlsberg Group and Royal Mail are among the ones that have supported this campaign over the years.

In the United States, The LIVESTRONG Foundation and the Prostate Cancer Foundation actively support the No Shave November event. The concept has really picked on in the United States in the past few years, with many famous men supporting the cause. Currently, the event is held around the world by the Movember Foundation, which is ranked amongst the top 100 NGOs of the world.

Why Participate in No Shave November?

The main reason for participating in this event should always be to support the cause of raising awareness. Many men around the world suffer from prostate cancer, which can especially cause them to lose their hair. By allowing your facial hair to grow naturally, you can show support to the people who have lost them due to cancer.

The idea is also to donate the money that you usually spend on shaving to an organization that takes care of such patients. There are over 2,000 pages on the Movember website that raise awareness about these issues and provide ways to help different charities around the world. The concept is to support any one of them.

Raising Awareness

You automatically raise awareness when you do not shave in order to take part in this global activity. It motivates people around you to ask questions about your facial hair, in return giving you the chance to tell them everything about this wonderful cause. However, as a participant one needs to learn more about the cause such as the suffering of men from issues such as depression.

In the United States, the campaign is often attached to supporting the military personnel as well. These people often face stress and other mental issues after taking part in different campaigns. It is important for men to find a charity this November and support it in their own unique way if possible.
