No Shave November is a real practice. It is a unique way to raise cancer awareness of mens health issues. However, it isn't only limited to men refusing to shave, ladies, you can participate too. By embracing our hair in the month of November, we can better appreciate what we take for granted and remember those affected by cancer, those who lose their locks. The American Cancer Society try to raise awareness and you can help! Do your part by donating the money you would usually spend on shaving and grooming for a month to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.

Participate by growing a beard, cultivating a mustache, letting those legs get mangly, and skipping that waxing appointment. If you're not bold enough to have to explain everyday that it is not a faux-pas but rather a choice to grow your hair, you could simply donate to support the cause.  With your help we can get the word out.  Every donation means more resources to fight cancer, and remember to say who you're growing for!
