NO SHAVE NOVEMBER

https://no-shave.org/

No-Shave November is a non-profit organization devoted to growing cancer awareness. The goal during the month-long journey is for participants to forgo shaving, embrace their hair, which many cancer patients lose, and let it grow wild and free in their honor. The point is to donate the money one would typically spend on shaving and grooming, to support cancer prevention, research, and education, to save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.
