We all know about “No Shave November”  as an activity in which we have to grow our beard and don’t have to shave. But hardly anyone knows when, why and how No Shave November started in the first place. Yes in the beginning when the No-Shave November was founded on Facebook in 2009 no noble cause was associated. But later the moment was linked with the American Cancer Society. For a noble cause of generating revenue for those who are facing this crackling disease.

No Shave November is to grow awareness keeping our hair, which all the cancer patients lose. And to donate the money that we saved for helping the patients having cancer which otherwise would have been used for taking off the hair.

Even last year many Indian celebs from B-town came forward to support the cause. And when celebs publicize something it is bound to hit the center. And previous year India was able to generate a considerable amount of charity.

Here is more information about the moment from the official website:


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. Donate the money you typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.


Participate by growing a beard, cultivating a mustache, letting those legs go natural, and skipping that waxing appointment. Put down your razor and set up your own personal No-Shave November fundraising page. If you’re not ready to get hairy, sit back and support someone who is.


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. Strict dress-code at work? Don’t worry about it! We encourage participation of any kind; grooming and trimming are perfectly acceptable.
