NO SHAVE NOVEMBER – Rules and Info
No Shave November – A Unique Way to Grow Cancer Awareness. Let it Grow and Join the Fight Against Cancer!
No Shave November 2015 is in full swing and so many gentlemen I know are already rocking cool beards right now – the likes of Mr. EndzMeg, Mr. N. Enyi, Mr. KevinNaty, Mr. DMoore, Mr. Aka Nt, President NM, Mr. Dodo, Mr. Bruno, Mr. JayIseghohi, Mr. Bishie, Mr. Kenny Hermit, Dr. Baruu, my friend Mr. Liyi Vic etc.
These gentlemen and many more have embarked on one month journey of NO SHAVING!! [Well, I’ve been on this journey for a couple of years now … 😉 ]. For many who have never attained to a full beard in the past, this is a good excuse to let the scruff begin without embarrassment.
So, what is No Shave November all about?
The official website for the cause reads: 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.
As you can see, No Shave November is not just about growing crazy facial hair. This 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 around for 12 years, starting in 2003. At the time it wasn’t attached to men’s health, it was just a bit of fun with the mates, but now it has become one of the biggest yearly campaigns for awareness about men’s health issues.
In Nigeria today a number of men are taking the growing of a beard seriously, a thing of pride. They are referred to as The Beard Gang or The Beardy Bunch.
I am proud to be part of this movement – fully registered (as you can see below), I suggest you join in as well . Visit my No-Shave November page : HERE and let’s do this together – Let it Grow and Join the Fight Against Cancer!

For others it is a viable way to accomplish some good will and resources for what many feel is an under publicized area of medicine.
