No-Shave November is more than just a trend, it is a cause. It all started in the year 2004, as an initiative of the Movember Foundation to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s suicide.
The month-long journey asks men to forgo shaving their facial hair to raise money to fight cancer. The cause received an extra hype, thanks to Social Media, where men started showing off their goatees, mustaches and all varieties of facial hair.
