If you have been wondering why all of the men in your life seem to be sprouting more and more facial hair these days, wonder no more – it’s Movember! (Also known as No Shave November.)
The meaning behind Movember is raise awareness for prostate cancer and testicular cancer and began in Australia more than 11 years ago. Males participating not only talk about why they are participating but also get other men to start talking about men’s health and cancer awareness. Men participating are also encouraged to donate what they would otherwise spend on grooming/shaving to the American Cancer Society.
Don’t worry, ladies, you are encouraged to participate as well… you can forego shaving your legs or cancel the waxing/threading appointment that you have planned for the month.
