The aim of these annual events is to raise awareness of health.
The Movember Foundation is focused on men’s health, and NoShavember aims to fight cancer regardless of gender.
What started as an idea of bringing back the mustache grew into a movement to raise awareness about prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention in men.
To enter, let your facial hair flow and grow a mustache or beard. You can also raise funds to help raise awareness about men’s health and fight cancer.
Right from the start as a two-man operation, the non-profit organization has developed into a global force. In 2012, the Movember Foundation was named one of the 100 best non-governmental organizations in the world by NGO Advisor. More than 20 countries participate in Movember each year, and the organization has raised over $ 700 million, according to its website.
NoShavember, also known as No-Shave November, was founded to help raise awareness about cancer.
The project was started in 2009 by the children of Matthew Hill, who died of colon cancer in 2007. According to its website, it was launched in 2009 to raise funds for charity.
The concept is for people to ditch their razors and hug their hair, which many cancer patients lose during chemotherapy.
The nonprofit encourages people to donate the money that could be spent on shaving and grooming to aid cancer prevention, research, and education.
