No-Shave November is growing it back out to promote cancer awareness and raise funds for vital cancer research.
Emeryville, California Oct 31, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – Once a social media sensation that encouraged everyone to embrace a hairier lifestyle, No-Shave November has grown into a nonprofit that continues to make a difference in the field of cancer awareness. By utilizing a fun and ever-relevant viral fundraising campaign, No-Shave November prepares to launch its largest and most successful campaign yet.
As always, No-Shave November is for everybody. It’s not exclusive to mustache-twirling villains, bearded lumberjacks, Santa Clause, or any other facial hair stereotypes you can think of. Each participant, whether they be he/him, she/her, they/them is asked to grow out their hair however they can. Normal Hair, facial hair, chest hair, armpit hair, even ear hair, we don’t discriminate! Then, donate your saved cost of grooming to cancer awareness, research, prevention, and education. By donating and sharing your fuzzy journey throughout the month of November, you honor all those who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments.
The best way to get involved and become a No-Shaver is to register on our website (www.no-shave.org) as either an individual or a team. On your personal page, you will be able to track donations both personal and made by others who have contributed to your page throughout the duration of this year’s campaign. A team page allows you to keep track of both your personal and team members’ donations. Compete with other teams to see who can donate the most and determine who has the most luxuriant look by the end month! All No-Shave participants may opt to direct their donations and fundraising efforts to a specific participating nonprofit organization.
It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes all of us to fight back against a foe like cancer. That is why this year, No-Shave November is collaborating with even more like-minded nonprofits than ever before. We are proud and ready to get hairy with 13 remarkable non-profit organizations: AIM at Melanoma, American Cancer Fund, Be The Match Foundation, Fans for the Cure, Fight Colorectal Cancer, G02 Foundation for Lung Cancer, Kidney Cancer Association, National Foundation for Cancer Research, National LGBT Cancer Network, Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, Special Love Inc, Testicular Cancer Society, and Young Survival Coalition. If you find it hard to choose a nonprofit, no problem! You can donate towards this year’s grand total and your support will be split up evenly between all participating cancer-focused nonprofits.

So this November we encourage you to show you care with all that hair! Your donations are vital in the fight against cancer.
About No-Shave November
No-Shave November is a fundraising campaign operated by the Matthew Hill Foundation, Inc., a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. No-Shave November was reinvented by the Chicago-based Hill Family: grow with a purpose and raise money for charity. This initiative was inspired by the Hills’ late father, Matthew, who passed away from colon cancer in November 2007. From a few Facebook followers willing to donate their hard-earned money to thousands of donors championing cancer, No-Shave November has become a global celebration. No-Shave November is now operated by the Matthew Hill Foundation, Inc. (est. 2015), but holds the same goals. No-Shave November promises to keep raising money for cancer prevention, education, and research and to let that hair grow in the process. No-Shave November believes that together, anything is possible, and we’ll get closer to eradicating cancer one whisker at a time!
