    Ah! Too late for that. The beard I grew for a year without shaving came off in October. What does "No Shave November" symbolize other than saving money on blades?

    I think its saint Jude but anyway one if the cancer hospitals hold it every year. You send them a dated picture of you clean shaved at the first of the month with a donation. At the end of the month you send a second dated picture. Prizes are awarded to the nicest beards.

    I would do it but I have a few years worth of beard I am not willing to cut off for the clean shaved picture...

    My hubby is doing the Aussie version which is called movember. You get sponsors and grow a mo (Moustache) for November. The money raised goes to prostate cancer research and the idea is also to bring awareness about prostate cancer and being checked.

    See some pretty funny and cool moustaches come the end of the month. But my hubby has to cheat and stops shaving his top lip mid October or else all he ends up with is a dirty looking top lip lol

    My 'beard' is at the disreputable looking 1 week period. Not a pretty sight at all.
