When Somebody Asks What Month Is It! #Noshavenovember
Gentlemen pull down your razors!! It’s Movember which means “No Shave November has officially begun. For all those who are unaware of the term “Movember”, it’s an official term used for No-Shave November. It all began in 2003 in Australia to raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer. No-Shave November appears to be a trend to grow a beard and compete with friends to see who has a larger beard. Naturally, the ones who aren’t able to grow one suffer a lot of insults and become the subject of jokes among friends. However, No-Shave November stands for something much bigger and determined. Let’s know what it is actually about!
So How Did it all Began? Here’s the Story
Well, it all started in 2003. Two friends Travis Garaone and Luke Slattery met in a bar in Australia, Melbourne. They were talking about life and people around. Then, a conversation started about their friend’s mother who was battling breast cancer and that gave them the motivation of self-care. Specifically, they wanted to focus on men’s health care particularly Prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
Since then, the Movember Foundation now helps to generate awareness for mental health along with testicular cancer and suicide prevention. If you are still thinking about how did the name “Movember” came into picture then here’s the truth: Being that Australia spells Mustache a bit differently – Moustache. The word Movember was made by combing the two words ‘Moustache’ and ‘November’ to formally create ‘Movember’. At first, they asked just 30 of their close friends to grow a moustache for the month of November and they did it. No Shave November requires no shaving for the whole month i.e 1st November to 1st December and each man participating must portray himself like a true gentleman. Additionally, the concept of No-Shave November has been used for numerous other causes to raise money and awareness.
