You’ve seen it happening. People around you are getting hairier.
That can only mean that it’s November again: a glorious month of unmitigated hair growth, all to help raise awareness for cancer and men’s health issues.
And Rulesware is entering the fuzzy fray. Rulesware El Salvador is participating this year in No Shave November, a movement encouraging both men and women to let it all, er, grow out.
The goal is to grow awareness by celebrating our hair, which many cancer patients lose. The idea is to donate any money you’d usually spend on haircuts, grooming, or shaving for a month to contribute to cancer prevention and research and help those fighting cancer.
In the spirit of the cause, we encourage our employees, clients and friends to share your hairy images in all their glory by using the hashtag #RWNoShave. We’ll happily collect and share them through the month to publicize the cause.
Please also consider using the following hashtags–doing so will prompt sponsors of No-Shave November to contribute more to the cause:
Rulesware Loves Movember, too!
And if you’re more a Movember kind of person, we heartily encourage contributing to this cause, too!
The Differences Between No-Shave November and Movember: Movember
A group of 30 men kicked off Movember, unofficially, when they organized an event to raise awareness for prostate cancer and depression in Australia in 2004–and grew moustaches to help attract attention to the event. It worked. Growing into the Movember Foundation Chairty, they have since raised over $299 million in global funds.
The Movember Rules are simple: you must kick off November 1st with a fresh, clean-shaven face. Then throughout November, every “Mo Bro” must grow and groom a moustache. Be careful, though: you must not, according to Movember Rules, allow your mustache to join with your sideburns and convert to a beard. Likewise, no goatee. And of course, say the “Rules” every participating Mo Bro must behave throughout the contest “like a true gentleman.”
The Differences Between No-Shave November and Movember: No Shave November
No Shave November is not as directed at men’s health issues as November, and rather raises awareness about cancer, generally. It’s also a lot easier for women to participate in.
The goal of No Shave November is, as they state, “to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free.”
With the money men and women usually spend on shaving and grooming, participants are encouraged to instead donate those funds to research organizations and groups that educate others about cancer prevention, saving lives, and aiding those fighting the battle.
No matter which way you choose to lend your support to the cause, schedule a check up with your doctor and let your facial hair grow free!
