As we get deeper into November, the beards get scruffier and thicker at UB. Many men choose to participate in No Shave November. The name itself is pretty self-explanatory; however, for those of you who aren’t familiar with No Shave November, it’s simply a month of abstaining from shaving. Although many students may think it’s just for fun, No Shave November has an interesting origin. It started in Australia in 2003 and was originally known as Movember. “MO” stood for mustache, and men would only grow out the hair on their upper lip. Movember was to raise awareness of prostate cancer, and in 2004, $55,000 was raised in Australia for prostate cancer research. This awareness spread quickly, and there are currently around 250,000 supporters. In 2009, 42 million dollars was raised by the Movember Organization. Men in this organization are called “Mo-Bros.” Check out their website, and help spread prostate cancer awareness!
