#WillYouShave? Decide!

NO SHAVE November ?

Sounds familiar ? yes, right. Most of you might have heard of it in this on-going month of November.

The matter of fact that I would like to mention here is that without knowing about the concept really people have gone for the "No Shave November" campaign.

To bring to light, what it actually is: 
Simple as the 'No-Shave' organisation puts it is that "NO SHAVE NOVEMBER" is a unique way to raise cancer awareness. The organisation considers it a better way to grow awareness with some hair. Through this it demands of some support.

The Concept of No-Shave November:
The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free.  Donate the money you usually spend on shaving and grooming for a month to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.

What men are expected to do:
Participate by growing a beard, cultivating a mustache, letting those legs get mangly, and skipping that waxing appointment.  Give back even more by picking up some sweet merchandise to show support.  If one is not ready to sport a new shaggy look, consider donating anyway to support the cause.

What actually the trend is:
Just seeing others growing up beards and mustaches, they are following each other blindly, which does no good, neither to the person, nor to the organisation fighting to raise awareness about cancer.

So the next question I put forth to those who without any knowledge of the campaign and the idea behind the "No Shave November" thing is #WillYouShave?

I did it so because in the past month, I saw people going crazy, putting up status, improper grooming, no shaving, and endlessly being unclean. I felt the worst when I asked few of them about their reason of not grooming, they had no idea of the campaign and had meaningless answers, which just made me shrunk my face from a fat plum to an deflated balloon.

It was disheartening to see through the entire month the people giving the excuse of "No-Shave-November" without having known the adequate reason behind it.

So, a message for all those who did it purposely or non-purposely, the idea behind the campaign is to raise awareness, and you can be groomed for that reason, and contribute to the organisation if you can or go on for "No-Shaving" only in-order to save the amount that you spend for the entire one month of November to donate for the cause of cancer awareness.

This is it, and that is it!

So #WillYouShave ?

I leave it over you to decide.
