No-Shave November now falls under a different, more charitable title: Movember. And while it’s entertaining to see how men can transform into Captain Hook, Santa Clause, or Sherlock Holmes for a month of facial hair insanity, it adds another layer of fun to the month. Movember is a spirited charity that raises awareness and funds to combat common men’s health issues like prostate and testicular cancer.
