(WWLP) – It’s No-Shave November, so get ready to go all-natural and let your hair grow!
If you’re planning on participating in No-Shave November, 22News wants a before and after picture of your process. Everyone including residents, police and even lawmakers are encouraged to send a photo and tell us a little about why you’re doing it this year.
According to No-shave.org, No-Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conservation and raise cancer awareness.
The concept is to grow awareness by embracing your hair, which many cancer patients lose. Participants are encouraged to donate the money they typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and help those fighting the battle.
Local Police and Fire Departments are participating in the 2019 Home Base No-Shave which is hosted by the Boston Red Sox and Massachusetts General Hospital.
Proceeds from this fundraiser go towards raising awareness and funds for the critical life-saving care that Home Base provides to Veterans and their families to heal from the invisible wounds of war, such as post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury.
