BENEFITING: Prostate Cancer Foundation
There's a lot of awareness and charities out there for cancer research, but there's one form that's affected my family that I feel is underrepresented: prostate cancer. So I'm starting a campaign to donate to the Prostate Cancer Foundation similar to other November men's health campaigns.
But if we've already got Movember and No-Shave November, why a separate campaign? Frankly, I didn't fit in with either of these famous movements:
- Movember has an explicit "no beards" rule. I'm going full beard.
- No-Shave November works with the American Cancer Society. I wanted a charity specifically for prostate cancer that has a better rating on Charity Navigator.
So how does it work? Similar to the more popular campaigns, I've shared my glorious red beard. I'll be growing it back, but I ask that people donate to keep it growing. Otherwise I'll look like the world's tallest baby!
