Folks, put away those razors. No-Shave November is here.

Started in Australia in 2003, Movember — a combination of mustache and November — works to raise money for a variety of men’s health initiatives. In its nearly 20 years, No-Shave Movember has funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world, according to the group’s website.

The UNC School of Medicine, The Mo Bros and Mo Sisters of Raleigh-Durham, the MoBro’s and MoSista’s of Charlotte and many others across the state and country are participating.
