The No Shave Showdown is the beard equivalent to Movember. It is a website that allows people to upload images of their impressive facial hair in order to not only raise awareness for prostate cancer while also increasing donations to the American Cancer Society. An international movement, the No Shave Showdown focuses on creating a personal attachment to each participant as well.
By doing so, the No Shave Movement creates even more enticement to vote and donate. Of course, it also highlights the fact that a couple of its participants are fictional characters including Gandalf from 'Lord of the Rings' and the Bearded Lady. Perhaps the movement will open up to the average person in the near future.
