Ideas For Growing Brands (And Beards) During No-Shave November
Every November, guys around the world grow out their ’staches and beards for No-Shave November. According to the No-Shave November organization, the goal is to raise awareness and funding for cancer prevention, research and education. Since the movement began in 2009, it has raised more than $10 million. A 2021 LendingTree survey of more than 2,000 men revealed that about half (46%) gave up shaving or decided to grow a mustache for No-Shave November.
When No-Shave November rolls around this year, brands and businesses can join the movement and help raise men’s health awareness by using promotional products. Keep reading this issue of Promotional Consultant Today for a few ideas.
