    Is anyone doing a No Shave November or know somebody who is? Supposedly it's for prostate cancer awareness. Aesthetics and workplace rules would seem against it.

    Oh. You only said "charity." Also, not that the rules are set in stone, but it's supposedly no shaving of the entire beard region. A moustache probably would work for many people, though.

    So now we punish ourselves with No Fap November and punish our sex partners with a big retro bush for No Shave November? Cruel

    Who isn't aware of prostate cancer? How will additional awareness lead to a cure?

    Meaningless symbolic gestures are meaningless and symbolic.

    Awareness doesn't equal funding (for prevention or better treatment). Compared to breast cancer, the incidence probably is similar but funding is much less. (Not that it's necessarily as bad a condition, although it might be deemed milder than it is.) That's why organizations use walks and other fund-raising tactics. The problem is that not shaving for a month probably wouldn't have much of an effect unless it were widespread and associated with an organization to collect donations. ("Oh, that's for a cause? I thought you were being lazy.") Hence the question about whether anyone is not shaving.
