9NEWS NOW's Mike Hydeck Celebrates "Movember"
(WUSA) -- Guys: put down that razor and don't shave for the entire month. That's all you have to do to take part in "Movember."
"Movember" is a worldwide effort to raise money for men's cancer charities and initiatives, especially the Prostate Cancer Foundation and Livestrong.
Men pledge not to shave for the entire month of November. In exchange, they get people to sponsor their stubble, with money going to men's cancer charities.
In 2010, more than 447,000 men worldwide took part in Movember. Together, they raised more than $80 million.
The Movember website includes tips on growing a better moustache or beard, links to other men taking part in Movember, and even a Movember app for your smartphone.
