Recently, my online friend Caleb McNary emailed me with an inquiry. Would I willing to, during the month of November, engage in fearsome feats of follicular fortitude?
Would I willing to grow a beard for No shave November?
When I broached the subject with my wife, she wasn’t entirely supportive; because, you see, beards are not her favorite. (I do have a nice pebbling of stubble sprouting from my face. We’ll see if she notices).
The impetus behind No Shave November is to raise awareness for a worthy cause. In Caleb’s case, he’s put together a crackerjack team of (soon to be) bearded bloggers united for a single cause:
Our goal is simple: raise $1,000 to provide clean water for 50 people.
Will you join us?

If you’re among the male half of population, please consider joining in. If you do, use the hashtags #noshavember or #beardedbloggers, and post pictures of your hairy hirsuted progress to social media.
(As Caleb indicated in his post, if you’re a lady you’re more than welcome to join in. It is heading towards winter after all–so grow out that leg hair! Just don’t post any pics anywhere, okay?).
Thanks! Hope you’ll consider joining in on all the fun, faith, and follicles!
