Donations raised through November will help St. Jude continue to find cures and save children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Supporters who were unable to attend the group photo are encouraged to post a date-stamped Day 1 photo to www.facebook.com/nsnforstjude. Capping off the campaign, awards will be given for best beard, the worst beard and many more during the celebrated “Beard Bash” in Music City on December 1st.
No Shave November is using all platforms to encourage the music industry to recruit as many men (and dedicated women) as possible to join the team, and to donate at least $30 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This year, Lady Antebellum’s Dave Haywood, has been appointed as 2014 Chairman of the Beard. In 2013, NSN raised an impressive $220,000 for the organization, with $396,000 raised over the past three years to support St. Jude.

About No Shave November:
Possibly the most ingenious charitable scheme ever devised, No Shave November helps some of the world's sickest children by asking participants to do nothing. Literally. Knowing that shaving sucks time out of each day and money out of men's wallets, a couple of guys at a Nashville record label came up with a plan: Stop shaving for a month, but put a positive twist on it by donating the money saved - at least $30 - to a worthy cause like St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. In just three years, the effort has spawned thousands of beards and, more importantly, thousands of dollars in donations to St. Jude.
