Every day, 22,000 people worldwide die of cancer. Most of us know someone who has been affected by this disease and nearly half of all cancer diagnoses and deaths are preventable.
No-Shave November's mission is to not only raise funds for cancer research and treatment, but to educate the public about preventative measures.
"The idea is that you donate the money you would normally spend in one month of shaving to the cause," Charlie explains.
For over six years, participants around the world have put down their razors to join the fight against cancer.
The No-Shave November campaign has successfully raised over $3.5 million dollars to combat this disease.
Follow along as Charlie posts a new picture on Twitter and Facebook each day to track his beard's progress over the course of the month.
We're encouraging others to join Charlie in taking the No-Shave November pledge and send us pictures of their journey as well!
