    Hi there Eileen! :] Here is a brief synopsis taken from a website. The link below will take you to a more lengthy one:

    Though the history of this phenomenon is hazy, the lineage of “No-Shave November” really began in Australia and New Zealand. Males would grow a moustache for the month to support prostate cancer awareness and various related organizations, and call the event “Movember,” a combination of moustache and November.
    According to the National Cancer Institute, testicular cancer is most commonly seen in men between the ages of twenty and thirty-nine, and is diagnosed in about 8,090 new patients yearly. However, this number is slowly climbing, and there is substantial concern about getting the word out to all men about the awareness of testicular cancer.
    Naturally, Americans adopted the absurd-but-thoughtful notion, and conceived the over-the-top concept of neglecting to shave their entire face for the month, rather than just the area above their upper lip. Thus, “No-Shave November” was born in the states. Also known as “Decembeard,” or “Manuary.”
