What is Don't Shave November?


We have partnered with Pioneer Tap House to bring DON'T SHAVE NOVEMBER to Brownwood. We're looking for anyone who will grow some facial hair to show they care!  All proceeds will go to the Brown County United Way.


Stop shaving on November 1st and let your beard grow wild and free until November 30th. Just want to grow a stache? Go for it! If you already have a beard, that's cool with us. You can still join the team and help raise money to make our community stronger! 




2)  Click on the I WANT TO FUNDRAISE FOR THIS EVENT button

3)  Join a team (for businesses or organizations) or Create your own page (individuals)

4)  Upload your picture & goal

5)  Save

6)  Share to Facebook and update your beard pictures weekly

Be sure to like us on Facebook and tag us in your Don't Shave November posts @BrownCountyUnitedWayofTexas

7)  We are asking all participants to donate $20 to get things started.

This includes a t-shirt (additional t-shirts available for $17- email to order additional t-shirts)

Ask people to show support for your stubble by making a donation to the Brown County United Way.  Get the word out!  Every donation means more resources to improve education, financial stability, and health in our community.  Like us on Facebook, send out progress reports, and don't forget to say who you are growing your beard for!

Contact Sarah Hoffman at or (325) 800-8020 if you have questions.
