EVERYONE has heard of Movember and most of you will probably be familiar with Decembeard.

But now the latest fuzz-growing fundraiser is encouraging women to ditch their razor throughout the month of January.

The campaign was first launched last year to encourage women to embrace women to embrace their natural bodies.

Founder Laura Jackson, aged 22, said women from all over the world signed up for the first campaign.

The Exeter University drama student said she came up with the idea after growing out her own hair for a performance.

Speaking at the time, she said: “Though I felt liberated and more confident in myself, some people around me didn’t understand or agree with why I didn’t shave.

“I realised that there is still so much more for us to do to be able to accept one another fully and truly.”

A statement on the official Januhairy Facebook page adds: “A very hairy new year to you all!

“Today marks the first day of #januhairy2020 where women all over the world come together to drop our razors for the month of January.

“The focus may be on women, but this movement includes all genders and identities.

“Let’s educate one another on ALL experiences within this ‘prickly’ subject.

“Our charity focus this year is to support Tree Sisters in protecting, restoring and funding reforestation…

“A plight we resonate with as women, to protect and restore our personal natural habitats.

“Even if you are not personally joining in with januhairy this year, I encourage you to talk about the it with others; if we see the same things again and again, it becomes normal.”

The campaign hopes to raise £2,500 for Treesisters which protects and restores natural habitats in order to fight climate change.
