Several Big Machine Label Group employees are taking part in No Shave November. Throughout the month, they will ditch their razors and let their beards grow, in order to bring awareness for the research and treatment for diseases in children. BMLG’s Beards For My Horses efforts will be donated to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Last year, the team raised more than $16,000. Contributions can be made here.
Staff members recently gathered at the start of the challenge to show off their clean-shaven faces.
