It's the gift a lot of people were asking for this holiday season. The McRib is making its return and to make it better, McDonald's is partnering with No-Shave November to raise money for cancer research.

In a press release on Monday, McDonald's announced that the McRib is back nationwide for the first time since 2012. It makes its official return beginning December 2. While we are officially in December, McDonald's is asking you to shave off that beautiful beard you've grown during the month of November for a good cause and for a chance to a get a free McRib.

McDonald's promotion with No-Shave November began on Monday, and they want to hand out a free McRib to  the first 10,000 fans who show their clean-shaven face. Whether you have a beard or no beard, you can win a McRib. You can even with a free McRib with a facial mask because anyone can participate.

To enter to win a free McRib, customers need to post a picture of their cleanly-shaven or baby-smooth face on Twitter or Instagram using #Shave4McRibSweepstakes and tag @mcdonalds. The first 10,000 entries to do so will receive a code for a free McRib, which will be available through McDelivery with Uber Eats, while supplies last.

Vice President of U.S. Communications, David Tovar for McDonald's said in the press release,

“Our bearded fans know… facial hair and the McRib just don’t mix—believe me, I’ve tried. With the nationwide return of the McRib, we’re helping fans enjoy every delectable moment by encouraging them to shave for a chance to win a free McRib. And we’re excited this year to partner with No-Shave November, a charity that knows a thing or two about facial hair.”


For the launch of the McRib, McDonald's is partnering with No-Shave November, a non-profit organization devoted to fundraising for cancer research, prevention, and education. McRib's purchased on December 2 will help support a donation by McDonald's to the charity’s cancer initiatives.

Senior Executive Director of No-Shave November, Monica Hill said in the press release,

“No-Shave November is a month-long journey where we ask participants to put down their razors and ‘get hairy’ in the name of cancer awareness. We’re thrilled McDonald’s is supporting this important cause, getting both the bearded and the non-bearded involved beyond November simply by purchasing a McRib.”
