Yup – I got talked into doing the Houston Mustaches for Kids. So give me some money for charity now dammit. OK, wait, I have to work on my approach. First a little of the hairy nitty gritty about M4k Houston.
Mustaches for Kids is a volunteer-run organization started in Los
Angeles in 1999 to do good and have fun by growing Mustaches for
childrenâ€™s charities. Since its humble beginnings, Mustaches for Kids
satellite chapters have spread across the continent, a steady expansion
that is not unlike the measured, deliberate growth of a Mustache.
Through the years, Mustaches for Kids has enlisted the efforts of
hundreds of brave of Growers who, collectively, have raised over
$150,000 for charities such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Childrenâ€™s Hospital of New Orleans, and San Franciscoâ€™s Legal Services for Children.
What can I do to help?
Well – I am glad you asked! You can pledge! So far I have one of my kids pledging 0.25 cents, but I think he might back out. So throw me a hairy bone here with a pledge! Because the beginnings are in place.
More details on pledging:
The minimum Pledge Goal for each Grower should be
$50.00 for the designated charity, but in no way should anyone be
discouraged from participating in the contest because he doesn’t think
he can make the Pledge Goal – $5 or $500, it goes to a good cause.
Please be aware of and obey all local laws when soliciting donations.
So my question is, would they have warned me about following local laws if this wasn’t a manly mustache competition? Are they AFRAID of the power of the stache? Inquiring minds want to know. So for now, post a comment if you wnat to pledge? I promise to REPRESENT well! And I leave you with a symbol.
