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
children’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, Children’s Hospital of New Orleans, and San Francisco’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.
