Mustaches for Kids International is a volunteer-run non-profit organization started in Los Angeles in 1999 to do good and have fun by growing Mustaches for children's charities. The concept is pretty simple, you get pledges/donations to grow a mustache for one month. All the money raised during this fundraiser is donated to a local children's charity selected by the individual chapters.
M4K Chapters have partnered with dozens of local children's charities over the years and have raised well over $5,000,000. Last year alone our chapters raised over $1,000,000 for children and we are looking to expand by opening new chapters all across the country.
At the end of the growing season, we have Stache Bash, a mustache-themed costume party during which we crown the winner of the coveted "Sweetest Stache" and hand out other awards that are cherished by the recipients. So it's all pretty simple: mustache, charity, and competition infused with meaningless pageantry. You can spare four weeks of your life for that.
In the words of Mark Twain, "I've never met a man with a mustache that was not good, honest, decent, awesome, good-looking, humble, sexy, wise, and a fantastic dancer." (from "The Book of Stuff Mark Twain Never Said")
