Mustaches for Kids Omaha is the local chapter of Mustaches for Kids International, a volunteer-run 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.
In the past, we have partnered with Camp CoHoLo (Children's Cancer Camp of Nebraska), Nebraska Children's Home Society, Children's Respite Care Center, Make-A-Wish Nebraska, HETRA (Heartland Equine Therapeutic Riding Academy), Ted E. Bear Hollow, Youth Emergency Services, and Ronald McDonald House - Omaha. We have raised over $1,700,000 in our first nine years. Yes, that is million with an M.
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")
