Our Approach

About M4K

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. We select our charity in the spring so check back here in February for info on our selection process.

Our Story

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")
