Mustaches for Kids America 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 local children’s charities selected by the individual chapters.
M4K Chapters have partnered with dozens of local children’s charities over the years and have raised over $12,000,000. During the year 2020 with uncertainty and untold hardship – our chapters raised over $1,800,000 for children. Virtually. A feat only heroes could accomplish. Are you our next hero? 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”)
