Can you believe it’s already been a year since our first ever Mustaches for Kids fundraiser in good ole Houston Texas. Last year was a blast growing and raising money and we capped it off with a fun Sweetest Stache Bash where the title went to Boots Electric!
We are switching gears this year to help ‘spread the wealth’ of funds raised. Mustaches for Kids has teamed up with Donors Choose to help out with area schools and teachers that need help in the classroom.
What is Donors Choose? In a nutshell(and it’s their tagline) Teachers ask. You choose. Students Learn. Expanding on that DC is a website where teachers can ask the community for donations by donating money so teachers can purchase learning materials that the city or state cannot afford. There are so many classes in our area that need learning materials so there is no shortage of options. Each grower this year will have their own ‘Giving Page’ on Donors Choose that will help their own donors choose what classrooms they want to help. Setting it up is a snap. In fact here is my personal Giving Page.
We have a growers kit that explains how to do this(see page 4) and you can get the Growers Kit here or on the top right of this site.
Donors Choose has teamed up with us to handle all of the logistics and leave us to do what we do best – grow mustaches. Houston is one of a few M4K cities to heed the call to join DC this year and in return DC has setup a M4K leader board by city page. You know what that means – It’s ON.
Last year the smelly town of Chicago challenged us to a stache-off to see who could raise the most money. I don’t remember the actual numbers and its been a year so I’m just going to go ahead and say we won, we may not have but if my memory serves me conveniently then we won! This year is going to be harder as the numbers are on a website and they don’t lie so lets let the other cities know we came to grow.
When does it all begin?
We will have our shave off November 7th at a location to be disclosed soon. We will then meet every Friday until our Sweetest Stache Bash on December 5th.
