The kick-off for Mustaches for Kids charity was this last Thursday evening here in Minneapolis. All participants had to arrive cleanly shaven and ready to begin this ridiculously embarrasing journey of ours.
My freshly shorn mug. It can only get better from here.
In case you missed the previous post, a group of us are growing mustaches in order to raise money for a non-profit here in MN that reaches out to "at-risk" youth. The mustache is really only a platform for asking everyone that encounters our sweet 'stache to help out financially. You have a better way of getting people's attention? I thought not.
Its a chance for we men to put aside our pride and help kids who did not have the oppurtunities that we did. So, keep an eye on my upper lip here on the blog--it's going to be an amazing (and distrubing) experience, I promise.
And, since I have your attention, I'd like to challenge you to participate in the good will by tossing a $5 or $10 to the cause. Send me an email from the "Contact" form if interested. (I will link a paypal address as soon as the organizers get it to me.)
