We raise money for kids by growing mustaches and soliciting donations. Sounds awesome, right? Well get this - in the past 8 years we have raised over $450,000 to benefit Supporting Kidds, The Center for Grieving Children and Their Families. If you think you have what it takes to grow a sweet stache to benefit a great local charity, click here to learn how you can get involved. View the Schedule of Events to see when all the fun starts. We hope you'll join us in raising money for such a great cause!
Mustaches for Kidds Delaware 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 Supporting Kidds, a non profit organization that helps kids through the grieving process when they have suffered a tragic loss.
At the end of the growing season, we have the 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")
