We wondered about them for years.  We were curious.... yet

frightened. We always wanted to know what it would be like,

but the reality of making it happen seemed unlikely.  Yes...

we’re talking about Mustaches. 

    Then it happened. A couple of friends from Long

Island looking to raise some money for a good

cause came upon an organization called

Mustaches For Kids.  An organization that told us hey... you’re

mustache probably won’t look like Tom Selleck’s.  In fact, it’s a lot

more likely to look like that little old lady’s down the street - and that’s ok. 

Just like that the fear was gone.  This was it - Grow Mustaches, Have a couple drinks, and Donate Money to a charity that’s going to help children.  There was no looking back.

    Word spread  fast and the Long Island Chapter of Mustaches For Kids was born. We met at the TIKI BAR in Long Beach and people showed up by the dozens (about 3 dozen).  Our volunteers quickly shaved their faces and on November 16, 2007 they let the growing begin.

   We’re having a good time and raising money for a good cause all at once.  All the money we raise will be donated to the Pediatric Cancer Care Center at Memorial Sloan Kettering.  This fund helps families who are having trouble paying for their children’s cancer treatment.  There’s an English proverb that says “A man without a mustache is like a cup of tea without sugar.”  Just as sugar sweetens the tea, so do the mustaches sweeten our lives and hopefully, the lives of those around us.

The Mustaches for Kids Fund was created this past year by Memorial Sloan Kettering to benefit various patient support programs in the Department of Pediatrics at MSK that are in need of additional funding. Specifically, the fund will help build the Teen and Young Adult (TYA) Program, which addresses the emotional needs of patients between the ages of 16 and 28. MSK is developing a mobile app to help TYA peers connect and support each other. A dedicated TYA Lounge recently opened as a space to socialize and relax away from the clinical setting. The Mustaches for Kids Fund will also help to provide vital non-medical support for families who are struggling with the emotional, financial, and logistical challenges that can adjoin a diagnosis of childhood cancer. Having to seek out and pay for hotels, meals, parking, and sibling childcare adds strain and anxiety. Removing these complexities enables parents to focus on their most important task: supporting and healing their child.

News 12 of Long Island did a story on the Long Island Charity Mustaches for Kids, that appeared in their “Making a Difference” section of their newscast.


This has become an annual tradition since 2009 for the “Growers” who participate with M4KLI to spend a day at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Pediatric Cancer Care Center bringing fun & games to the children visiting & staying at  the hospital. Our goal for the day is simple, “Let Kids Just Keep on being Kids”.
