“DO IT FOR
   THE KIDS”
CHARITY
GIVING
 
 

   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 the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.  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.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

This has become a yearly tradition since 2009 for the “Growers” to spend a day at Memorial Sloan-Kettering bringing fun & games to the children visiting & staying at  the hospital.
