Mustaches Making a Difference

1 Dec 2009

Sure, growing a mustache for charity is fun, but we know that sometimes the whiskers get more attention than the philanthropy. In case you need to be reminded about the good that our lip carpets can do, we thought we’d share an email we just received from a teacher whose DonorsChoose.org project is being funded by generous M4K-motivated donations. Inspiring stuff:

I just HAD to look into this mustache thing! I’ve had several donations to my donors choose project (Kindergarten Kitchen – Feeding the Future) and they’ve all been from people with mustaches!! So after some checking I found that many of the people who have donated are associated in some way to your site.  I have posted thank you’s to individuals to have donated, but I wanted to thank the entire site for bringing attention to such valuable and important causes.  I have taught for 8 years in urban settings.  I am used to buying supplies, mittens, food, etc. for the children in my Kindergarten class, so it has really been touching to see that others are willing to donate to “my children” who they don’t even know.  I just wanted to thank those who took the time to organize and set up this site.  I cannot tell you how touched I am that people I’ve never even met care.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
