Raising money for Make-a-Wish: Mustaches for kids at bv02

Nov122013

A few brave bv02 souls will be donating some valuable face real estate to the Make a Wish Foundation of Eastern Ontario this November.  That’s right, our team will be taking part in another mustache-filled month as part of Mustaches for Kids.

What’s Mustaches for Kids?

Conceptually, Mustaches for Kids is like a marathon where you raise pledges except without the exertion, dehydration or cramping.

Why do we participate?

I’ve been involved in Mustaches for Kids for over 8 now, and as part of being involved I’ve had the chance to meet some of the families who’ve had wishes granted.  The impact that the hope and joy having a wish granted has on not only the child, but the whole family, can’t be overstated.  To be able to help grant those wishes is a huge honour, and my upper lip won’t be doing much else for the month – why not use it for a good cause?

Mustaches for Kids has raised over $150,000 for Make-a-Wish over the last 8 years.

How can you get involved?

On November 1st we shaved off our beloved beards in order to start with a clean slate for the month.  You can get in on the action by signing up at m4kottawa.org, and if you can’t shave today, don’t worry – registration doesn’t close, and we’re always excited to have more Growers participating. If you aren’t the mustache type, please donate to your favourite bv02 grower:
