moustaches held hostage by 826

I just got a note from my friend Forest. He wanted to let me know that he’s re-growing his moustache. This time, however, he wanted me to know that things were different. This time, it was going to be for a good cause.

Apparently the local creative writing and literacy group, 826 Michigan, is hosting a Moustache-A-Thon fundraiser. They convinced several already mostachioed men to shave and then pay for the privledge to grow them back. (For those of you who don’t know, there’s something of a historic precedent here in Ypsi, where men have been called on throughout history to pay for the right to shave.) If you’d like to donate to a damned good cause, and help my friend Forest buy his moustache back in the process, just click here. You can give as little as one dollar, and, as I’ve mentioned here on the site before, you couldn’t pick a better non-profit than 826 to support… Seriously, if you don’t want to help Forest, then at least visit one of the 826 shops and spend some cash. They’re the most interesting thing to happen to retail in the past 25 years.

    What about raising money with ball shaving licenses?

    Smooth Sacks for Heart Attacks has a nice ring to it.

    And then they also make money selling rides once the moustaches are back.
