Mustache Madness....A different type of March Madness

So it’s almost down to the wire…this competition of MEN. The competitors are starting to look more than a little…scruffy. Who will be crowned champion of these men among men? Well, we will just have to wait and see, but it’s anyone’s guess at this point, when you remember the madness…the MUSTACHE MADNESS!

It all started with 19 brave men. The number 19 represents the number of teens that give birth each day in South Carolina. The contestants all started with baby faces and individual fundraising goals, and then, the game began. Each man has, for the last three weeks, been growing their mustache (ONLY A MUSTACHE) and raising money through the help of friends and family. As each man reaches his goal, he is allowed to go back to his facial hair status (bearded, shaved, or the inevitable Soul Patch!), but until he reaches his goal, it is MUSTACHE MADNESS for him.

The SC Campaign staff have gotten in on the fun and have been supporting the competitors that are co-workers in different ways, including temporary tattoos! SC Campaign competitors include training coordinator Ryan Wilson, CPO Doug Taylor, and CEO Forrest Alton.

Other agencies have gotten in on the act too, and the men are doing whatever they can to raise the money to be done with the competition. They have hosted beer nights at their homes where the $5 went to the donations, put out “Stache Cash” jars at their work places to grab money from good humored customers, and have even resorted to using cute furry friends or children in their weekly photos to get the “Aww” votes!

So if you are interested in getting in on the fun too, please do! Go to our website, and visit our DONATE NOW page. Click on MUSTACHE MADNESS and donate to your favorites!
