About M4K Hastings
Mustaches for Kids Hastings is the local chapter of Mustaches for Kids, a volunteer-run organization started in Los Angeles in 1999 to do good and have fun by growing Mustaches for children's charities. The concept is pretty simple, you get pledges/donations to grow a mustache for one month. All the money raised during this fundraiser is donated to a local children's charity.
At the end of the growing season, we have Stache Bash, a mustache-themed costume party during which we crown the winner of the coveted "Sweetest Stache" and hand out other awards that are cherished by the recipients. So it's all pretty simple: mustache, charity, and competition infused with meaningless pageantry. You can spare four weeks of your life for that.
2016 Charity: Safe Kids South Central
Safe Kids South Central is a non-profit childhood injury prevention coalition led by Mary Lanning Healthcare. Our focus areas include Child Passenger Safety, Bicycle Safety and Home Safety. Our main focus is Child Passenger Safety, as it is the number one cause of death in children ages 1-14 and the number one cause of injury in children ages 2-14. We have an inspection station on the first Tuesday of every month except January at the Lincoln Park Fire Station from 10:00-4:30. We will teach families how to use any car seat for free. We do have a limited number of car seats for sale as well with a price reduction for those who have Medicaid, Kids Connection, or WIC.
