Mustaches for Kids Ottawa

12 Years of Growing Mustaches and Raising Money for Make-a-Wish

M4KX: Another great year and more to come

December 7th, 2015 by admin


Year after year, the growers and the donors make Mustaches for Kids a success.  That’s why we keep going and why we’ll be back next year.


A big thank you to all who grew for M4K and contributed to its success. We’ve raised $18,000 for Make-a-Wish EO and its going to go a long way to enriching the lives of the Make-a-Wish children. We had a lot of money still trickling in after the finale on Friday which really added a lot to the bottom line. This is truly a fantastic thing.

A mustache would be nothing without the upper lip. And with that I want to give a big shout out to my co-orgnanizers Trevor Kealey and Mike Hollingworth. I also want to thank Blake & Josh at the House of TARG. Thanks to M4K co-founder Steve Palmer for the awesome design this year. And finally thanks too to Johnny Kealey for taking video. We have a feature length film due out in Summer 2016.

If you missed it, check out our article on Apt613: Meet this month’s other charity mustache growers.

Stay tuned for next year’s installation of M4K – maybe we’ll just celebrate our 10th anniversary again… again.

sweetestAnd a big mustachey congratulations to Dr. Phil (aka Adam Aldersley) for winning this year’s Sweetest Stache.  Its truly an honour – is what we assume he would say if asked.
