If you’re a guy, then chances are that you can grow a mustache. Even if you can’t grow the best mustache, you can still attempt to grow something that resembles a mustache. In the case of Buffalo Whiskerino, an event that raises money for a good cause, men are charged with the machismo task of growing a stache over a five week stretch of time. In the end, the money raised is donated to Compass House, an agency that is dedicated to providing shelter to runaway and homeless youth. Last year the Whiskerinos raised over $120,000 for Compass House.
The great thing about Buffalo Whiskerino is that they guys who participate in the fundraiser do it in style (a similar style in fact). It’s a great way to meet new people, and there are get-togethers along the way (a support group you might say). Growing a mustache can be a lonely endeavor, but it doesn’t have to be. Rarely does a guy go out on a limb and grow a stache on his own, but honestly, every lad should try it once in his lifetime. Buffalo Whiskerino offers that chance, and a healthy dose of encouragement along the way.
The 8th Buffalo Whiskerino begins on March 14, 2015. You can visit the group’s website to learn more, or to simply register. Be sure to check out the rules before embarking on the life changing journey.
