Sorry I haven’t been able to take better pictures of the ’stache — this is me at the check-in the other night, and you can definitely see how my little chin-strap dealy is supporting everything. Things are definitely heating up: I can tell that random people on the street are starting to stare at me, and random people I talk to keep trying to hide their smiles when they see my face. But it’s all worth it for you, dear readers, as long as you’re willing to support the children who learn and play at 826 CHI.
This be the link you need to press to donate, and please give as much (or as little) as you can. We’re up past the $200 total (thanks to everyone who’s donated so far!), so there’s both a conversation with me and an original drawing by me in the prize pot that everyone who donates will be entered into. Of course, more money donated means more prizes — there’s some Blizzard stuff on the line and a dinner with me if the total gets big enough.
Please give — there’s only a little while left in the fundraising event, so don’t wait.
And I should mention that my moustache now has a life (and a Twitter account) of its own. If you’re on Twitter, you can follow mikesmoustache to get all of the up-to-date information about what my facial hair is up to at any given time. Seriously, I’m not in control of that account at all. I have no idea what’ll be posted there — it’s all up to my ’stache.
Thanks for reading, and thanks most of all for giving — the kids at 826 CHI (who I was just hanging out with earlier this morning — they say hi and that you look nice today) really appreciate it.
