I've never had facial hair.  Ever.  Maybe I got a little shaggy over a long weekend or a beach vacation, but I've never, ever had anything that could be called a beard, goatee, or mustache.

My wife, Holly, is on the board of the Jubilee Center, a nonprofit dedicated to helping urban kids grow into successful adults.  The Jubilee Center is a first-time participant in this fundraiser and Holly kindly volunteered me to grow a mustache.

Yup, business engagements, City Council meetings, Thanksgiving photos, and a conference or two, I will be sporting a mustache, knowing that I must look awful.  I have my button (the one that says "ask me about my 'stache") and will be strong.  I will perceiver through the ridicule and public embarrassment.  I will prevail to the end of the month.  I will raise at least $3,000 to support these children.  I will look forward to shaving December 1st.

Please help me exceed my goal.  I can handle the mustache, but only if I know it is raising money for these kids!  Thank you for your support.

What's that on my upper lip? Some sort of growth?
 
Day 2 of the Mustaches 4 Kids challange...
 
So, I think we need to set up some sort of contest. What type of mustashe should I grow? A walrus? The Chevron? Toothbrush?
Make a donation, and put your choice in the comments! The 'stache type with the most money raised by Friday 11/10 is the winner!
 
Yes, I'll (attempt to) grow it, no matter what type.
 
Let's use the internationally recogonized mustache styles found here:
