Kris Allen’s growing a mustache to support music education, here’s how we can help

Short version:
Kris is growing a mustache to support music education. We can support him by –

  1. Donating to Donorschoose.org, where our donations will be matched by Music Empowers (every dollar helps!);
  2. Stach’ing our Twitter and/or Facebook profile pictures by following these instructions (if you want to be featured on The Great Wall of Stache, just send a tweet to @KrisAllenHK);
  3. Raise awareness to this wonderful cause by telling everyone we know!

Long version:
Kris Allen and Music Empowers once again are teaming up in support of music education for kids. For their latest effort the duo are partnering to provide a major grant to Donorschoose.org, the national online charity that matches individual donors to project requests fro teachers in public schools. Funds provided by Music Empowers will be used to match contributions made by individual donors to eligible classroom music education projects. “Once individual donations total 50% of a music project’s cost, we will fund the other 50%,” explained Andy Davis, Founder of Music Empowers. Kris and Andy hope that their initiative will help to fund hundreds of projects and benefit over 10,000 kids. Here is the link to the press release.

This is what Kris has to say about his stache:

For the next four weeks, I will subject myself to public humiliation and private doubt by growing what will no-doubt be a ridiculous-looking Mustache. To justify this endeavor, I need your support. Please sponsor my ‘stache by choosing a classroom project below and making a donation of any amount. And wish me and my Mustache luck.

And check out Kris being all adorable in this PSA:
