ironic moustache revival

The stache is back. And this time, it's for a good cause.

826 Chicago, a non-profit writing and tutoring centre, is holding a Moustache-A-Thon, a moustache-growing contest to benefit their free writing programs for Chicago students. The opening cermony is tomorrow evening and they'll also be holding ‘stasche tracking parties on a regular basis. Get all the hairy deets here.

826 Chicago will also be opening The Boring Store in a few days.

Friday, February 23rd
The time has come. The Boring Store – Chicago’s only undercover secret agent supply store - will open on Friday, February 23rd. We have grappling hooks. We have dissolving paper. And we have heavy surveillance at the door to protect your privacy. Drop by, ever so stealthily, any day of the week, from noon until 6 p.m. All proceeds from The Boring Store go directly toward supporting 826CHI’s free writing programs.

Hey, if you're going to fundraise, do it with flair.

UPDATE: Read Brad Flora's article and photo tour of The Boring Store It's, um, really boring. Yeah, that's it. :)

What an ingenious fundraising idea!

The Boring Store has opened and it's a spectacular, wonderful place full of ridiculous, sinister objects!
