Last summer, Walnut Creek Church launched Mustaches That Matter, an initiative to share about the great need and joy in adoption. Mustaches That Matter was a response to God’s call to care for orphans as we desired to align our heart with God's heart.
We asked men to grow a mustache and then invite friends, relatives, and coworkers to financially sponsor their mustache. From July 25 to August 25, 206 men decided to grow with us and unleash the power of their mustaches for a greater cause.
Within the first week, we met our goal of raising $25,000. The next week we raised an additional $15,000. In four weeks, Mustaches That Matter raised $76,300 to help families provide waiting children with loving and permanent homes.
Mustaches That Matter partners with families in the adoption process to help them cross their financial finish line. Money raised goes toward our adoption assistance fund to help multiple families each year who are adopting internationally or domestically.
If you are in the adoption process, consider applying for financial assistance through Mustaches That Matter. Or if someone you know is adopting, share with them how they could get help finishing their financial needs. Mustaches That Matter exists to help bring children home. We would love to be part of your family’s adoption story.
The application for assistance is now open through March 31. For guidelines and more information, visit mustachesthatmatter.com/apply.
