The Stache Bash
Earlier this week Nick, Tommy, Kelly and a slew of our favorite MMA fighters to include Tim Kennedy, Brian Stann and Jorge Rivera threw down the gauntlet in order generate donations for the incredible work of Soldiers Angels and Hire Heroes. It is important to remember our service-members, both deployed and at home, during the upcoming holidays. In case you don’t know just how these organizations help, let’s have a quick review.
Soldiers’ Angels is a bad-ass, volunteer-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and their families. Founded in 2003 by the mother of two American soldiers, its hundreds of thousands of Angel volunteers assist veterans, wounded and deployed personnel and their families in a variety of unique and effective ways. “May No Soldier Go Unloved,” encapsulates the motivation behind Soldiers’ Angels. The volunteers of Soldiers’ Angels work tirelessly to demonstrate active care and concern for veterans, the wounded, deployed service members and their families.
Hire Heroes USA’s mission is to offer transition assistance, job search assistance, and job placement services to those who have honorably served in the US military – and to their spouses – in order to reduce veteran unemployment. Hire Heroes prioritizes veterans statistically most likely to be unemployed: veterans of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom, and veterans that are wounded or disabled. As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, Hire Heroes USA services are provided at no cost to the veteran.
What can you do?
We here at Ranger Up rarely ask you to do anything, but, in this case, we are asking you to do something not every man can do, but has secretly desired to…rock the stache! If you are one of our lady readers, have your man-friends rock the stache! Tell all of your friends, family, and the random stranger walking down the street that you are growing a glorious moustache for our troops and ask them to donate. Get this out on your facebook page and tweet your little thumbs off about it! We only have 6 weeks to let our inner-porn star out and let that caterpillar find a nice resting place under our noses! Send all of your acquaintances to make donations at http://www.stachebash.org and remind them that they are completely tax deductible (oh… and donate on behalf of Team Ranger UP)!
Here is the best part! I know you are all wondering “Okay, what the hell do I get out of this?” Well, here is your incentive: The guys here at Ranger Up are bribing you to contribute…yes, BRIBING!
Donations up to 50 dollars will receive a $5 Ranger Up gift certificate.
Donations up to 100 dollars will receive a $10 Ranger Up gift certificate.
Donations above 100 dollars will receive a $25 Ranger Up gift certificate.
In addition, we will be picking one donator to win a trip for two (hotel, airfare, and tickets) to a UFC event with the Ranger Up crew (that, my friends, is priceless). You get one entry into the drawing for every $25 you donate.
Our methodology may be unfair, but it’s for a great cause, so that makes it fair…right?
All you have to do is forward your receipt email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Time to RTFU
If you are man enough to accept the challenge, I will even create a page for all of our manliness for the world to see and show the other teams just how deep we really roll. Send pictures of your stupendous-stache to email@example.com (just don’t forget your name) and I will get them up for the world to see your manliness flow!
So get off your ass and feed the stache…it’s all for a great cause!
