Stashe Bash

Soldiers' Angels and supporter Ranger Up proudly announce StacheBash, an effort drawing together stars and fans from the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) to competitively show their support for the troops by growing a mustache while encouraging people to donate to Soldiers' Angels and Hire Heroes USA.

From now until the MMA fight on 10 December 2011, Soldiers' Angels is asking every MMA fighter, celebrity, or organization that wants to make a fundamental difference in the lives of our men and women serving abroad to "Mustache Up" and sign up for a team.  Each team competes against the others to raise as many donations for the troops as possible (all donations are tax deductible and will go through Soldiers' Angels accounts).

The goal is that on December 10 when Jon Bones Jones faces Lyoto Machida, the cage is full of fantastic facial hair, showcasing amazing support for our men and women in uniform.

Hire Heroes USA and Soldiers' Angels have partnered in this project to help create a continuum of support for veterans—Soldiers' Angels takes care of America's heroes when they're deployed, supports their healing when they return, and then connects them with Hire Heroes to get them the best possible start on a civilian career.

StacheBash was inspired in part by Movember, a developing international drive for men to grow mustaches during November to raise funds and awareness for men's health issues.  As of November 4, Twenty-six stars have formed seven competing teams with 'StacheBash.  To encourage your favorite MMA fighter or related organization to form a team, point them to the StacheBash website.
