Edmodo’s Edmustache

The men of Edmodo are multi-talented.  When they aren’t toiling away at their desks muttering random techie-sounding phrases (which, by the way, we really don’t understand but hey we’re trying to be team players so we just nod and smile sympathetically), they can often be found doing very manly men things  — tracking wild game (not really), refurbishing classic cars (well…never), and sometimes just standing around growing hair out of their faces.

Here at Edmodo, we like to use these manly superpowers for good – so for the next month, the men of Edmodo are growing mustaches for kids.

That’s right, for the next four weeks, Jeff, Nic, Jason, Ash, Paul, Ben, Carlos, Ale, Diego, & Gabriel will be the subject of public admiration (or perhaps equally, its opposite) by growing what will no-doubt be the most impressive mustaches in this hemisphere.

During this time, they will shave their faces, except for the Mustache, a minimum of one time per week and solicit donations to support DonorsChoose projects created by teachers in the Edmodo Community.  (As Mustaches for Kids points out, ‘it’s kind of like getting pledges to run a marathon. Without the exertion, cramping, or dehydration.  A facial hair marathon if you will.’)

Each Friday, we’ll provide a status update on the state of our hirsute colleagues, as well as an update on the money raised by the Edmodo community.  Our goal is to be the top fundraising mustache growers in the country – so please spread word about this event far and wide.

Viva la ‘Stache!

PS.  To the men in the Edmodo community around the world – feel free to jump in and support the cause too!  Grow your stache – point your friends and family to the Edmodo’s Edmustache donation page – and we’ll highlight you here!)

Ladies and gentleman, I give you —   The clean shaven men of Edmodo *cue: applause*   Stay tuned for an update next Friday (with more pics of the rest of the team).

    Thank you so much for Edmodo……a wonderful web 2.0 for struggling districts!!! I am having so much fun, can’t wait to share with teachers. I am a technology coach and it’s been a challenge with the budget crunch!!!

    Thank you for your work! I was away for two weeks in Italy. I set my substitute teacher up as a coteacher, put the assignments in for my students and went off. While away, I was able to connect with my students and the sub and I even got to upload pictures! The students were interested in my travel and got a lot out of my experience too! When I came back, I did not have a pile of papers to grade – it was all online waiting and I was able to easily grade by assignment. Thank you so much for such a great site that has made my teaching life so much easier.
