Yes, I am actually growing a mustache (again) and like last year, with this growth comes strong goals and purpose. This time I get the chance to look a little ridiculous for the next month for your enjoyment.

Last year I raised over $1500 thanks to wonderful friends and family...a tough act to follow this year.

 M4K Richmond improves the quality of life for local children through individual fundraising, partnering with local charities and businesses, and having a little bit of fun with facial hair.  Basically we grow mustaches for a month as a marketing tool to raise money for local children's charities.  Last year we had over 120 growers raise and donate $150,000 to ASK, SCAN, the Children's Hospital Foundation of Richmond, the Autism Grant, and the Faison School. This year we have added Feedmore in addition to those great charities and are shooting to raise even more money. Click on the links of each one to learn more about how they help local Richmond area children and their families deal with heartbreaking situations such as child abuse, cancer, autism, and other childhood ailments.
Check Out my progress this year......

Hard to believe this is only week 2....the stache has come out of the blocks at Usain Bolt speed and is daring everyone else to catch up
