Hello! I am once again taking part in this year's M4K Growing Season for Richmond children's charities! Specifically Better2gether. Not because I am able to grow a glorious stache (I am not), but because the cause is worthy. The donations raised by M4K during November make a tremendous difference. This event allows Better2gether to provide programs and services for those children and families who are dealing with complex health conditions and often have nowhere else to turn for support. I would greatly appreciate your generosity this November for this great cause. Please visit Better2gether's website if you would like to learn more them and the people they serve. Thank you!
M4K Richmond, Inc. is a volunteer-run organization that was founded in 2003 with the goal of raising money for local children’s charities while having fun growing mustaches! Over the years, M4K has raised over $3.7M dollars for our own local charities and this year Better2gether has joined in the growing frenzy! Better2gether was formed out of the contrasting experiences of two families with sick children. Our son, diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, had a wonderful support system through multiple organizations in Richmond. B2G's co-founder's son was diagnosed with a rare and complex lung disease and had quite a different experience. Stephanie and Liz recognized a need to serve these families and children who literally fall through the cracks. Their challenges are extreme, but uncommon enough that they may not fall under existing support groups populations. It is wonderful to see the impact that Better2gether can make on these families, but their work continues to grow every year with aggressive goals to serve those who are still in need in our community. Supporting Better2gether means that they can support more children and families in their time of great need.
