Hi there! For the second time in my life, I am growing a mustache (or trying to.) This time I fear it will come along with a good bit of embarrassment and explanation. But hey, that's what it's all about (the explanation, not necessarily the embarrassment.) I'm going to be sporting the cheezy stash to support this year's M4K Growing Season for Richmond children's charities! Specifically Better2gether. I would greatly appreciate your support for this great cause.
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 $2.9M 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.
