20 charities for 20 years! It's for the kids!
I have upped my goal since I have had so much support. Thank you to everyone that has donated. I have a little over a week left to raise money for the kids (as I write this). Feel free to send me a message if you want an updated 'stache pic. Happy Thanksgiving!
It is the hairy beginning to another glorious month of upper lip follicle growth. I hope you will be able to support this endeavor as it will benefit many children in the Richmond, VA area. This is the 20th year of participation for the Richmond chapter of Mustaches for Kids, so we are going to contribute to 20 different charities (listed below) this year! Last year, 200 men dared to go from smooth skinned to various levels of lip coverage. That cohort raised $600,000 for the kids! We can beat that number this year, but that means I 'mustache' you for your help. I will do my best to send out updates along the way. Some of you will laugh, others will cry (why?), and yet more will roll their eyes. I hope everyone will understand that I venture down this path not for myself, not to ruin Thanksgiving pictures, but for the kids! Any amount will help and I thank you for your support.
This year, we are using a new website, so I will do my best to update where ever I can.
