It's November again, and that means I grow a mustache to raise money for several children's charities. Yes, I know that I don't look as good in a mustache as, say, Nick Offerman (honestly, who does?) but it's for a worthy cause and I can deal with the sideways glances for a month.
I need your help though. Since 2014, I have raised over $11,000 thanks to YOUR generosity. This year I have set a hefty goal again, so, anything you are willing to contribute will be much appreciated. If you visit my page you can make a donation and see some pictures from my last couple of years.
M4K Richmond improves the quality of life for local children through individual fundraising and partnering with local charities and businesses. In a nutshell, we grow mustaches as a marketing tool to help local children’s charities. Last year we had 120 growers collectively raise over $230,000 for ASK, SCAN, Childrens Hospital Foundation of Richmond, Feedmore, Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation, FRIENDS Association for Children, The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club and Richmond Friends of the Homeless..
