2020 Mustache Games!
2020 Mustache Games!

Hi all,


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 $20,000 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 200 growers collectively raise over $500,000 for  The Children's Hospital Foundation, Greater Richmond SCAN, The ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation, Feedmore, and more. 


How your donations can impact these wonderful organizations:


$1 - Helps provide 4 meals to hungry children in Richmond

$25 - Provides snacks for 16 kids receiving treatment in clinic for 1 day or purchase 10 thermometers for families in the Pediatric Emergency Department

$50 - Purchases 5 copies of Goodnight Moon to be placed in 5 baby boxes given to each baby delivered at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU or provide a gas card or groceries for a family

$100 - Provides an hour of psychosocial care to a child, sibling or parent impacted by cancer or cover the cost of an exercise assessment and Personal Training session for a patient in CHoR’s Healthy Lifestyles Center 

$250 - Purchases 100 premature baby diapers, provide 1 week of after school tutoring for a child, or pay a utility bill for a parent that had to quit their job due to child's diagnosis or treatment schedule 

$500 - Assists a family with paying rent or mortgage payments or cover the cost of 5 children to participate in CHoR’s Healthy Lifestyle Center’s group exercise class

$1,000 - Allows a group of patients from the Center for Craniofacial Care at CHoR to have a Boys/Girls Night Out

$2,000 - Sends 15 medically fragile children that live at CHoR’s Rehabilitation Pavilion to Virginia Beach for a day

$5,000 - Covers the cost of three pediatric wheelchairs


Let's do this, let's raise some funds for the kids who need it!

Week 2!

First of all, a HUGE thank you to everyone who has already donated!  Your generosity makes the awkward moments of silence when I enter the room worthwhile.  I've gotten more than a few chuckles from folks who've known me for a while.

Two weeks in and Elisa’s Salvador Dali is coming in nicely!  Mine, on the other hand, is showing a lot of grey this year so I asked her to help me with my coloring.  It’s nice to have an artist in the house.

We still have a few weeks to go and I am just starting towards my goal so tell your friends and family that I need more help. 
Tis the Season!
Tis the Season!

Hello, All,


This is my final week of the 2021 M4KRichmond growing season.  Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has donated to me so far.  Unfortunately I am only two thirds of the way to my goal of $4,600 and only a few days left to donate (Friday is the final day).  If you have been considering donating, now would be a really great time.


Please, anything you are willing to contribute to the M4K charities is really appreciated.

Elisa and James decided that my 'stache is looking a bit raggedy and needed something to draw attention away from it...
