Yep – it’s that time of year again….. Let’s Grow This Thing!  For the 9th consecutive growing season, I come to ask for your of the “The Wiggler” and our mission to improve the quality of life for kids in need across Central VA.
 
I/we very much understand each of you have endured chaos and faced challenges over the past 9/months that you never dreamed you would.  Its times like these when we reflect on the many blessings in our lives – health, family, friends, fellowship and together, we will overcome today’s hurdles and create a brighter tomorrow.
 
“The 2020 Grower Reality” – Quarantine, Masks, social distance. 
As you know, the secret to our success has always been sporting our sweet staches throughout our community to raise awareness and funds.  Sadly,  our charities who do incredible work also have felt the same strain – cancelled/altered annual fundraising galas, reduced volunteerism, reduced funds due to financial uncertainty.  This year, perhaps even more than prior years, we need your help to support these organizations and ensure they have the tools and resources to continue their noble mission.

My Story
As many of you know, I’ve joined the Board of Directors for both M4K Richmond and Richmond Friends of the Homeless (RFH) in recent years to help support our local community.  I’m proud to be part of two incredible organizations that positively influence kids’ lives who are in incredibly difficult situations, mostly of no fault of their own, allowing them an opportunity and positioning them for greater success.  For these organizations to accomplish such wonderful work, they need people like YOU to help them in their mission! 
M4K Richmond improves the quality of life for local children through individual fundraising, partnering with local charities and businesses, and having a little bit of fun with facial hair.  Basically, we grow mustaches for a month as a marketing tool to raise money for local children's charities.  Founded in 2003, this volunteer-run organization began with just 2 philanthropic guys raising only a few hundred dollars for children’s charities while having some fun with facial hair. Now, with over 150 men, we have raised over $1.4Million to spread across the community.  In 2010 M4K Richmond was incorporated and received recognition as a 501(c)3 nonprofit public charity by the IRS.  Last year “The Wiggler” raised $2515 and with your help, I’m looking to eclipse that this year.  Being able to deliver huge checks to these various foundations confirms the amazing things M4K is able to accomplish and the impact made possibly by loyal and generous donors.
Richmond Friends of the Homeless was founded to strengthen and enrich the lives of the disadvantaged and homeless in our community.  RFH supports underprivileged children across Central VA by working to alleviate hunger, providing supplies and tools to help children excel through school and providing enrichment activities and warmth.  We serve meals 7/days a week many of whom are children and provide baskets full of nourishing foods to struggling families to avoid children going hungry.  From Thanksgiving meals to Christmas parties with Santa, toys and gifts, RFH is able to “lean in” to those children missed by the Angel Tree and other giving organizations.  Impoverished children are often not afforded the tools, support, or environment to thrive and RFH has found numerous creative ways to engage and empower children who perhaps don’t get the support elsewhere.  This support includes every aspect of their lives from health/hygiene to school supplies and mentoring to providing tools and opportunities to make something special of themselves.
