Well – it’s that time of year again….. Let’s Grow This Thing! 

For the 10th consecutive growing season, I come to ask for your support of the “The Wiggler” and our mission to improve the quality of life for kids in need across Central VA.


Last year, while staring into the face of a pandemic, ~200 growers amassed just over $500,000 and were able to deliver HUGE checks across Central VA and even today, kids in need are feeling the effects of your generocity. 
 
  
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 200 men, we have raised over $2 Million 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 $4001.00 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.
 
THE ASK       
  • Follow “The Wiggler’s growth” through this 10th historic growing season.
  • Consider donating and supporting this amazing mission – make a real difference for kids in need!
 
THE IMPACT 
  • “The Wiggler” has amassed $20,325.00  (since 2012)
  • M4K Richmond has raised $2,025,908.00 (since 2012)
  • RFH has raised $95,996.00  (since 2018)

Admittedly, the 2021 growing season snuck up on me this year and somehow, we are approaching the mid-season check point tomorrow.  As an organization, we currently sit at $124,583 towards our goal of $506,000+.  The Wiggler has come out of the gate a bit sluggish amassing only $265.00.
 
While my totals have been slow to come in, I am proud to say my Stache is sprouting quite nicely – a thick rug-like collection of follicles with a sprinkling of gray to ensure a truly distinguished look.
 
I hope you’ll join me in helping to make a material difference for the children across the community in need – illness, abuse, poverty. . . . the list continues.

With only 10/days remaining in our 2021 growing campaign, I am happy to share, “The Wiggler” has had a great week (thanks to each of you) tallying a whopping $2288.00 moving the meter from $265.00 to $2,553.00 – WHAT AN AWESOME WEEK!
I hope each of you has a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends and THANK YOU AGAIN for your support of “The Wiggler” and the remarkable charities we support through your generosity.
