Week three update! The sweet 'stache is filling in nicely and as we approach Thanksgiving the gravity of what we are raising money for really sets in. To think of the families being supported by ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation and Children's Hospital Foundation that are spending their Thanksgiving in the midst of treatments, praying and giving thanks that they have one more Thanksgiving together. Or those who rely on Feedmore so they even have a meal at this time of year. And our partners at SCAN helping to ensure a safe environment that kids can live free of child abuse. I hope you can help us support these organizations and their missions and give some extra thanks that you might not need their support. 100% of your donation will go to them.
Week 4 'Stache
Week 4 'Stache
It's almost the end of growing season and while my sweet ‘stache growing skills are clearly off the charts, apparently my fundraising skills leave a lot to be desired. I am only 1/3rd of the way to my goal but hopefully all the turkey coma, Black Friday and Cyber Monday fog has worn off and my supporters are ready to push me across the line. 

If you have not taken the time to look at the amazing organizations we are supporting, I highly encourage you to check out some of the work that they do starting with ASK and FeedMore.

ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation, where Leslie serves on the board, is a unique organization. In light of the significant number of charities and funds that go to cancer research ASKL serves a different purpose. They provide Assistance, Support and Kindness to children and their families who are undergoing treatment and ongoing support through life. The examples of what they do to try and mitigate the impact of the long road of cancer treatment will overwhelm you with emotions that run the spectrum of feeling. The sadness of the stories these courageous kids are fighting is always balanced by the amazing support that ASK provides. Not just the day to day, but the specific needs a family might face during that time. One of my favorite stats is that 100% of the ASK stay with their peers in grade. Just think about what it means to get the tutoring and academic support to not be held back even with the tremendous time and effort that cancer treatment takes.  The stories are endless and the Kindness is boundless.  Will you help make sure a child’s journey gets this support and kindness?

And FeedMore, it is hard to put words to the emotion that comes to mind when I think of a hungry child. I have been very fortunate to know where my next meal is coming from for most of my life, but more than 47,000 children, or 1 in 7, in Central Virginia do not know when or from where they will receive their next meal. These programs do an amazing job of helping with this tremendous problem.

M4K is a non-profit that passes 100% of your donation through to these organizations and provides additional support to help them use the money in strategic ways.  Please consider supporting my effort and donate even a small amount on my behalf.

Thank you!

Tim
