The mustache hairs are looking extra creepy and rough this year.... it's so bad that I have to cover it with a mask! Hopefully by next week it'll look better than Justin Bieber's 'stache-growing attempt. 

 

I am blown away by your generosity over the first week... we are already at more than $1,500! Let's keep it going to exceed my goal of $5,000 and support the incredible organizations benefitting from this year's M4K fundraiser (Boys and Girls Club of Greater Lynchburg, CASA of Central Virginia, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Virginia, the Jubilee Family Development Center, Unified for Kids, Iron Lives, the Claire Parker Foundation, Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, the Miller Home for Girls, and Miriam's House).

Drumroll please…………. The ‘stache is officially back in action! I know, I know – you can’t look away.  

  

You all continue to amaze me with your generosity. We are already at more than $3,200! Let's keep it going to exceed my goal of $5,000 and support the incredible organizations benefitting from this year's M4K fundraiser (Boys and Girls Club of Greater Lynchburg, CASA of Central Virginia, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Virginia, the Jubilee Family Development Center, Unified for Kids, Iron Lives, the Claire Parker Foundation, Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, the Miller Home for Girls, and Miriam's House).

It's been an exciting week in 'stachville - it is filling in slowly but surely. This year, there are already too many grey mustache hairs to count.... but they just add to the distinguished look, don't you think??? 

  

I am so grateful for your continued support. We are so close to exceeding my goal of $5,000!! Let's push past the $5k mark to show even more support to the incredible organizations benefitting from this year's M4K fundraiser (Boys and Girls Club of Greater Lynchburg, CASA of Central Virginia, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Virginia, the Jubilee Family Development Center, Unified for Kids, Iron Lives, the Claire Parker Foundation, Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, the Miller Home for Girls, and Miriam's House).

I know you're all counting down the days until this caterpillar 'stache goes into hibernation until next November, so enjoy the photo above while it lasts. 

 

Thank you all for your generous support so far this year. Your donations will have a lasting positive impact on those in our community who receive services from the organizations benefitting from this year's M4K fundraiser (Boys and Girls Club of Greater Lynchburg, CASA of Central Virginia, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Virginia, the Jubilee Family Development Center, Unified for Kids, Iron Lives, the Claire Parker Foundation, Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, the Miller Home for Girls, and Miriam's House).  I have exceeded my goal of $5,000 and want to continue to raise even more for these deserving organizations!
