Week 2.  Progress...
Week 2. Progress...

M4K Lynchburg is a volunteer-run organization that spun off of M4K Richmond in 2014 with the goal of raising money for local children’s charities while having fun growing mustaches. In it's first year nearly 40 Lynchburg based growers sprouted sweet mustaches for a month and raised over $30,000 for The Boys and Girls Club of Lynchburg and other local children's charities. In 2015 we grew on our rookie year success and raised over $53,000 for The Boys and Girls Club of Lynchburg and CASA of Central Virginia.  In 2016 we added our third charity, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Central Virginia and raised $86,000!!! In 2017 we added the Jubilee Family Development Center and raised over $140,000!!! We are adding two new charities this year, the Academy Center of the Arts and Impact Living Services. We plan to make 2018 the best year yet! 

 
Here's how it works: Each year, during the four-week Growing Season spanning November and December, Growers sprout sweet, sweet Mustaches. Per Mustaches for Kids bylaws, they shave their faces, except for the Mustache, a minimum of one time per week and solicit donations from friends, family, co-workers, and people in the community. Kind of like getting pledges to run a marathon. Without the exertion, cramping, or dehydration. Call it a facial hair marathon.

 At the end of the Growing Season, the Growers hold a Mustache Competition called the Stache Bash, which is a cross between a beauty pageant, dog show, and police line up. During the Competition, Growers, often in Mustache-enhancing costumes, are put through a test of mind, body, and Mustache and allow their facial hair to be evaluated by an independent panel of judges, and one Mustache is declared to be the "Sweetest.."

Shelley was SO excited to finally see "Hamilton".  I'm sure she's delighted that my mustache got to enjoy the show with us!
