Mustache Update: Growing Strong, but your help needed!
Thanks to the generosity of so many of you, I (and my mustache, Rocinante) have raised more than $5,000 from 175 people for the Kids Care Fund at Children’s National Medical Center, through this year’s Mustaches for Kids DC campaign.
With just over 24 hours to go before tomorrow evening’s Stache Bash at RFD, I am hopeful that I can reach the outrageous goal of $7,500, and retain the title of DC’s Fundraisingest Stache. But my fundraising archnemesis, Spanky, is gaining ground fast (currently at $4,700+).
Can you help me regain the title by donating at http://bit.ly/JacquesMustache2011 ?
Here are three good reasons to do so:
- You like kids, and you believe in the goals of the Kids Care Fund which pays for uncompensated care and outreach in low-income communities, providing access to top-quality medical care at Children’s National Medical Center.
- You like mustaches, or you hate mustaches, and you’re donating because mine will be gone in just two days.
- You like competitions, and you want to back the winning horse.
If any of these are true, or if you’re just feeling generous, I hope you’ll consider donating (any amount helps), reblogging, or spreading the word to friends and family.
My mustache Rocinante (because growing a mustache is nothing if not quixotic) and I thank you!
