Thank you for helping make a child's dream come true

5 weeks without a shave

5 weeks without a shave

After five weeks of looking increasingly seedy, I’ve completed my Mustaches for Kids fundraising campaign. And readers of this blog and followers of thornley on Twitter contributed $450 for the Make a Wish Foundation. I’ll add my own donation to that amount. So, together, we raised a total of $1,000 to make the wish of a terminally ill child come true.

I continue to be impressed with the generosity of the people I meet through social media. You had no reason to contribute. You could have remained anonymously passive. Yet you chose to contribute to this cause simply because you were asked to do so.

Thank you to the people who contributed to Mustaches for Kids and the Make a Wish Foundation: John Wiseman, Dave Fleet, Parker Mason, Francis Wooby, Michael Seaton, Terry Fallis, Eden Spodek, Shawn McCann, Aimee Deziel, Andrea Clarke, Todd Van Hoosear, David Magil, Angela Kryhul, and Shel Holtz. You’ve earned my respect.

The morning after - clean shaven again

  • Glad to help out for a good cause, Joe.

    I would have doubled my contribution to see you keep the ‘stache until the new year, though.
