In 2011, the Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management raised an astounding $20,700. I hoped we could rise as high in the fundraising this year, but was very skeptical. I mean, last year, we aimed for $10K and somehow made it to $20K. I didn’t think we could be that lucky two years in a row.
Of course, luck had nothing to do with it. Between our 80 members and all of ours/their generous and supportive friends and family, we raised a grand total of $24,434! Incredible. Continue Reading “Movember Moustache Photo Diary 2012: Days 28, 29, 30, and the end of the month Mo recap and wrap up”

It’s been a helluva weekend…
I’m proud to announce that The Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management has reached our $10,000 fund-raising goal! Boom!
On November 18, just after landing in Chicago for the big Mustache Bash at the Gibbons Household (more on that soon!), the M.M.G.M. surpassed $10K… and kept right on going! Since then, we’ve raised another $1,400+ (Not including funds raised at the Mustache Bash… once again, more on that soon!) putting us at a current total of $11,433. Amazing. Many, many thanks to everyone who helped make this possible with a donation or by spreading the word. You’re all wonderful and we couldn’t have done it without you!
Now, after a bit of discussion, Dan and I have decided to set a new goal: $15,000. We’re over two thirds of the way there with 10 days left in the month, so why not shoot for a new crazy-ambitious fund-raising total, right?! If you haven’t donated yet, we need all the help we can get reaching this latest wild aspiration so donate now!
And now, let’s catch up on some mustache photos… Continue Reading “Movember Moustache Photo Diary 2011: Days 18, 19 and 20”
When it rains, it pours.
The Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management is on quite a hot streak. We are also on a roll. Other phrases indicating we are doing well…
Yesterday, the M.M.G.M. raised nearly $1,000 and moved our fund-raising total up to $8,906. And… at the end of the day today… $9,731! Boom! That’s nearly another $1,000! Plus, we’re less than $300 away from our $10K goal. Amazing.
And now, mustaches! Continue Reading “Movember Moustache Photo Diary 2011: Day 17”

Between the two branches of the Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management, my brother Dan and I have recruited 39 solid dudes for this year’s Movember campaign. Each and every one of these distinguished gentlemen is giant among men in his own right, but one recruit this year has me particularly excited: my dad, Dave Gibbons!
