I went to Japan. I came back. While I was gone, we raised a lot of money! The Ministry hit the $15K mark! The Midwest is rockin’ in at $9,508 and the Northwest is solidly supporting with $5,478! Pretty damn good… and we’ve even got a few days left! Continue Reading “Movember Moustache Photo Diary 2012: Days 13 through 27 roundup”

Well, we made it. Thirty days ago, we were a group a fresh-faced fellas. Today, we’re a mighty team of mustachioed men. A team, by the way, that’s raised $18,537! Continue Reading “Movember Moustache Photo Diary 2011: Day 30!”
We did it!
The Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management has reached $15,000 in donations! Huge! I’ve been writing a lot of these “Goal: Met!” posts this Movember. Definitely a good thing. Continue Reading “Movember Moustache Photo Diary 2011: Day 26, 27 and 28”
I’ve been a bit lax with the updates recently. Sorry about that! Holidays, they’re busy!
But the past three days haven’t just been a turkey-based type of busy-ness, they’ve been busy with Movember fund-raising, as well! It’s 10 pm on Friday, November 25 and—as of right now—the Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management has raised $14,874! We’re less than $150 away from our new goal of $15,000! Not too shabby.
Another November day, another set of mustache photos… Let’s get whimsical over some whiskers, shall we? Continue Reading “Movember Moustache Photo Diary 2011: Day 21”
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”
Wow. Where to start…?
Well, we have officially hit the halfway point. Huzzah! We’re 15 days in with 50 percent ‘staches… and we’re doing incredibly well! The Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management has raised a stunning $7,944—only a bit above $2,000 away from our $10,000 goal! Our killer Midwest division surpassed the $4k landmark today—they’ve raised $4,123 of our total. My Northwest division is right on their heels with $3,819 in donations.
Regardless, as a team, we are doing incredibly well and would like to send along a big, big thank you to all the amazing people who have donated. You’re all heroes in your own right! Continue Reading “Movember Moustache Photo Diary 2011: Day 15”
