2015 Final Results

Hey guys, yesterday wrapped up another great month of mustachery goodness.  Thank you again to all of those who supported.  This year we raised an additional $4,082 to fight global poverty, bringing out cumulative total to almost $80,000!!!

You guys are such a blessing for all of your contributions, and me and my facial hair are forever grateful of your support.  We raised enough money this year to feed 50 kids for an entire year or to provide an entire village with clean water for the next decade.  Thank you again for all that you do!

Happy Thanksgiving!

This is now our 7th year for Right In The Mustache. Dana reminded me the other day about a blog post I did four years ago.  Sosie was just a baby and it was my first year doing the fund raiser as a father.  My heart has always been broken for the orphans of the world, but becoming a dad really took it to a new level.  In the post I talked about how I would watch her when she would cry for food, and I couldn’t imagine not being able to provide that for her.  I couldn’t imagine having a kid that was hungry… and now for the Paul Harvey “rest of the story”.

When Dana brought up this old blog post the other day, it was because at the time we did have a son somewhere else in the world, and God just had not revealed it to us yet. Jones was almost 2 at the time, and he had spent the bulk of those two years in the hospital.  He/We were blessed that he was in an orphanage where he did have access to food, though we know the portions were small and the variety was limited.

While we were in the adoption process last year, we received a size update on him. He was almost 5 years old and weighed 26 pounds.  I’m happy to say that a year later this little chunker is up to 38 pounds and outgrowing everything we’ve bought him.  We celebrated Thanksgiving with just the 5 of us on Thursday, and I’m pretty sure this will always be his favorite holiday.  He spent all morning pointing to everything we were preparing just saying “Ma-ma! I want dat.”  The little dude ate more than his daddy that day.

I share this with you guys because he’s just one orphan. One out of 143 MILLION worldwide, and our work here is not done!  The month is almost over, so I really encourage you to go to www.fmsc.org and make a donation today to Feed My Starving Children.  When you give $50 or more, simply email your confirmation to donations@rightinthemustache.com and let me know your shirt size, so I can send you an awesome shirt to say “Thank You” for partnering with us in this fight to punch global poverty Right In The Mustache. Thanks for all of your support!FullSizeRender1

This year I did something a little different than #Movember … A friend of mine started #rightinthemustache and it’s awesome. If you donate $50 to ‘Feed My Starving Children’ or ‘Blood: Water Mission’, he’ll send you a BA tshirt (not a crappy cardboard one either.) In the last 6 years he’s helped raise $73,706 to fight global poverty. I donated to FMSC and my donation alone sends 216 nutritious meals to kids in need and that’s just rad. Check out rightinthemustache.com to learn more… Or don’t and just stare at my Lt. Aldo Raine impression for a little longer. #Mustache #Mo #Charity

RITM2015

Hey guys, I can’t believe it, but it’s that time of year again.  The time of year when flannel becomes my new personal dress code.  The time of year when ‘basics’ go crazy on the Pumpkin Spice.  The time of year when we force our kids to pose next to hay and indian corn so that we can pretend on social media that a miserable day of whining and allergies was a Judy Bloom-esque fall fantasy land.  The time of year when I make women oddly uncomfortable (and mildly excited) with my fantastic mustache.

I have to be candid with you all; it almost didn’t happen this year.  As most of you are probably aware, Dana and I adopted a son from China this summer, and let’s just say it didn’t make life any easier.  Jim Gaffigan describes going from 2 kids to 3 like drowning and then somebody handing you a baby.  Now pretend that baby is a 5 year old who doesn’t speak English.  I just wasn’t quite sure how I would pull this off.

However, as November approached the lure of the stache got stronger and stronger.  Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.

After all, let’s face it.  There are still 139,999,999 orphans in the world, and our work here isn’t done.  About 21,000 people die every day from hunger.  Another 21,000 die every day from not having access to clean water.  Yet Americans spent $340,000,000 last year on Halloween costumes for their pets.

Can I repeat that… 42,000 people.  Real people.  With names and families.  They die EVERY DAY because they don’t have food and/or water.  Meanwhile, we spend the entire GDP of Micronesia making our cats look like Fonzy.  I CAN’T LIVE IN THIS WORLD.

So here’s the plan… it’s very simple.  There are two fantastic organizations we support.  Feed My Starving Children provides healthy balanced meals to orphans all across the world at the cost of just 22 cents.  You can feed a kid for a year for $80.  Blood:Water Mission provides clean water solutions where just $1 can provide clean water to 1 person for 1 year.

My request to you, is that you visit one of these two websites and donate $50 or more.  When you do that, you’ll receive a free limited edition Right In The Mustache 2015 t-shirt.  For those of you who have supported us in the past, you know these shirts are no joke.  We don’t play around with those janky free shirts you typically get from a charity that make your nipples bleed they are so uncomfortable.  These shirts are as soft as a baby panda’s nose and more comfortable than a hug from your grandma.  Here’s this year’s design:

White print on a vintage heathered red tee (regular or V-neck).

White print on a vintage heathered red tee (regular or V-neck).

So, are you going to change the world and get an awesome free t-shirt for doing so, or are you going to dress up Mr. Pickles to look like Hulk Hogan?  Both ideas are awesome, but one of them is just a little more noble.

To donate to Feed My Starving Children, click here.

Once you donate, email your receipt to donations@rightinthemustache.com and let me know your shirt size and if you want a V-neck or original.

God bless you guys for all your support!

Dallas.
