December Update


Today marks the last day of A Beard For A Baby and we are so sad to see it come to an end! Many of you know that 2012 was a difficult year for us....but 2013 has brought with it much joy and blessing and ABFAB is a huge part of that! A bajillion thanks to everyone who has participated in and given towards this little fundraiser of ours. We are humbled, overwhelmed and filled with gratitude for all that the Lord has done through you.

We just sent out our final update, which you can read here. Or, for a condensed version, check out the bullets below:

  • In the past 6 months, the Lord has brought in $25,025. We are thrilled to announce that our adoption is now fully funded!!!
  • Bearded Gospel Men gave us and fellow Beard Grower, Philip Hatter, shout outs! To read their posts about us, click here and here. BGM helped us get our start back in May and we were stoked to be highlighted by them at the end of this gig as well. We love you, BGM!
  • We're having a party! Join us as we celebrate the end of ABFAB and Moses' 1st birthday. He will still be in Korea on his birthday but we can think of no better way to honor his life and acknowledge all that the Lord has done in ABFAB than by celebrating with you guys. Details below!


  • Jordan McClinton raised the most funds this past month (and overall!) He wins the prize of his choice and we are oh so thankful for all of his help.
  • For more dirt on who raised what, here is a glimpse at the Beards who raised the most:
DJ Hofmann (who doesn't really count since it's his fundraiser and all, but it's still fun to say how much his beard is worth): $8386.33

Jordan McClinton: $1462.70 

Luke Damoff: $1204.95

Matt Tonne: $969.12

Sean Bryant: $942.34

Luke Baublet: $781.06

Tim McKnight: $769.50

Michael Head: $712.80

Lee Bertram: $649.14

Justin Wendorf: $618.92

Asher Pirtle: $603.33

(Of course, we are beyond grateful for every single Beard Grower, no matter how much was raised. We receive every donation, no matter how big or small, as the Lord's provision and thank each and every one of our guys for all that they did to help us fund our adoption!)

That's all for now! 
Much love,
the Hofs
