Thank you for your support!
Several members of the RIA/Flash community have rallied to raise money in support of The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. Basically, we’ve shaved and are now growing (or trying to grow) beards so that more needy and deserving kids can have toys to open this holiday season.

You can DONATE NOW to support our cause.

The following are RIA/Flash professionals and others with big enough hearts who donated $50 to shave and participate in this cause:
