Dear Tom,

I am writing you this letter because my nominee’s very essence screams “real father real men”. His name is Charles French.

Let me start by saying that Charles has no biological children, but is father to many. He has been nicknamed father Abraham making a playful reference to the biblical father of nations. I have a five year old whose father passed when he was 15 months old and Charles has stepped up to the plate to fill those shoes. He has a non-profit organization that teaches proper dress, dialect, demeanor, and business etiquette to young males in the community. In addition to working for the city, two years ago he started the Charles French label.  He hand makes ties, bowties, lapel pins, and pocket squares for men. For us ladies he makes scarves and lap cloths (the items you and jay hate to see in church because the cover up the ladies legs).

Lately he has expressed that he would like to take his business to the next level but lacks the funding to do so.  He needs for fabric, manufacturing fees, and a custom website. He also has a YouTube video that teaches people how to tie a bowtie with over 2 million hits. I believe in his abilities and ask you to help his vision come to life.
