A: Yes, really.
Q: What if my girlfriend says I can't have a mustache?
A: Dump her. Its that simple. First, its not going to work "long term" if she can't see the beauty of your lip sweater. Second, once you start growing you will have scores of random women giving you cell phone numbers to try to get a taste of your cookie duster.
Q: Is there any way I can support you without actually growing a mustache?
A: Yes, several in fact. First, you can simply support one of the growers by making a donation. Second, you can come to the checkpoint parties. If you are a girl, you can join as a StacheGroupie (there are lots of them). We anticipate quite a group of women to be left in our Burt Reynolds stud wake.
Q: Seriously. For real for real?
A: Absolutely. Since our first campaign in 2009 we have raised over $4.7 million for local children's charities. Yes, growing mustaches. At some point it starts to feel legitimate.
Q: Who gets the money?
This year we have selected Kid Can Community Center and Child Saving Institute as our Charity Partners (learn about them by clicking on the menu at the top).
Is this the most fun way to raise money?
Yes, but it is more than that. This is the most fun way to have fun. Sure, its great that we support all these awesome charities, but living the mustache lifestyle is rewarding in and of itself.
Q: Can I grow a goatee?
A: No. Mustaches only. No goatees, fu manchus, beards, punk patches, soul patches, cabbage patches, mutton chops, pork chops, karate chops, chin snuggies, jaw poppies, Egyptian curlers or anything south of the mouth. Sideburns are allowed but must stay north of the stache.
Q: How do I donate? Is my donation tax deductible?
A: Yes, your donation is 100% tax deductible. Just click on the Donate Now button in May to make your donation. Make sure to specify what Grower you are supporting.
Q: Do I have to go to all of the checkpoints?
A: No, but if you are able to it makes the entire month much more fun. At the very least you should plan to attend Clean Shave and Stache Bash. If you have never been to Stache Bash, just trust us that your life is incomplete.
Q: How do I get information about being the next M4K Charity Partner?
A: Check our website every February for announcements. We usually accept applications and make our announcement in early April.
