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 $3.9 million for local children's charities. Yes, growing mustaches. At some point it starts to feel legitimate.
Q: Who gets the money?
We will announce our charity partner selection on April 1st. They will be local, they will primarily benefit children, and they will be awesome (they always are).
Can I participate virtually?
Yes. We will have in person checkpoints in 2021 but they will all be broadcast so you can participate virtually if you choose.
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 in February and Facebook for announcements. The application goes live on February 22nd. We are looking for local charities that are focused on children.
