Frequently Asked Questions
A: Yes, really.
Q: WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A GROWER?
A: For 30 days you grow a sweet mustache and fundraise from your friends, family and personal network and the money your raise is pooled to send to our charity partner. We have periodic check point events, in addition to our kick off CLEAN SHAVE event and culminating with our STACHE BASH party. Please see our events page for this years events.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I BECOME A GROWER?
A: 1) Register on M4KTC.com website before Clean Shave and pay stache tax.
2) We will send you a personalized link to your fundraising page.
3) Share your link via email, text & social media and ask your network to help you raise money for a great cause!
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.
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 M4K America first started in 1999 they have raised over $12 million for local children’s charities. Yes, growing mustaches. At some point it starts to feel legitimate.
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 April to make your donation. Make sure to specify what Grower you are supporting.
Q: HOW DO I GET INFORMATION ABOUT BEING THE NEXT M4K CHARITY PARTNER?
A: Check our website in Jan/Feb and Facebook for announcements. We are looking for local charities that are focused on children.
Q: IS IT POSSIBLE TO WIN SEVEN OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALS WITH A MUSTACHE?
A. Yes, Mr. Spitz you know that it is. We didn’t forget you.
