Five Rules for Mustache Month

1. Mustaches only – whether you’re makin’ or fakin’, we only want to see hairy lips!

2. Be clean-shaven night of January 31 – no cheating or getting a head start. (Starting later? Clean shave that day!)

3. Talk about Mustache Month – whenever, however, wherever (this isn’t Fight Club).

4. Check in at least once a week – post a photo of your progress on your MM Profile.

5. Be awesome!

Come out to enjoy some of KC Bier Company’s finest. If you’ve already signed up online as a Mustache Maker or Mustache Faker, or if you sign up on the spot, you’ll get brew for your crew. If you’re a Maker and show up with facial hair, we’ll have a barber from Sole Patch Men’s Shop on hand! Everyone is welcome and yes, we’ll have a camera to capture your clean slate.

Let it Grow

Mustache Makers will be growing soup-strainers, lip caterpillars or face lace while Mustache Fakers are creatively finding other ways to make a social media splash (no, we don’t mean ice buckets!). Meanwhile, everyone will be getting friends, family and total strangers to become Mustache Donators to support Carousel. Your profile will connect to social media, but you can also spread the word by email, snail mail, videos, posters, picket signs, billboards or word of mouth.

Post update photos at least once a week to let your Bristle Boosters know how your cookie duster is coming along. They’ll be able to see your coins as well as your crumb catcher.

Bristle Bash to show off your ‘stache!

Bring your friends and celebrate your awesomeness!

Gather for the Bristle Bash at Chicken N Pickle where we’ll view the Lip Sweater Line-Up, tally the totals and award prizes. Costumes in support of your favorite Mustache Maker or Mustache Faker are welcome! View on Calendar.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, of course. You may sign up until the very last day, but you’ll have to be clean-shaven the day you sign up and post a photo!
Sure. Have your donors write checks to Kansas City Hospice Foundation and collect all the cash you can. You may deliver to our office, send checks by mail or bring it all to the Bristle Bash on February 28.
Nope! You figure out what your going to do that is mildly humiliating and eggs on your peeps to give money to kids in hospice. Of course, you’re not going to win any growing awards, but we have prizes for you, too!
Even one is too many! Joking aside, the needs of families with seriously ill children are many and that’s why Carousel is here. From babies (even before birth) to young adults, these kids need more care than their families can possibly provide alone. Please help us make sure they have everything they need!
