Yes folks, today is Shaving Day, that magical day when all existing facial hair must go! Whether you woke up and shaved this morning before work, plan to shave with us at the bar, or will lather and shave before bed tonight, it’s all gotta go!
And to help you on your quest, come join us tonight, 6:30pm, at Pub 317! Meet your fellow growers, share in a drink, BRING YOUR FRIENDS, and grab some helpful M4K swag like buttons and business cards! We’ll have this swag at every Weekly Check-In, so be sure to come join in the festivities and support the cause!

Donorschoose.org has been around for 10 years but originated out of a Bronx high school where teachers experienced first-hand the scarcity of learning materials in our public schools.
Charles Best, then a social studies teacher, sensed that many people would like to help distressed public schools, but were frustrated by a lack of influence over their donations. He created DonorsChoose.org in 2000 so that individuals could connect directly with classrooms in need.
The mission at Donorschoose.org is to improve public education by empowering every teacher to be a change-maker and enabling any citizen to be a philanthropist.
It sure doesn’t get any better than that, folks.
Donorschoose.org is not very well utilized here in Montana, so this growing season will hopefully be dually-faceted: while raising money for classroom projects and sporting some upper lip fuzz it might get our local schools to create some projects of their own!
The other amazing thing about Donorschoose.org is their amazing support for Mustaches for Kids! If you’ll look to the right of the screen you’ll see an empty leaderboard. Soon, very soon friends, this leader board will be populated with each grower’s profile and friends and family will be able to donate to their favorite grower’s favorite Donorschoose.org projects (while keeping abreast of the fundraising efforts of other chapters across the continent)!

Hello Bozeman! You know that anytime is a good time to start thinking about growing a mustache. I am here to tell you that the best WAY to grow a mustaches is, of course, with Mustaches for Kids!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with this movement that is sweeping the nation, M4K is a loosely organized conglomeration of chapters all across this great North American continent. During the growing season (to be determined) participants grow sweet ‘staches while raising money for a children’s charity- exactly like a marathon, without all of the training and exertion. We like to call it a facial hair marathon.
Anyway, since you’re here, you’re obvoiusly curious. Check out the Mustaches for Kids home page and start convincing your friends they need to get in on this sweet mustache action. After all, it’s for the kids!
