15 yr Anniversary Celebration to be Remembered
It was a great year in 2012 celebrating my 15th year. Meeting so many dildo fans, visiting all the retail stores, raising just over $13,000 for local charities… made it a year I will remember for a very long time. Thank You to all who participated and an extra thanks to those of you who were generous with your donations. I am humbled.
Palm Springs MYOD a hit
A great time was had by all at Gear in Palm Springs this Wednesday and Thursday. We did some unique toys ( a hand-less arm dildo from an arm with a hand for example! ) and raised some good $ for the Ranch Recovery Center… to the tune of $2,100. Thanks to all who participated and to Gear for hosting this event in their store.
Seattle and Ptown MYODs a Hit
It was my first visit to both DogHouse Leathers in Seattle and Full Kit Gear in Provincetown as both are fairly new to the SquarePeg family, and I had a really great time in both towns. Both crews are fun and full of energy and showed me great hospitality. $2,025 was raised for the Chicken Soup Brigade in Seattle, and the Aids Support Group of Cape Cod was the recipient of $1,600. Thanks again to all the dildo makers, I think a good time was had by all! Total funds donated to date have topped $10,000!
NYC MYOD a great success
What beautiful weather we had for what was my first visit to The Leatherman in NYC and my biggest MYOD workshop to date. 9 guys made 12 toys in all over the 2 days. A few brought sculptures, we did a few fists, one penis, and, one ear of corn! (photos on the MYOD page) When I was told that the beneficiary of this event had a donor that was going to double any donations coming in, I decided to do the same. As a result everyone decided to up their contributions and we collected $1,000 in all, which I then doubled to $2,000… so the Ali Fourney Center will benefit from a $4,000 overall contribution. Congrats to everyone, and Thank You to all who participated, I had a blast!
If you’d like to contribute to the center and have your donation have double impact, now is the time. Go to AliForneyCenter.org to see what you can do to help homeless LGBTQ youth.
