April Monthly Subscriptions Theme Annoucement
You know ‘em, you love ‘em – it’s a Darth themed month.
As spring rolls around each year, it becomes everyone’s favorite time. No, I’m not talking about flowers blooming or longer days. Everyone is gleefully awaiting the return of twitter’s favorite red panda in a Star Wars uniform, Darth.
If you’re not familiar with them, Darth is an anonymous twitter account which usually tweets about a select few topics: dogs (pets in general), all things potatoes, and of course red pandas. Occasionally, we’ll get a pollical take but Darth generally keeps it pretty light - which Twitter definitely needs more of. Their account also features many self-portraits of Darth, doing various activities, in full Darth Vader attire.
For this month’s sticker and magnet, it seemed only right to welcome Darth out of their yearly hibernation with a themed dedicated to my (and probably also your) favorite red panda.
NEW THIS MONTH – Additional Club Level and Donating Back
I’m super excited to announce that moving forward 10% of the sales of each subscription every month will be donated to a featured "non-profit of the month", which will likely have a connection to the art theme. This month’s non-profit is food-based because of Darth’s love of potatoes.
We will be donating 10% of April sales from subscriptions to Feeding America, a network of food banks helping and working to end hunger in the United States. According to the USDA 38 million people, including 12 million children, face food insecurities (not knowing where their next meal will come from). Hunger disproportionally affects Black, Latino and Native American communities at a higher rate – all of which have seen the rate of food insecurity increase by 20-24% during the Covid pandemic. In just 2021, Feeding America helped to provide 6.6 billion meals.
This month we added a third “Combo” Level where you get one of each item.
