$1 from every pin sold will be donated to Point 5cc’s Annual Trans Surgery Fund!
We posted a while back that we are always looking for partnership opportunities with LGBT/trans/allied businesses, and the response we have received is fantastic. We are exploring working with many different awesome companies and expect 2016 to be a great year!
We are pleased to share that one collaboration project going on now is with custom enamel pin-maker Kathleen B. She and friend Lander have created a limited run of these trans-themed pins where $1 of every purchase will be donated to Point 5cc’s Surgery Fund.
The pins, dubbed the “Little Pricks” line, highlight the trans symbol with a syringe for those who choose to pursue hormone therapy.
“Lander and I have been friends for a few years. Before I met him, I didn’t know anything about the reality of being transgender. Lander is a transgender man who began pursuing his transition in late 2011. He does a great job of educating people about the community. He is also the one who came up with the idea for the pins. We figured that since I sell custom pins anyway, why not make a design that not only spreads awareness but also gives back? Lander will be having top surgery/chest masculinization on February 1, 2016, which is also the date that the pins will be shipped.”
