Magic Wand is pleased to report the results of its successful and heartfelt Pride Pin Drive, which yielded over $6k in donations!
In an effort to celebrate LGBTQ identities as well as commemorate activism, the world-renowned true Magic Wand held a charitable drive to support California’s LGBTQ Connection and Louisiana’s Forum for Equality during Pride month.
Vibratex — the exclusive, official distributor of the Magic Wand Original, Magic Wand Plus, and Magic Wand Rechargeable — offered donors a unique (and adorable!) Pride pin featuring Magic Wand, along with other prizes, with proof of donation.
“It was so uplifting to help facilitate support for two wonderful organizations, both of which are doing such important work,” said Vibratex owner and Vice President Shay Martin. “We’re so happy that enthusiasm for our wands helped work some magic in support of LGBTQ Connection and Forum for Equality.”
After making a contribution directly to one or both of the named organizations, donors then submitted documentation to Vibratex in order to receive one of the following “prizes:”
$10.00 donation: Vibratex matches the donation and the donor received one Pride pin
$15.00 donation: Vibratex matches the donation and the donor received one Pride pin AND one additional pin of choice
A $40.00 donation received one Magic Wand Plus and one Pride pin
Unsurprisingly, the $40 prize was the most popular option selected by donors.
“It could’ve been the cuteness of our Pride pin or it could have been the opportunity to get a true Magic Wand Plus in the name of a good cause, but we think it was both!” says Vibratex’s Controller Nicole Rosselli about the $40 prize’s most popular status.
Vibratex offered an assortment of clever, cheeky second pin choices to those making a $15 donation. Options included a Yoda-inspired cutie, a Wonder Woman figure, and a GOT-type dragon with Khaleesi — but two choices stood out as distinctively in demand.
“People’s second pin choices also said a lot about the viability of women’s empowerment,” Rosselli adds. “Our Leia- and Ruth Bader Ginsburg-inspired pins were easily the most popular second selections.”
