This time round, they’ve created The Down-Under Donation Dildo to help their home country, Australia, which is ravaged by bushfires.
If you haven’t been keeping up with news about the Australian bushfires that started in September 2019 and is still going on today, to date, more than 1 billion animals have died, more than 100,000 people have been told to leave their homes, more than 2,000 houses have been damaged, and at least 28 people—including three volunteer firefighters—have been killed.
The area devastated by the fires is equivalent to 155 times of the size of Singapore.
The Down-Under Donation Dildo has a base that’s shaped like the map of Australia, and the country’s iconic koala bear embossed on the shaft. Each sex toy costs AUS$69 ($64.15).
100% of the profits made from The Down-Under Donation Dildo will be donated to various bushfire relief efforts and charities, including Humane Society – Wildlife Emergency Response Fund and Australian Red Cross. To date, they have raised $22,000 and have donated to four organisations.
On top of paying for the dildo, you can also choose to make additional donations of AUS$5 ($4.65), AUS$10 ($9.30) or AUS$15 ($13.95).
