How We Give Back
Supporting Movements that Matter
Boobies, wieners and balls grace our cards so it's no surprise that we share content and resources that involve well, boobies, wieners, and balls. Breast cancer and testicular cancer aren't going to fight themselves, ya'll! We also get behind things that promote good vibes, acceptance, and equality.
At checkout, you select which non-profit 5% of your purchase goes. Pretty sweet, huh?
If you are a non-profit that could use some FDT lovin'? We'd love to talk about working together. Drop us a note, yo.

Testicular Cancer Foundation
Mission: To provides education and support to young men to raise awareness about testicular cancer, the most commonly diagnosed cancer among males ages 15 – 34.
Fighting a disease that affects a demographic that is young and feels invincible is an uphill battle, but that doesn't stop the badass team at the Testicular Cancer Foundation. As the leading provider of education materials in the country, they work hard to ensure every male knows the warning signs of the disease, and how to perform a testicular self exam. These guys know balls...
The Ali Forney Center
Mission: To protect LGBTQ youths from the harms of homelessness and empower them with the tools needed to live independently.
When LGBTQ youth come out of the closet, 1 in 4 face rejection from their family due to religious beliefs. Many run away or are thrown out of their homes, and rather than endure the homophobic violence that’s rampant in shelters, these young people take their chances on the street. And their chances aren’t good. Many develop substance use disorders or become depressed. Some are even suicidal. Our contribution to the Ali Forney Center helps keep the following programs running: six emergency housing sites, a 24-hour drop-in center, transitional housing opportunities, and their street outreach programs that deliver supplies and provide program referrals to keep homeless LGBTQ youth healthy.
