Skip the pizza, donate to Skinny Genes!

Hello fellow pop-punkers.

This is your opportunity to prove that the pop punk’s (still) not dead. Donate below and pick up some awesome merch to wear for when it’s time to mosh again and scream until your throat gives out. I’m personally a big fan of the 3/4 baseball tee and the beanie complete with pom, since they were both my idea.

On a more personal note, Laura (co-host of Radio Children) and I had the role of telethon director thrown into our lap very suddenly (but willingly), and I’d love to make this the best year ever for telethon as a validation that we’re doing a decent job. I know for a lot of people, this past year and change has been rough, but if you are in a financial position to give this year, please do. And remember, we didn’t have a telethon last year, so why don’t you double your donation?


P.S. Please read the descriptions for all the swag below. I wrote them all, and I think they’re funny.
