Bottle Openers With A Cause

I want to introduce you to Ex Boyfriend. Not my ex boyfriend but a cool apparel company based in Baltimore Maryland featuring illustrations by artist Matt Snow.  Not only is Matt a great artist, he’s an animal lover and advocate and donates 5% of all sales to the Maryland SPCA year round.

Ex Boyfriend

Fuzz Aldrin, DJ Kitty and Pirate Kitty (there are non-kitty themed ones too!)

But from now through April 17th, in honor of Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Month,  Ex-Boyfriend will be donating 100% of the proceeds from these well-designed and useful animal-themed key chain bottle opener.

Get a few now and use them as small “thank you” gifts to people in your life (dad, boyfriend, postman, trash collector), use them to decorate a gift or save ’em  to use as stocking stuffers at Christmas.  Did I mention Matt will also provide FREE SHIPPING on this specific item to sweeten the pot!  So support drinking while helping cats and dogs (and an independent artist) for only $6.50 a pop!

In addition to bottle openers, Ex Boyfriend carries an assortment of animal and non-animal themed t-shirts (for women, men, dogs and babies), hoodies and messenger bags.  There’s even a blog with cool stuff – much of it animal related.

And if you’re curious about how the company got its name, Matt explains, “More than a few ladies call me their ex – although I am now happily coupled up* – but really the name was inspired by my first series of t-shirt designs. I liked the idea of t-shirts as conversation pieces, tees you could wear to a bar that would encourage that cute guy or girl next to you to actually say hello and ask you about your shirt. Tees you could wear to rack up a few of your own exes.”

*Figures. Hrumph.

PS – As always, I’m not gaining financially by the sale of these products and have not and will not be getting paid for writing this post in any way.
