    Damn, now I wish they made them for more than just Blackberries and iPhones…where’s the droid love?

    Might need to buy one and give it away to someone who has one of those devices just to support the promotion!

    Very cool of them to do this, but I’m a little surprised that they aren’t also doing Pride-themed iPad cases. Such a big canvas to work with, and so many new iPads to protect. :)

    @Andy That’s exactly what I thought too…

    I was a little skeptical of the organization ChrisKids. The description here seemed a little vague on any help for gay kids.

    But the ChrisKids web site has plenty of mentions of specifically helping homeless gay kids.

    I don’t need one of their cases, but I’m glad the organization is open to helping gay youth.
