Jayne Hat proceeds to Can't Stop the Serenity

Browncoats, we hear your concerns about the cease and desist on Etsy Jayne Hat sellers!

We weren't involved in that process, but we have reached out to FOX and we've definitely heard what you've had to say. (We know you guys have Vera to back you up.)

As a result, we've decided to donate the profits from all Jayne Hat sales on our site to Can't Stop the Serenity, a Browncoat charity dear to ThinkGeek's heart that raises funds and awareness in support of Equality Now. We'll continue making that donation until we run out of stock of Jayne Hats.

We hope the Hero of Canton himself would approve.

BadCat said this 497 days ago.
meaningless icon! Thank you, TG. Many of us do, indeed appreciate this move. I know you were not involved with the process and really, you got the sh*t end of the stick in this deal. But thank you, so very much, for making an honest effort and doing your best to try and put things right in any way you can. You have restored what little faith I have in this world of corporate greed.

meaningless icon! Very shiny. The disgusting amounts of money I've thrown at TG feels even more justified. Next purchase will be the Jayne hat, despite the fact that FL allows for wearing it maybe three times a year. Or I will suffer for shinyness. :P

meaningless icon! Thank you!

meaningless icon! Thank you SO much! Charity is one of the biggest aspects of being a Browncoat and I know that a lot of Browncoat charities were raising funds for Equality Now and other charities through the profits from their Jayne hat sales and since they can't do that it is so wonderful that you guys have stepped up to fill that hole.

meaningless icon! I saw the full backlash history this morning (your post of yesterday makes a lot more sense, now)-- TG: thanks. Not just for carrying the hat my hubby bought me for Christmas, but for being so good to everyone. I know you're trying to do damage control (even though you're not to blame), because TG's reputation IS that you cater to (and LOVE!) fans and geeks and nerds. Well, we love you, too. And knowing you're donating proceeds to CSTS is an act of good faith that can't be ignored. :)

meaningless icon! Although I do appreciate the gesture of donating to Can't Stop the Serenity, I know of many instances where Kids Need to Read or other Browncoat charities were the beneficiaries. This really hurt a lot of people and small businesses.

meaningless icon! <3 Thank you for restoring my faith in you. I was going to suggest it earlier, but didn't want to be pushy AND bitchy in the same message. ;)
KittiesOnAcid said this 497 days ago.
meaningless icon! And that's why you guys are just so freaking awesome I can hardly stand it! Keep up the good work!
A. Smash said this 497 days ago.
meaningless icon! Love you guys! Way to go, taking a frustrating situation and turning it on it's head for awesomeness.
Matriarch of W Geeks said this 497 days ago.
meaningless icon! And this is how one deals with something not your fault that effects your business. Brilliant. Are you watching this, Appl*b**s? This is how you do it.
Zalpha said this 497 days ago.
meaningless icon! Very classy move. Thank you for continuing to be awesome.
Wishful Geek said this 497 days ago.
meaningless icon! Thank you for being such a class act. So many of the hats made by fans are made for charity proceeds. You guys are made of awesome! Shiny!
ctofine said this 497 days ago.
meaningless icon! Way to go, TG! This is an amazing show of support. Browncoats unite!
commandantskip said this 497 days ago.
meaningless icon! I'll admit--the whole fiasco made me go out of my way to purchase a "Ma Cobb" hat in protest, but your gesture in all proceeds going to charity makes me 100% happy about continuing purchasing from TG. (Good to know my geek points won't go to waste from previous purchases!) Thanks again, you all rock.

buttercup said this 497 days ago.
meaningless icon! I knew why I love you guys. Thanks for being the shiny (get it?) light of hope. :)
TripTucker said this 497 days ago.
meaningless icon! First, I love your stuff. That being said, I figured you were just caught in the middle of the fuss and Fox being greedy. So it's great you're giving the profits to CSTS and Equality Now. Keep up the selling of great stuff!
Marina Kalinin said this 497 days ago.
meaningless icon! I'm really glad, now I can stop trying to use the force to choke you...all that was giving me a mean headache!
Pixelduck said this 497 days ago.
meaningless icon! Proud to be a browncoat today! Thank you ThinkGeek for doing the right thing.
theater_chick said this 497 days ago.
meaningless icon! Not only am I grateful for ThinkGeek's wares (though my RFID Blocking Wallet might disagree), I am grateful that you guys listened to your (and Firefly's) fans and did the right thing. <3 Thank you.

meaningless icon! Thank you Think Geek...one less thing for us to fret over :)

meaningless icon! Shiny! and incredibly classy. Proud to be a customer of yours :)
Carrissa said this 497 days ago.
meaningless icon! Now THIS is yet another reason why I love you guys, and choose to use my gifting cash here, if I can. Way to keep a customer, you silly, wonderful monkeys!
ArcticWren said this 497 days ago.
meaningless icon! You guys are the shiniest shop in the verse. Thank you for standing up to the big guns and supporting the little guys (I'm one)
rhaben said this 497 days ago.
meaningless icon! Austin Browncoats approve this message! It's a shame it all had to come to this, but mad props to you guys for finding a sensible & generous solution to this mess! I've never been so proud to be a Browncoat! Keep flying & stay shiny! :)

meaningless icon! How's it sit? Pretty cunning, don't you think?
BearGriz72 said this 496 days ago.
meaningless icon! You people are the roxxors.
Derek DeVries said this 496 days ago.
meaningless icon! Truly awesome move, ThinkGeek!! This is why I've been a loyal customer for years. You guys rock.
Chickwriter said this 496 days ago.
meaningless icon! Some money will still go to Prime Malefactor Riddle Junction, so I still say boycott
gulegule said this 496 days ago.
meaningless icon! Glad y'all have sided with the Independents as much as possible on this. ;-) This has spurred me to place a long-delayed TG order!
mawrter99 said this 496 days ago.
meaningless icon! This was an incredibly classy way to deal with a situation you didn't create. Bravo Zulu, ThinkGeek.
Jaye said this 496 days ago.
meaningless icon! The Fans: "Somebody help! This man has been shot and needs medical attention NOW!" ThinkGeek: "It's okay! We made a great meal for him to eat when he's better!" Don't get me wrong, it's great that you're giving money to charity, but you're not solving the problem. To do that, TG needs to pull this item off their site and refuse to sell any more hats until Fox/Ripple Junction cease and desist the cease and desist. Giving money to a charity unaffiliated with the transgressor does nothing, but taking potential money away from them will cause them to rethink their action. If anything, boycott ThinkGeek until the C&D are dead.

meaningless icon! I knew y'all were awesome, but now you're just that much more awesome than before. Does that make you awesomer? :)
