Pleasure Chest Donates 15% of Web Sales to Sex-Ed Site
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Adult retailer The Pleasure Chest has given customers of its web store, ThePleasureChest.com, the option to donate 15 percent of their purchase amounts to the nonprofit Scarleteen through April 30.
Scarleteen is a nonprofit organization that provides accessible, sex-positive education and support for young people via their website, Scarleteen.com. Since 1998, Scarleteen has been a reliable resource for people without access to comprehensive, medically accurate sex education.
Recently, the organization has been struggling to meet its fundraising goals, and was even in danger of a temporary shutdown. According to Pleasure Chest reps, an anonymous donor has offered to match any donations made to the organization through May 1, up to $10,000.
“Scarleteen has been an indispensible resource, even for our own sex educators,” said Kristen Tribby, the Pleasure Chest’s director of creative development and strategy. “April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Scarleteen’s education around abuse and assault is a vital part of the conversation.”
Those wishing to contribute 15 percent of their purchase at ThePleasureChest.com can use the promo code SCARLETEEN at checkout.
