Slim Jim continues its support of the Doge community and its mission to Do Only Good Every Day with the launch of Doge-themed merchandise on Dogedrip.co.
DogeDrip is a startup founded and run by members of the online Dogecoin community. The merchandise comes on the heels of Slim Jim’s first NFT charity auction this past spring, which resulted in a $26,000 donation to support World Central Kitchen.
“Slim Jim is one of the first CPG brands to engage in the crypto space, with the Spring 2021 auction of our first NFT, Rocket Stick Special Edition, which raised funds for World Central Kitchen,” says Sarah Littel, brand lead, Slim Jim, Conagra Brands. ”We’re excited to take it to the next level with DogeDrip, heeding the call of the very supportive Doge community to finally offer items that can be purchased with cryptocurrency.”
With their shared focus on meme culture and disrupting the status quo, the Slim Jim and Doge communities are a natural fit. The new limited-edition Slim Jim merchandise includes two Doge-themed T-shirts and a baseball cap that can be purchased in cryptocurrency or as cash payment while supplies last. The shirts include the Seductive Doge design (a black T-shirt with the Doge face superimposed on an illustrated version of the Slim Jim ‘eat me’ guy from the brand’s iconic 1990s commercials) and the Rocket Doge design (a yellow T-shirt with the Doge surrounded by mini red rockets).
Since its inception, the online Doge community, with the Shiba Inu Doge as its meme-generating mascot, is on a mission to Do Only Good Every Day. In celebration of its new partnership with DogeDrip, Slim Jim will continue supporting this mission with an additional one-time donation to World Central Kitchen, a non-profit organization that uses the power of food to nourish communities and strengthen economies in times of crisis and beyond.
