Condoms for a Cause: ConCon.org Helps Underserved Communities Have Safer Sex
With every order, ConCon.org will donate contraceptive funds for those in need. Plus, you can win big by entering its Facebook competition!
If you’re looking to get frisky but dread adding a box of condoms to your basket at the supermarket, ConCon.org has got you covered. Offering a wide selection of items to take your weekend up a notch, you can shop easily and discreetly (read: without judgmental cashiers and snooping shoppers).
And every time you order, you’ll be doing good for underserved communities. Part of the proceeds from every purchase goes to donating contraceptives for those in need–both domestically and abroad. Plus, this company is dedicated to educating college students about safer sex.
“I made the decision that I wanted to build an organization where I knew that 100 percent of the effort we invested into the organization would be applied toward making a global impact,” Cory Cappocia, founder of ConCon.org, told us in an exclusive interview. “Since our launch on December 1, 2011, we have dedicated most of 2012 to connecting with college students to promote safer sex. On some campuses, we have handed out free condoms to the students while at other schools we have hosted presentations for various student groups and organizations. Our experiences while meeting with students during our college campus tour have often left us feeling that a huge educational gap still exists around the dangers of engaging in unprotected sex in an environment where casual sex is common place.”
To top it all off, ConCon.org is offering a latex-filled Facebook competition beginning on June 1, 2012 in celebration of Gay Pride Month. The prize? A year’s supply worth of the condoms of your choice. To participate, Like the company’s Facebook page and answer the phrase “I use contraceptives with PRIDE because…” on its wall. We’d also suggest encouraging your friends to comment on and Like your post, because the most popular poster is in for a very special delivery.
“By running promotions which require the community to actively engage in a discussion in order to qualify to win a prize, our goal is to assist in breaking down the social barriers which currently exist and are preventing these open discussions from occurring today,” Cappocia explained.
Doing good while feeling good has never been easier! Who’s ready for 365 days of play?
