Cancer does not make Flipped Bird happy but fighting it does. Enter Maya Thompson. You can not read Maya Thompson’s blog and not be moved in some way. The raw emotion of her heart wrenching words  document her real time experiences and provide enduring legacy for her three year old child who valiently fought Neuroblastoma cancer.  Although young Ronan (“Ro”) Thompson lost his battle with cancer last year, his legacy lives on through his mother’s words and The Ronan Thompson Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for a rare form of childhood cancer.

In the past year The Ronan Thompson Foundation has attracted the attention of several music and TV stars including Katy Perry, Bret Michaels and most recently Taylor Swift and Katie Couric. Taylor Swift was so moved by the emotional words in the blog she wrote a song from it and debuted it on the all-star Stand Up To Cancer telethon last month. It quickly went to number one on i-tunes and proceeds from sales of the song will benefit cancer related charities. See her emotional performance below.

Flipped Bird was surprised to learn cancer research receives significantly less funding than other types of cancer and in doing our small part Flipped Bird is debuting limited edition Flipped Bird bags with special benefits. Flipped Bird will be donating 100% of the profits from our new limited edition “Rockstar Ronan” bags to The Ronan Thompson Foundation.

The Flipped Bird Ronan bags are getting rave reviews from some early birds who have the bags and a few found their way to celebrities. All Ronan bags can be flipped for a unique look with purple hues that are a tribute to Ronan’s favorite color and The Ronan Foundation.

Flipped Bird was contacted today, April 1, 2011, regarding the remarkable resemblance of a crop circle that mysteriously appeared overnight to that of our logo. Some speculate that the logo has significant meaning for the future of fashion on earth and a otherwordly reminder that a “Flippin’ Be Happy!” lifestyle should be adopted.

Over the past year Arizona has had its share of bruises from political decisions, horrific events and public relations snafus. Arizona has a history of decision making that does not always conform to the status quo of the rest of the nation and often ruffles the feathers of much of the Arizona constituency. As catalyst for controversy it does seem appropriate that a company called Flipped Bird nests in the Grand Canyon State. Moreover, Flipped Bird is proud to support its local community. We make our products locally, purchase materials from local suppliers, support local schools and charities, and promote other local design talent. Thanks to New Times for helping us spread a little local love. Click on the flag below to read the New Times Blog.
