Today is Earth Day and OMUNKY is doing a little something special to celebrate. 50% of all OMUNKY profits from today will be donated to the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund.

Like I mentioned my post about Johnny Cupcakes’ Suitcase Tour, there will be tour exclusive tees sold at the stops. Miami is very lucky because there will be a super limited edition tee in addition to the tour exclusives. This shirt is a collaboration between Johnny Cupcakes and Friends With You. If you don’t know about Friends With You, you should check them out right away. This group of artists produces some awesome art and toys!

The shirt will be limited to 50 copies, so if you want one, you better show up nice and early to the Miami stop of the Johnny Cupcakes Suitcase Tour on Saturday, April 10!

If you haven’t heard, Johnny Cupcakes is heading out on a countrywide tour starting this Friday! The first stop will be in SoHo, NY on April 2, and the tour will end with Johnny back at his Boston shop on May 9. At each stop, Johnny Cupcakes will be setting up shop at various businesses, including bakeries and art galleries. What’s neat is that Johnny will be selling tour-exclusive items right out of his suitcase, something that he did back when the company was just getting its start.  I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to finally getting to meet Johnny! If you’ve followed me since Day 1, you’ll know that I attended one of the Johnny Cupcakes lectures back in May of 2009. It’ll all come full circle when I see him again this May!

As I mentioned earlier, there will be six exclusive designs sold at the stops, along with some other tour exclusives. Johnny put up a sneak peek on his site earlier. I’m really excited to see all of these in person!

This past Monday evening, West Potomac Academy in Alexandria, VA, was fortunate enough to have guest speaker John Earle, founder of Johnny Cupcakes, stop by for a presentation. Earle is an entrepreneur who has a success story like none other. Ever since he was in grade school, Earle always found ways to make money, whether it was to sell little prank toys (i.e., whoopee cushions, itching powder) or candy in school. After high school, he invested in a button maker and made pins to sell at schools and concerts. They were a big hit, and he made quite a profit. However, his best idea was yet to come.
