The minute those Christmas decorations come down, inevitably, the Valentine’s Day hearts and cupids go up. Singletons surely dread it, but there’s a way to cheer up them and/or the “Mad Men” fetishist in your life.
JD Beebe designed the “Hamm-o-gram” “to make anyone lonely on Valentine’s Day forget about their moody blues.” For five dollars, you can have a personalized card — not an e-card — picturing “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm, mailed to a soon-to-be deliriously grateful recipient.
And guess what? Not only will you be bringing the joy of hot Hamm to others, you’ll also be donating to charity. Beebe explains: “I came up with the idea easily enough — Jon Hamm rhymes with gram (brilliant I know) — but I do like my silly projects to do some good. In an effort to be philanthropic and not get sued by the Hamm brigade, I chose A Caring Hand (for bereaved children and families) as a charity partner. This was simply because Mr. Hamm actually lost his parents at a young age, and since I couldn’t find any charities that he himself donated to I wanted to make it personal enough that he might see the good in it.”
Everyone wins with the Hamm-o-gram. Could Charlie Day Chocolates be next?
