WO|Disc : USA-made frisbee/tug toy feeds orphaned children
Introducing the WO|Disc – a fresh new concept in the world of flying dog frisbees and dog tug toys. The WO|Disc is designed with unique benefits to keep your dog happy and keep you engaged globally. Each WO|Disc you purchase will feed orphaned children in Ethiopia!
There are 4.5m orphans in Ethiopia (yes, that “m” is for million!) and YOU can help them by purchasing a USA-made WO|Disc. Read the story behind WO Design and the WO|Disc below, then select your purchase level on the right. Thanks for your support!
The mission of WO Design (sounds like “whoa”) is to create, manufacture and sell consumer products that directly help widows + orphans in developing countries. Each WO|Disc sold will fund home cooked lunches for orphaned children in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. But, only with YOUR help! These meals are often the highest source of nutrition in their day.
WO Design is seeking to extend our partnership with Bring Love In (BLI) and will give funds directly to their efforts to create “forever families” by matching widows and orphans in creation of local family units in Ethiopia. Each WO|Disc sold provides funds directly earmarked for meals for orphaned children at BLI.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! With your partnership, we can help create tangible change globally, by feeding orphaned children. When was the last time you bought a dog toy and helped feed an orphan in need?!?
The WO|Disc production mold is currently in process, but we won’t be able to finish it without your help. The $7500 goal will provide funding for completion of the product tooling, material and packaging for our initial production run. Estimated completion of production mold (with appropriate funding) is 10/30. Allowing a few weeks for production and testing, initial products should be rolling off the production line in mid-November of 2015. Orders are expected to be fulfilled by the end of November.
Proof-of-concept models were fabricated with PolyJet rapid prototyping machines that simulate the soft elastomers we will be injecting for the final products. These new processes are invaluable for creating an accurate injection molded feel for testing.
The manufacturing will be done in Montana, using injection molded thermoplastic elastomers. Design, prototyping and consultation on the WO|Disc courtesy of Salient Technologies in Bozeman, MT.
Engineered with our proprietary soft and durable WO pet material, the WO|Disc cuts through the air … and, floats in the lake! The pliable material allows your dog to pick it up from flat surfaces with ease and will not hurt or damage their soft mouth.
Additionally, no PVC’s or harmful materials for you or your canine are found in WO pet material – it is FDA approved and BPA-free. The WO|Disc is guaranteed durable (click here for details) and it’s designed to be recyclable.
Each WO product is designed, produced and packaged in Bozeman, Montana. SO, when you purchase your WO|Disc … you are helping create change globally AND you are providing jobs locally, right here in the USA.
The WO|Disc features our WO signature “divots & bumps” texture that is sure to make this flying dog frisbee your dog’s favorite toy around the house or at the dog park. You can fly the WO|Disc for your dog to chase down … or, you can engage your dog in a game of tug. Either way, your dog is happy AND you helped feed some orphaned kids half way around the world! The size of the WO|Disc is appropriate for dogs of all shapes and sizes.
Size: 8″ diameter
Colors: Blue, Green, Cranberry, Yellow
At WO Design, we are VERY excited to partner with Ovation & RocketHub on their “Creative Studio” collaboration to bring you the WO|Disc!
