I don’t know about you but I’m getting tired of having to scroll through all of the non-PEZ related posts on Facebook or Twitter until I get to information that I want to read-PEZ! For those of you older collectors you might remember we used to host Myspace4Pezheads. It was a good site what was only PEZ related. We didn’t mind sponsoring it, but the fees went up too much for us to justify the costs and people were going to Facebook. So we ended it.
Recently we started up another social site for subscribers/club members of the Fliptop Pezervation Society. But the site hasn’t gotten too much action lately.
So we have a perfectly good social web site & an app that isn’t really being used. So, we thought why not open it up to the public, open to all PEZheads. If we get enough people to come on board than we can expand the site to include more “channels” and groups. It even has a dedicated app! Cool! Best of all its free for the user.
Right now there are places to talk, buy or trade PEZ, we even made one place to hold auctions.
So, if this sounds like a place you might be interesting in joining please visit the site at http://fliptop.pez.me
The packages are starting to arrive and Ari’s Mom says thank you. I’ll share a couple pictures here below and share part of what she wrote, “with tears streaming down my face – tears of happiness and tears for my faith in humanity ! I thank you ! And I thank the complete strangers who took their time and their kindness and generosity to make a brave boy the most decorated soldier ! #pez badge of courage for ari ! Thank you !”
Everyone once in while I come across touching stories involving PEZ. I have one I am asking you to help. Perhaps we all can make this little boy’s 15thbirthday a special one. His Mom writes, “Ari is 14 and one of the biggest PEZ fans in the world! We call each PEZ his PEZ badge of courage! That is because his love of PEZ dispensers started early as a small gift given to him ay one of his hospital stays. And from there it became his PEZ badge of courage! No hospital stay or procedure is complete without his opening of some new PEZ! Ari has a rare chromosome disorder called triosmy 9 mosaic. It comes with a host of medical issues (spina bifida occulta, seizure disprder, arachnoid cyst, hearing loss, ADHD, tethered cord syndrome, special needs, g-tube for medications and he can not talk due to paralyzed vocal chords and severe apraxia). Doctors have said he would not live past his first birthday, as of February 16th Ari will be celebrating his 15th birthday! He is the most bravest, silliest, strongest and courageous boy you will ever meet and with each day I am more proud of him! When Ari had his wish granted by Make a Wish we rushed to do it in 2011. His wish was to meet Blues Clues and that he did!”
So long story short, his Mom was basically asking “PEZ Collectors News” for a little “Happy Birthday PEZ package” to come in the mail to help make Ari’s birthday special. I know PEZ collectors have big hearts and a few extra PEZ dispensers so I asked his Mom if it would be alright if I shared Ari’s story with other collectors and maybe we can make his birthday very PEZZY special.
She said, “I am humbled by your kindness and generosity and thank you for totally reinstalling my faith in human kindness!” She only asked that we do not share her information publicly. If you would like to send something to Ari please email richie@Pez.me and I will email you his address…
Please Welcome Back….
“The Fliptop Pezervation Society”
PEZ Collector’s Club!
PEZ Collectors News & The Fliptop Pezervation Society has been serving PEZ collectors since 1995!
Back in 1995- The Fliptop Pezervation Society started out as a collecting club with a newsletter, PEZ Collectors News was a print newsletter. A couple years later Fliptop merged with PEZ Collectors News and became the only print newsletter for PEZ collectors.
Here at PEZ Collectors News we always liked the “PEZ Collecting Club” idea. So, its time we bring back The Fliptop Pezervation Society as a PEZ collecting club again.
Club membership will include a subscription to the “Official Club Newsletter” (PEZ Collectors News) and access to “exclusive club member” offers. In the June/July 2017 issue of the club newsletter we will be offering our very first “Club Exclusive Collectible”.
It’s a limited edition collectible item that there is only 325 pieces available!
It will be first come, first serve.
