Most of us are looking for a memorable way to celebrate 4/20 but not sure how to go about it. Maybe you’re not fully vaccinated and want to play it safe, or feel like you’ve earned a good smoke sesh with a few close friends.
A unique cannabis gifting company, Birthjays wants cannabis consumers and enthusiasts to know that they don’t need to leave the safety of their homes to celebrate the high holiday. Topped with unique candle wicks, Birthjays are festive pre-rolled cones that come with a cake stake for easily placing on any cupcake, donut, or birthday dessert. Birthjays is partnering with Tommy Chong and 40-year donut legends, DK’s Donuts to celebrate the day that cannabis culture was born, April 20th. Birthjays and Los Angeles-based DK’s Donuts are often found in the center of special occasions and gatherings, so on one of the happiest days of the year for the cannabis community, these brands are combining forces to make up for all of 2020’s un-celebrated birthdays.
Michael Scherr, the Founder of Birthjays collaborated with cannabis comedian and counter-culture icon Tommy Chong to launch Tommy Chong’s™ Birthjays in February. Together, the duo is looking forward to working with DK’s Donuts to provide consumers with an enjoyable smoking experience and delightful cure for the munchies to follow.
Similar to how the Birthjay is a delightful hybrid of a birthday candle and a classic joint, DK’s Donuts is also known for jaw-dropping combinations, such as their famous croissant & donut hybrids called “ONUTS,” savory bacon-infused donuts, donut ice cream sandwiches, or “WOWNUTS,” DK’s waffle & donut hybrids. Mayly Tao, the current owner of DK’s Donuts & Bakery, took over the business from her parents in 2013 and modernized the concept to create its own donut community, expand to over 120 different types of traditional, specialty, and hybrid donuts, and uses its platform to advocate philanthropy and community. DK’s Donuts & Bakery has recently been featured in “The Donut King Film,’ produced by Ridley Scott and distributed by Vice internationally, telling the story of Cambodian-owned donut shop in this rags-to-riches tale.
For an entire year, starting on April 20th, 2021, all consumers within the delivery range of DK’s Donuts in Los Angeles can have a unique 4/20 celebration delivered by ordering 420 custom donuts through DK’s website. During these dates and while supplies last, donut lovers can use the code “LIT” to get a free Birthjay and a 10 percent discount on donuts.
DK’s Donuts was founded by two Asian-American immigrants who moved to the United States in pursuit of the American dream, which they found when creating their very own donut kingdom. To honor the humble beginnings of DK’s Donuts, raise awareness, and put a stop to Asian hate, this 10 percent will go towards The California Asian Pacific Chamber of Commerce Foundation (Cal Asian Foundation) a nonprofit organization aiming to enable workforce and economic development for the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community across the state of California. The Cal Asian Foundation is transforming AAPI leaders of tomorrow, providing them the leverage they need to pursue their dreams and make a difference.
If you’re outside of California, you can still order Birthjays on the company website or through Amazon. No matter where you are located, Birthjays will always arrive empty, so be sure to stop by the dispensary to get what you need to pack the empty cone once it arrives!
