$27 for $20 in quarters

The Laundry Quarters Delivery Startup Is Dead (And in Hell?)

The Laundry Quarters Delivery Startup Is Dead (And in Hell?)

Some things are too precious to last in this brutal world, and Washboard, a startup that mailed you quarters to do your laundry, is one of them. It is, against all odds and after only a week in business (“business”), shutting down.

The number of people willing to pay $27 for $20 was not exactly what Washboard’s founders predicted, I guess, although Washboard blames its payment processor for its demise:

Some business models are too good to be true.

Bullied Girl and Stormtrooper Armor

Katie the STAR WARS Girl Gives Her Stormtrooper Armor to Another Bullied Girl « Nerdist

Katie the STAR WARS Girl Gives Her Stormtrooper Armor to Another Bullied Girl « Nerdist

Four years ago, Katie was in first grade and she was bullied because she used a Star Wars water bottle at lunch. Other kids told her Star Wars was only for boys, and Katie was so impacted by their taunts that she wanted to use a pink water bottle instead just so they’d leave her alone. Katie’s mother, Carrie Goldman, wrote about the incident in her column on Chicago Now, and the internet responded with support for Katie. She learned many other girls of all ages love Star Wars, and it helped restore her self confidence.

In 2012, Katie decided she wanted to be a Stormtrooper for Halloween to support the 501st Legion. Members of the charitable group had recently been targeted in a mean photo slideshow posted after Celebration VI (a Star Wars convention). Katie’s mom reached out to the local garrison to ask for advice on how to make a Stormtrooper costume, and the 501st Legion took it upon themselves to make a custom set of armor for Katie.
