Pen Guy Gives Hilarious Talk about Art Cars at Ignite Sebastopol – Video

Pen Guy Gives Hilarious Talk about Art Cars at Ignite Sebastopol - Video

Last Wed I had the amazing opportunity to speak at Ignite Sebastopol, a place to say whats on my mind but keep It short. I had 5 minutes and 20 slides running at 15 seconds each. The title of my topic was called “If I can create and art car so can you”. I had a blast and so did my audience who happen to include Tim O’Reilly who had this to say about my talk on his tweeter account:

Pens dropped off at the City Life Community Center
Pens dropped off at the City Life Community Center
These pens were just laying on the big barrel I had at City Life last week and probably the last at that location. All the tenants will be moving out so I had to reclaim my barrel and change my mail in address: The Pen Guy P.O. Box 994 – Forestville CA – 95436. Thank you City Life for allowing me to have pens sent there.

I just picked up four more locations near and around Santa Rosa where you can drop off your old used pens. I still need to build a recycling bin for Video Droid and drop the one I made for Cafe Noto in Windsor. I also picked up ten more blank bins that I will decorating at the Sonoma Family Expo today from 3:30 to 8:00 pm for any one who want to get in on the pen recycling gig.

  1. Cafe Noto-Windsor
  2. Rileystreet Art Supply – Santa Rosa
  3. Video Droid – On Mendocino Ave SR
  4. Corrick’s – 4th Street Down town SR

Check out the Google maps on the side bar for even more locations near you, by the way a great way to generate more traffic for your business and do something nice for environment and The Pen Guy.

Pen Donation Barrel Now at The Bay Model in Sausalito

Pen Donation Barrel Now at The Bay Model in SausalitoLast Saturday I went down to Sausalito to drop off my 5th pen recycling barrel at The Bay Model. I was there from 12-3 hanging out with the my new fans. I then drove over to San Rafael for free music in the park for another three hours. It was a great way to spend a beautiful Saturday afternoon. A big thanks goes to Mari Tamburo who made it possible for me to be there.

Redwood Gospel Mission Thrift Store – Pen Recycling Center – City Kids Festival, August 22, 2009

The Pen Guy and the Mercedes Pens Art Car City Kids Festival

Good news, the Redwood Gospel Mission Thrift Store has just agreed to become a pen recycling drop off center for the one million pen drive. There will be a two bins, one located inside the thrift store and the other one in the back were donations are dropped off. So remember, don’t just throw away all those dead ball points, dry erase and marker pens, instead recycle them along with your other donations at the Mission Thrift Store on 1064 Piner Ave. in Santa Rosa, Mon – Sat, 10 am to 6 pm.

City Kids FestivalAlice Lowe who agreed to collect pens for the Million Pen Drive is the outreach and fundraising events and is also the contact person for the City Kids Festival that will happening Saturday August 22, 2009, at Juliard Park in Santa Rosa. The City Kids Festival is an all-day outreach, primarily to needy children in Sonoma County. There will be Free backpacks and school supplies! Free books! Balloon animals, miniature golf, snow cones, face painting and much more more! Many Sonoma County churches volunteer their time and effort and money to provide the supplies for the kids and run game and food booths during the event. In 2008 1800 backpacks were given away and this year they expect more that 2000 boys and girls to attend. The event is free and open to all with no charge for the games and food. The free backpacks are given to those children who pre-register for them at RGM.They are also currently accepting donations for more school supplies needed for the City Kids Festival.

I have had the pleasure of attending this event with my Mercedes Pens now for past couple of years and plan to be there again this year hanging out as the Pen Guy. This event would also be good time for you to come out with your kids and drop off any old pens that you would love to get rid off.
