Who We Are :


We appreciate your support so very much.
Together we can a make a BIGGER difference :-)
I am a school administrator & teacher, prior USAF & Eagle Scout in Central California. A few years ago I started part time BBQ catering and donating dinners for auction to Make A Wish. That activity has lead me to this. We make cool goods to sell to you in limited quantities and try to DO GOOD with the funds. The shipping department is me and my wife Andrea who is an angel for putting up with all my nonsense. We take zero profits for ourselves, this is our lil way of trying to make a difference in the lives of others.. 
On April 6, 2016 we were recognized as an official 501c3 organization (EIN- 47-1084811).  The reality is, we were following the Newmans Own model all along if yer familiar with them.  I have many friends who help behind the scenes that we have labeled Team Hate. They do everything from help grow and grind peppers for Hatedust to folding boxes for mass mailings. I couldn't do this without any of them. To date we have donated over $1,300,000 to charities from this venue and an associated auctions . We have a very active forum via   Facebook  and The Usual Suspect Network.
