You remember it: some three months ago, Daniel Levy hosted Saturday Night Live. The skits were some of the best of the show in recent memory. In one in particular, the queer members of the cast joined Levy in spoofing the now-decade old It Gets Better campaign. The resulting snippet was hilarious, and the organization itself got in on the fun, creating an iguana pin inspired by the occasion. Now, the pins are back for Pride.
When they were first released, the little keepsakes sold out. The organization restocked them, and they sold out again. We credit it in part to Levy and the "Dan Levy effect" as the star tweeted out that the pins were available. He and his large fandom have developed a reputation for raising money for various charitable causes. This one in particular raised over $20,000 for the organization.
