The High Five. Since the very first man used a rock to kill his supper, we have used various collisions of our ten-digit extremities in order to greet one another and express approval. Though many styles have risen and fallen in popularity over the years, it’s the simple palm-to-palm up-top hand clap that has remained steadfast as the de facto way to say, “thanks, man,” or “hey, congratulations,” or even, “way to punch that bear in the face, bro.”
We love the high five. It communicates more in a split second that what a dozen words can (or, depending on the circumstances, what a dozen words shouldn’t). It’s less awkward than a thank-you card. And nothing says “awesome” better than a high five.
At Man Crates, we dig the two-hand salute. That’s why we’re thrilled that today, April 19th is National High Five Day. We’ve been high-fiving everyone in the immediate area, and we want to get you in on it, too. That’s why we’re offering to give you five bucks off your order (between now and Saturday, April 21st) with the coupon code 5FORCANCER.
We also managed to find an awesome charity that’s using the high five for the highest (five) cause: cancer research (http://www.stayclassy.org/events/11th-annual-national-high-five-day/e9118). So for every crate you order using the coupon code above between now and Saturday, we’ll also donate five bucks to the American Cancer Society.
After all, beating cancer is something that everyone can high-five about.
