Buy Danny Gokey’s Glasses. And some other crap.

March 13, 2009

For some reason, I suspect this is a Frauen-run operation, or at least someone trying to make a quick buck…but yeah, now you can buy Danny Gokey glasses.

Welcome to Danny Gokey Gear. Obviously, there is something about a portion of the sales being donated to Sophia’s Heart Foundation. Hmmm…Pretty interesting…considering it never says HOW MUCH or what PERCENTAGE goes to the charity. What? You just tack a name of a charity onto your little e-comm business and expect the orders to come flying in?

Check out the Genevieve Portia frames, which Danny Gokey Gear claims graced Gokey’s face during Tuesday night’s performance of P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)

A lot of people have wondered how Gokey can afford so many pairs of designer glasses. An FBIM member (obviously) posted this comment awhile back on a Gokey fan blog:

Great article! I just wanted to let all those “haters” know that there is something called INSURANCE and also Favor of God!! Danny got a GREAT deal for about 5 or 6 designer glasses for the price of ONE. That stuff don’t happen to everyone but hey! the man has gone through a lot and he well deserves it. I also wear designer glasses and I can tell you that I have NEVER paid over $20 for them!! People need to relax and quit making negative comments! Go Danny J. We love you bro!

So you know…it’s insurance, silly! And because he is favored by God!

(I suspect Gokey Gear is run by these people, and they just stuck some ugly glasses that kind of look like is into “inventory” as a way to make a quick buck from people doing searches on Danny Gokey eyewear. I checked the WhoIs on the owners of the site, too, but they seem to be privately registered. Perhaps its Frauen, misguided financial opportunista, Faith Builders, friends or family. Who knows. But they’re even selling digital images for like oh, $10 a pop.)

I’m not sure why there is a Danny Gokey concert t-shirt, because, well…aren’t those usually produced for tours?

    According to the site:

    “How much will we donate? will donate 10% of every sale to Sophia’s Heart Foundation.


    Because we beleive in this foundation and we greatly appreciate Danny Gokey as well as his story.

    This website is not affiliated with Danny Gokey or Sophia’s Heart Foundation. ”

    Quit all your jibberjabbing!

    lol! Danny has a friend from his church that works as an optometrist so he gets a big discount. If I got Affliction Clothes at a big iscount I would have nothing else in my closet, oh wait… I don’t have anything else in my closet.

    Too bad I don’t get a discount and pay 200.00 per pair of pants and 80.00 per shirt…

    I must be a horible person because I use the money I work hard for to buy the things I like…

      That’s some discount. He’s admitting to owning 20+ pairs, at $400 a pop, at least. That’s a lot of money that could be going to REAL causes (not scammy fake ones created to milk gullible people via a tv show).

      DGB – which relative are you, and how much commission are you taking per sale?

      Anyone and everything associated with Dorkey appears to be a scam and a con. Like you.

        Yeah. And they just say a “donation” will be made with every sale.

        Yeah. Right. Wonder how they’re doing out there in Denver with their new business.

          A ‘donation’ of one cent?

          These people are scum and need to be reported to the authorities for ripping people off and falsely pretending to be charities/charitable.

    what the hell? he must be lying about his eye insurance or else he is doing something shady. I have really good insurance and even so, I still had to pay over $400 for the rest. my glasses are lulu guiness and they’re not even that big. ugh.

    Can we see your financial report and all that you buy?
    What does it matter that he has so many pairs of glasses? Some people collect cars, purses, shoes, electronics, etc. He just so happens to collect glasses that are on his face. SO WHAT! I say, ROCK THOSE GLASSES DANNY!

    Nice Blog!

    And I like the post/article. There are too many blogs out there without personal opinion! I mean, isn’t that what a blog is all about?

    Well, yours is full of opinion. I like your blog, even if your trashing my stuff at least it is blog worthy!

    Just thought I’d clear up the concert T thing, It’s actually portraying a concert, not representing a shit to be sold at a concert. It’s like taking a picture of the sky and calling it a sky picture.

    Anyway, great blog, lot’s of interesting things in here, I will be visiting often! Thanks!

      So for whom are you selling this merchandise? And who are you?

      Many people may be reluctant to buy anything when your WHOIS info is private.
