This seems like those plaques or awards YouTube sends to its creator when they get like a billion views or a billion followers. Nice gesture Andy and team. Thanks for offering

What sensitive info could possibly be kept by WSO? Even credit card data is pretty useless. The transactions get denied or revered basically. Bank account info, also the banks don't let people rob them. Basically not much to fear but fear itself

First of all, thank you for doing this.

Also, a heads up that EU regulations are changing after July 1st. International shipments are subject to different customs and tax regulations than before. More information linked below. It would be very helpful if KingKong's in the EU would receive their silver banana before July 1st 2021 to avoid complications or even charges.
I don't know the exact details about this new set of rules though, but the last thing we want is DHL or another logistics firm to add an expensive handling fee.………

thanks for the heads up, ultimately it's up to the company that creates/ships them, but we'll do the best we can to get them the mailing addresses quickly
