The inaugural Gibout Toys Golf Classic 2014, recently held at Stonebrooke Golf Club was a huge success. With the help of the golfers, sponsors and silent auction donors, we were able to raise a total of $5,566.07 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospitals. Despite the rain in the second half, everyone was in good spirits and excited to be a part of the event. One of the golfers summed it up best by saying "We're here to support St. Jude, the golf was just a bonus." We couldn't agree more!
Thanks again to the many sponsors, golfers, volunteers and for everyone that donated to the silent auction. We couldn't have done it without you and were honored you chose to spend your day with us. You can see photos from the tournament by visiting our Facebook page.

Peter Gray has written a wonderful article about the benefits of play and how it shapes the person we will eventually become. Read the full article here "Give childhood back to children: if we want our offspring to have happy, productive and moral lives, we must allow more time for play, not less"

We're happy to report that Gibouttoys.com is secure against Heartbleed. All keys and certificates have been re-issued as of April 8.
During the middle of day on April 7th, the Heartbleed issue became widely disclosed. The Shopify network security and operations team immediately set to work to protect our hosting infrastructure. By 7:00 p.m. they had rolled out a fix across core infrastructure, and by midnight all secondary systems had been secured. The operations team continued to work into the night, and by the following day, all keys and certificates had been re-issued.
Because of the rapid response of our operations team (faster than Google and Yahoo, for example) we haven’t detected any sensitive data being compromised. As a general precaution, we advise that you regularly change passwords, and other sensitive credentials like payment gateway and API credentials.
This would be a good time to update all such passwords.
