To empower people in taking back their “weirdness”, while giving back to others and leaving the world a little better than the way we found it.
Ticket Weirdo is the fastest growing online ticket membership company in the country!
Ours is a true ‘Rocky’ story. Beginning as a small company in 2012 under the name Allen Group, today we service 1,000’s of individual members and 100’s of corporate client accounts across North America.
We were founded by Chris Gellings, a husband and father of three who originates from a small middle-class town of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. A couple major events in Chris’ life shaped Ticket Weirdo and helped crafted our mission. While in College, Chris lost a close High School friend, Sgt. Kirk Straseskie, a United States Marine during Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003. Later in 2015, Chris lost his beloved Father, Wayne Gellings, after years of health complications with stroke, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.
“Our lives are not guaranteed. Because life is so short, and we’re only on this ride for a short while, it is imperative that each of us to stop wasting away our lives worrying about things that don’t matter, and make it a priority to spend time making lasting memories with friends, family, and loved ones.”
Thus, Ticket Weirdo was developed. A revolutionary membership family that doesn’t exist anywhere in the online ticket space. Never before has an online ticket company “cared” about helping you and giving back to others. Ticket Weirdo not only enables people to make memories with loved ones, but also to do so without being taken advantage of with service fees, achieve discounts, earn cash-back rewards, have the utmost customer service, and give back to charity at the same time.
“My Mother (Rene Gellings) always taught me to leave things a little better than the way I found them. So after losing a friend in the armed services and Father to health complications, I felt the effort was needed to give back in some way to help the friends and families of those who have lost their battle, or have suffered.”
This is why when you become a member of Ticket Weirdo, you’re not only taking steps to engage in memory-making events, but you are also donating a portion of your membership, along with your annual ticket purchases and apparel purchases to charity. Each year Ticket Weirdo donates to charitable causes such as Wounded Warrior Project, St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital, American Cancer Society, The Humane Society among many others.
“It really doesn’t matter what someone achieves in life. What matters is what has been left behind and what people say about you when you’re gone. If a person can leave behind a positive existence that has changed lives of others for the better, they will have “truly existed”. I can only hope that I can do as good a job as my Mother & Father did with me for my own children…”
As Chris says…
Life is short. There are no guarantees. It is up to you to write your story. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones. You deserve it. Stop living for things that don’t matter.
