Introducing This is what an ALLY looks like!
about 3 years ago – Sun, Apr 09, 2017 at 11:08:39 AM

This is what an ALLY looks like is a new design inspired by the #ILookLikeAnEngineer campaign from a few years back. There are more and more people engaged and interested in defending the rights and protections of the more vulnerable members of their communities, but they don't know how to show that they're allies. These are Allies: people who are privileged enough to be safe from the discrimination, but who stand up and take action to show that the discrimination is wrong.

The shirt's text reads: "This is what an ALLY looks like. Allies may look different than you expect. #Look Deeper #WearMyValues #ImAnAlly." 

We're proud to release a design that allows every ally to show who they are and want to be.  

A portion of the profits from This is what an ALLY looks like will benefit anti-bullying organizations. We have selected an organization, but out of respect for them, we are awaiting their consent to share their name.  

This shirt is offered in white, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. We're offering white specifically to give the opportunity to tie-dye it in whatever colors may best represent your organization or your cause! #AllyLooksLike  

Kickstarter kicks on Monday 4/10, 9am MST!

Introducing Liberty for All!
about 3 years ago – Sat, Apr 08, 2017 at 03:59:12 PM

Liberty for All features a Warhol-esque print of Lady Liberty wearing clothing characteristic of a variety of social, religious, and ethnic groups. Wear My Values believes that the rights, protections, and privileges of all people should be applied and defended equally. Whoever you are, whoever you love, whatever you believe, we believe in Liberty for All.

Liberty for All is the headlining design for our #LookDeeper campaign. Lady Liberty represents the best of American values: generosity, acceptance, and compassion. We encourage you to look for Liberty, wherever you are, in everyone you meet.  

A portion of the profits from Liberty for All will benefit refugee relief organizations. We have selected an organization, but out of respect for them, we are awaiting their consent to share their name.

We are offering this shirt in sand, grey, orange, and garnet. #LibertyForAll

Kickstarter launches Monday morning, 9am MST!

Final Financials and a Donation to the ACLU!
about 3 years ago – Fri, Apr 07, 2017 at 11:45:23 PM

Donation!

Today, I made a donation of $112 in the name of Wear My Values to the ACLU.  It's not as high as we'd hoped, but it's a good start towards what we want to be doing.  I've put the details of the final financials below, for those of you who are interested.

What's next??

Our next Kickstarter (#LookDeeper) will kick Monday morning around 9am MST (I have to push the button manually, so it's not going to be exact...).  Join us in our campaign to create a 'stop and think moment' for the entire country!  I'll be rolling out a few more updates this weekend ramping up to the campaign launch. A special preview for you of one of our new designs:

Not Red, not Blue, AMERICAN speaks to the partisan divide in the United States today. With this shirt, we are issuing a challenge: Make a statement and say that you are not defined by your last vote or political affiliation. As Americans, we choose how to treat our friends and neighbors.  

Not Red, Not Blue, AMERICAN
Not Red, Not Blue, AMERICAN

We choose to seek commonality, to #LookDeeper than our last elections, and acknowledge that the person standing next to us as just as American as we are. The text on the front reads: "#LookDeeper #WearMyValues" and on the back reads: "Not Red, Not Blue, American #LookDeeper #WearMyValues #ImAnAmerican."  

BACKERS will determine what organization or cause a portion of the profits from Not Red, Not Blue, American will go towards. There will be a post on Wear My Values' Facebook page starting Monday to submit your favorite charity to the list! 

We plan to offer this shirt in charcoal grey, white, and purple! #NotRedNotBlue

Campaign Financial Details

The Kickstarter goal was $2002, and we had $2384 in pledges (thank you all so much!), exceeding our goal by $382.  After all the ordering, shipping, and final arrangements were made, the things that we listed in our Kickstarter budget ended up costing us $375 less than was pledged.  Which is awesome!

However, there were a variety of additional expenses that I didn't expect or know about as I was planning the Kickstarter budget...  which were not so small.

Additional Expenses

The additional $900 startup investment covered these costs, but they were not covered in the Kickstarter budget.  I am choosing to take these costs as lessons learned for Wear My Values and for myself, and donating 30% of the remaining funds from the Kickstarter to the ACLU.

I feel it is a good choice, and in line with both my values and the values of our company.  I am not, however, able to do this for campaigns in the future; they will have to be profitable for me to donate profits.

Thanks!

Thank you to those of you who made it this far into the update!  Looking forward to happier topics tomorrow, and kicking off on Monday morning.
