San Jose, CA (PRWEB) May 14, 2012
Cause-oriented company Meant4More Apparel has just launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise the funds to purchase their own screen-printing equipment. In a highly competitive market with lofty costs for each order, Meant4More realized that being able to produce their own t-shirts would mean expanding their brand. With the launch of the Kickstarter campaign, Meant4More provides an opportunity for their supporters and those who believe in their mission to help fund them at different levels. This campaign is live on http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1845005813/meant4more-apparel?ref=live from May 10 to June 10, 2012.
Backers are able to fund the campaign in amounts ranging from $1-$10,000 and reap impressive rewards including: limited edition t-shirts, tote bags, and even being part of the company’s documentary. “A successful KS campaign would mean a few things to us. Primarily, it would affirm the support of our friends and family toward our company and our mission. Additionally, a productive campaign would give us more control over our designs as we could purchase the machines to print our own clothing," co-founder, Primo Martinez.
Success in this campaign means reducing the costs for production, allowing Meant4More to utilize their resources to empower and encourage more people, which ultimately means giving more back to their charities. For each item purchased, 20% is donated to G.E.M.S. (Girls Educational & Mentoring Services) F.A.C.E.S.S (Freeing American Children from Exploitation and Sexual Slavery) and AFSP (the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention). Meant4More launched their brand in 2009 and have been touching lives ever since.
The brand was founded when Primo Martinez, lost his friend to suicide. Grief stricken, he wondered what he could have done to make his friend understand that his life was meant for more. The company has since embodied a passion for suicide prevention as well as creating awareness and putting an end to sex trafficking. Meant4More focuses on simple designs with empowering messages to help encourage people when they are in the midst of life’s struggles. “Our goal is to spread our message to a bigger audience and give back as much as we can to the charities we support as well as attend conferences to give talks about suicide and human trafficking,” states Primo Martinez.
