Where did you get the original inspiration for this project?

As many non-profits struggle to acquire funding to run their programs, we wanted to develop a sustainable source of income for our youth environmental initiatives by creating a social enterprise clothing company. We have always had a passion for apparel and sustainable fashion, and after doing a bit of research, we dove right into it.

Why did you decide to crowdfund?

Crowdfunding is a great way to raise money AND build a community of support. We want Drizzle Apparel Co. to become not only a great social enterprise, but also a movement for environmental youth empowerment. Crowdfunding is allowing us to accomplish both goals.

What does ultimate success look like for you and your project?

Ultimate success for us is empowering a generation of youth to protect the planet and take into account the environment into every decision they make. Today’s youth will be tomorrow’s leaders, and we believe if they are empowered to protect our planet, they will consider the health of our environment in every decision they make as adults.

What are you enjoying most about StartSomeGood?

The StartSomeGood community is fantastic. The team has been extremely supportive and helpful, and those who follow along have been very supportive as well. I know that if we reach our goal, we will have the StartSomeGood community to thank.
