I am looking for help funding a print run of this poignant bumper sticker.
There's a popular bumper sticker circulating which implies that kids need both of their parents in order to thrive. While this is true, it's also true that both parents need to be HAPPY in order to provide their child(ren) with the highest possible level of care and compassion.
This bumper sticker acknowledges that the best situation for a child lies in parental happiness, whether they are living together or apart.
I am the single father of a wonderful seven year old girl. Her mom and I have discovered that our paths to happiness lie in different directions. We are both actively involved in our daughter's life, but when we were together it was obvious we weren't happy or at our best. So splitting up was the best thing we could do for her. The old adage of 'keeping together for the child's sake' didn't hold true for us. Yet the split wasn't failure. It's entirely possible to successfully co-parent without living together and feeling you're being held back by a relationship that isn't working out. Hence this bumper sticker. I believe the best thing parents can do for their child(ren) is to discover their own happiness and share it, whatever it takes.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
This is a fairly low-risk venture. The graphic design is complete; all that's required is uploading a file to a print company and ordering a hundred (or more) copies; then, upon delivery, stuffing them in envelopes and mailing them. The main risk would be for print costs to have increased since I last had stickers produced.
The challenge will be to put the order together and mail the stickers in a reasonable time period. Depending on how many folk order stickers, I may have a lot of envelopes to address. The cost of said envelopes and stamps has been factored into the funding request.
