Thank You for Seeing Me is a brand with a positive message for people who share the road.
Thank You for Seeing Me is a message for all of us who share the road. Through a positive exchange of gratitude our goal is simple. TYFSM acknowledges you with a kind reward…a “Thank You” has the potential to go a lot further than a criticism or demand to be seen.
TYFSM was created in response to the increasing number of cyclists and pedestrians on the road. Being on a bike or on foot among one-ton cars can be a pretty vulnerable experience and we hope this message grows in our communities. We want to send a message of positivity to everyone on the road!
Your funds will pay for the initial production of our products and the plan is to hit the streets this fall. They will be available for sale online and our big dream (and when we say our we mean YOU) is to get them in all of our local bike shops. You will be part of the original crew to get this project going and it's a project we can all feel proud of.
Your funds will go towards printing the first run of t-shirts here in Los Angeles and stickers too. We have a really great company that is locally owned in Los Angeles and we can't wait to work with them. The T's are SUPER SOFT and we'll be using vibrant colors and organic inks.
Here is the main design for the brand.
We expect to spread this message all over the world...so head over to the right side of this page and make this project a reality for all of us! You will receive great rewards for your funding.

PS: the track in the video is an awesome remix "Hear Us Now (Poptastic Mix)" by Scott Altham
Director's Note: "We should have taken the prop master's advice and made our star wear a helmet in the video but the Wardrobe department won. We assure you no riders were harmed in this video and really want you to stay around for a long time so please, WEAR YOUR HELMET EVERY TIME, even in your Kickstarter fundraising video.***
First off, Thank You for your patience and continued support. We apologize for the intense delay! Our shirts were printed only to find out that there was a major manufacturing issue with this particular blend of heather grey Alternative Apparel shirts! It was so bad that they had to pull ALL of these particular shirts from shelves around the country! Wow. So, thanks to us, we've saved the organic clothing industry from a major disaster but have paid the price in time and anxious customers. We want to reassure you that you will be receiving your TYFSM apparel and we plan to let you know as soon as our screen printer gives us the green light. Hang in there and THANK YOU!
As soon as the project is funded look for an email from us requesting your information and any appropriate questions pertaining to your reward. ie: if you ordered a T-shirt, we'll be asking you what size you need and where to send it.
We are completely independent from any organization. It's just me, my computer, my bike and a whole lot of faith that this will take off.
The biggest help to our brand is to spread the word. Because TYFSM is an action-based message we need to keep the momentum going by letting everyone know about us! Have a friend or know someone who would appreciate our positivity? Tell them to contact us. You can also mention us to your local bike shop. Every little bit spreads positivity so "Do what you can with what you have where you are." - Teddy Roosevelt
Yes. We do, because, behind the message are like-minded people who look out for each other...and you. Research "Positive Psychology" and see what you can find.
