The idea for this shirt and Vancouver event was inspired by the Roaring Silence demos being held annually around the globe. 100% of proceeds from the sale of this shirt once printed, will help cover the costs associated with organizing this event.
The Roaring Silence demonstration is to bring awareness and heighten compassion for the animals who are killed, exploited, confined and tortured in the food and fur industries, for research, for entertainment, fashion, and as decoration.
We will march in a silent line holding pictures of exploited and suffering animals. Our somber silence will draw attention to the seriousness of these crimes against animals.
Vancouver has never had a silent demonstration of this nature and I wanted to bring it to life, so I decided to give it my best and put out a call for help. I was answered with the kindness of volunteer artists, a graphic and web designer and fellow activists, to help with everything from pamphleteering and putting up posters, to video and web design.
It is our hope that several hundred compassionate people will join us in Vancouver and that our collective hearts be heard. Our goal is share truths surrounding these industries and to awaken others to the idea that kindness and empathy towards other earthlings no matter what species, are values that transcend our everyday lives.
We need support to make this silent demonstration of compassion, epic and unforgettable success. Every pledge will help us reach our goal.
Every pledge goes towards printing signs, brochures, t-shirts and website hosting. Here is the breakdown of our costs.
Totals for t-shirts may change as demand increases - any extra money generated from shirt sales in addition to the remainder of our Kickstarter fund-goal, will all be donated to local animal sanctuaries for a very needed boost!
• T-shirt and printing aprox - (current) $2150
• Pamphlets, Posters, and signs printing $2320
• Website Hosting and website template: $306
• Advertising $140

Risks and challenges
The risk for us was trying to set a relative goal for the campaign for the start-up costs with a July 8 deadline looming.
Rather than taking a chance on a higher campaign goal and risking not getting funded at all, we decided with such a short deadline we had to create a small inventory by covering the initial costs ourselves for the first run of shirts, the website, brochures, video, and posters to promote the event.
Despite the risks, our small organizing team has put together a beautiful campaign in the effort to raise awareness and support for this important causeLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
