About

The Story

Our world needs more love. It's time we teach the world about love and adventure and there's no better way to do it than by sending out Bunny Up Bunnies to spread the word!

I know first hand how much fun it is to have a Bunny Up Bunny go on an adventure with you, meet new people and make ever lasting memories. People love Bunny Up Bunnies and many ask to take them on business trips, weekend adventures and family vacations. I have recently examined the positive impact Bunny Up Bunnies have had on both children and adults alike and people absolutely love them! 

It's time for Bunny Up Bunnies to share their love in every state and maybe even around the world!  

Bunny Up Bunnies need your help! They have much love and compassion to share with the world and they need your help to get there! Bunny Up Bunnies travel the world sharing their love and experiencing adventures with people while making memories to last a lifetime!

 What's Next?

I have designed the Bunny Up Bunnies and have connected with a manufacturer to mass produce the Bunnies in various colors. A project of this size and type needs a professional touch to create the right Bunny and a cute Bunny is a must. We wouldn't want an ugly bunny to be left behind just because they were beat with an ugly stick, now would we?!?!

The professional sourcing company I've partnered with has manufactured other less desirable animals, but Bunny Up Bunnies is by far the cutest of them all! They have an experienced team determined to produce high quality Bunnies with the softest touch and cutest smile and we are working on volume levels to keep production and shipping costs low.

We want the world to have the cutest Bunnies as soon as possible. Here’s our plan to achieve that:

·September/October: Make lots of new Kickstarter friends, execute manufacturing agreements and quality control standards.

·October: Place the initial production order. Procurement of raw materials and components. Establish delivery dates.

·November: Take delivery of the initil production run of Bunnies, name them and prepare them for their adventures. Provide safety brief to Bunnies and explain to them the do's and dont's of meeting new people and enjoying adventures away from home. 

·Mid-November: Begin sending Bunnies to their first chaperones for the first leg of their adventures. 

·January: Begin compiling the pictures and stories of the bunnies for a Bunny Up Bunny Coloring Book, detailing Bunny adventures into each of the 50 states.

·February: Design and complete the Bunny Up Adventure Book. Send the Bunny Up Bunny coloring book to production.

·March: Begin order fulfillment for the Bunny Up Adventure Book

Risks and challenges

No one wants to see a good idea run into trouble, especially when it involves the lives of many Bunnies. We have worked extremely hard to ready this product for Kickstarter and maximize the opportunities for success, but here's what I see as the risks:

MANUFACTURING: Creating the right Bunnies for this type of project is expensive and requires professionals in the industry to get the job done right. There is typically a 45 day lead time to create the Bunnies and ship them to our door. A shorter production time is possible if we provide 50% of the production costs up front. We are working hard to get this wrapped up quickly so we can have the Bunnies here before the holiday season. If we can have the Bunnies here before the holiday season, they will be able to set out on their adventures with individuals and families traveling away from home for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.

PRODUCTION: The Bunny Up Bunnies have been designed and a short run has been produced to verify quality control standards such as softness, color and durability. The short run production consists of blue, pink and white bunnies. Each Bunny has "Bunny Up" embroidered on the left foot and the bunnies are extremely soft and lovable. The manufacturer is ready for full production and is waiting for our deposit for the production run. The Bunnies are AWESOME!

FULFILLMENT: Sometimes things happen that can’t be planned for: manufacturing equipment breaks down, a natural disaster develops near the production facility or a shipment gets delayed by weather, customs, etc. Those things could cause a delay. To minimize the possibility of production delays, we have established relationships with two back-up suppliers for the Bunnies.

We are working with manufacturers who have years of experience delivering quality products all around the world. There will no doubt be some surprises and issues along the way, but every issue will be addressed quickly by combining our vision, desires and knowledge with the expertise of those who have joined our team to bring our Bunny Up Bunnies to life. We are on track to provide you and the world with the cutest and most lovable bunnies ever.

Of course, one of the biggest challenges we will face is keeping the Bunnies going on their adventure. To minimize the odds of a Bunny being placed in a kids closet to age without adventures, we will attached a laminated memo to each Bunny stressing the importance for everyone involved to help our Bunnies continue their adventures without experiencing unnecessary delays. We will also include our contact information so those involved may contact us regarding questions and/or concerns for the Bunnies.

Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Help us make the world a better place and bring our Bunny Up Bunnies to life by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of the page, or by helping us spread the word by sharing our page.

In your honor, we will be putting together an online collage of our backers and the world will know you are the ones that are sharing the love! We THANK YOU for your help!
