About this project

Hello humans! I'm a graphic designer from the beautiful city of Washington, DC. I am creating these pins to support the American Civil Liberties Union (www.ACLU.org) as a response to a racist, misogynistic, homophobic, Islamophobic, xenophobic demagogue winning the presidential election. 

Each design will be fabricated in America by a reputable pin maker. These will be high-quality enamel pins, 1" in diameter. 

Wear these pins as a symbol of awareness and show of solidarity! 

We must not accept hate and intolerance as values in the highest office of our country. We must support those doing important work in the movement against Trump's policies which put our civil liberties in grave danger. We must mobilize through the mid-term election of 2018 and onto the presidential election of 2020. Upon completion, all of the profits from this project will be donated to the ACLU. I intend to publish a cost sheet to outline the final costs and donation made. 

The cost breakdown below assumes the fabrication and shipping of 100 pins of each design (300 total), but the cost per unit should go down if there is greater demand for the pins. If this project is funded, I will donate my own money to the ACLU. Kickstarter informed me 3 weeks into the project that I may not donate this money, but I intend to match the check I write them with the money I receive from the project. 

If this project is a success, I plan to fabricate more pins to benefit smaller grassroots organizations that protect women's reproductive rights, immigrants' rights, and other marginalized groups. 

COSTS
Enamel pins: ~ $3-4/each // $900-$1,2000 plus shipping for 300 pins (price per pin will decrease if demand is higher than 300)
Shipping materials: ~ $300 
Shipping cost: ~$1-$4 for shipping across USA, depending on location 

Please note that Kickstarter adds a 5% fee, plus 20¢ per transaction fee. 

TIMELINE

  • Pins will be ordered by December 23rd, 2016. 
  • They should be delivered to me within 9-12 business days and shipped out the week of January 16th at the very latest.

For those who might like to give these as a holiday gift, I will create a holiday-themed image that can be printed out or emailed to your loved ones.

I will do everything in my power to ensure you have these pins by inauguration day!

Risks and challenges

The only reasonable challenge I foresee is a small possible delay in production. However, I have experience producing pins and worst-case scenario is that fabrication is delayed by a week or so in order to ensure the pins are produced flawlessly.

If somehow the demand for these pins far exceeds my expectations and the funding goal, then the shipping of some pins may be delayed, with supporters receiving them slightly later than anticipated. However, I intend to ship them out immediately upon receipt as fast as I am able.
