About

Purpose

The creation of this t-shirt is to raise awareness of Eczema as well as providing additional funding to Eczema research in light of advancing research efforts. A more natural and permanent cure for the disease is very much in need. 

A very large population suffers from Eczema, from babies to adults. It affects not only the patient itself, but rather people around them as well. Parents of babies with baby eczema often deal with frustration and hopelessness, affecting their lives greatly. There are many causes of eczema and, more often than not, the cause on an eczema patient is unidentifiable. 

Our family has been dealing with eczema in both adults and our baby. The lack of non-invasive treatment for flare-ups causes a lot of grief. On one hand we know the treatment is necessary, but on the other hand, the prolong period of applying creams such as hydrocortisone and corticosteroids is known for certain side effects. Eczema limits us in terms of where we can go and what we can eat. Speaking to other parents dealing with the same situation, we know we are not alone and there are many who go through the same issues and troubles our family deals with every day. 

By running this campaign, we hope we can raise awareness to the disease as well as raise funds to be donated to the Eczema Society of Canada, in which 100% of the donation goes towards eczema research. We spent the past few months designing the shirt, as well as reviewing fabric and manufacturing selection. We are all set to start our production with your help.

Please aid us in this wonderful cause and hopefully in the near future, put an end to this disease. 

About the Design

The front of the t-shirt features a baby Atlantic Puffin, a species that can often been found along the Atlantic coast of Canada, held by a pair of warm touching hands, the red flower on the head symbolizes the flare up eczema patients gets. The baby puffin is comfortable and relax with the care she is receiving. The words around the image draws a water droplet, and the words lists common symptoms, causes, and treatments of eczema. In the middle of it all is the phrase "In support of Eczema Society of Canada. Proceeds go directly to fund Eczema Research." to capture the reason for this t-shirt.

Risks and challenges

While we are already ready for our t-shirt production, there would be some risk in our project.

1) Delay in production - even though we have a manufacturer selected and in constant communication, we do not have exclusive rights to their production lines. In the event of high demand, the time it takes to produce these shirts could take longer than expected. We will keep everyone updated along the way in our production process

2) Delay in shipment - similar to the delay in production, shipment could be delayed due to, but not limited to, weather, customs, and logistics issues. The delay of shipment arriving at our warehouse in Toronto will cause delays in our ability to mail out the shirts to each backer. Again, we will be very transparent in our process.
