FOUNDING FORGING SOUL 

Forging Soul is inspired by my brother – who survived cancer, lived with serious medical issues, and who was tragically shot and killed by police in March 2016. His struggles in life, and those he leaves behind in his untimely death, are an all too real reminder of the obstacles keeping us from finding our biblical version of happiness.  

Despite these obstacles, he lived life with a faithful and fearless attitude.  That's what I admired most about him. That’s the spirit of Forging Soul.

OUR PURPOSE & MESSAGE

Scripture tells us to view obstacles as a source of strength.  What I came to realize through my brother's passing is that there is nothing more powerful than scripture to get us through this rollercoaster ride called life.

Scripture taught me two concepts that serve as the core of our message: (i) all we can do in life is to keep moving forward (forge ahead); and (ii) that life's obstacles are shaping (forging) us into the strongest version of ourselves. And so I set out to found a company to pass along this message to others who had experienced life's obstacles.

That is why Forging Soul's mission is to insert the power of scripture into everyday life through our caps – inspiring us all to approach life with a faithful and fearless attitude. Our caps empower you to forge on, because it isn't about how many times you get knocked down, but that each time you get back up and keep moving forward.

OUR CAUSE

My brother would want good to come from his story - and so we'd like to give back to a cause that matters on his behalf.     

That is why we donate 10% of your purchase to support charities that promote mental health in adolescents. Our goal is to help eradicate the stigma surrounding mental health in our youth through proactive support and awareness that will carry forward into future generations.  

Whether you've been affected by mental health directly (yourself) or indirectly (someone you care about), your purchase will help make a difference.

OUR PRODUCT

We design and manufacture premium quality, scripture-inspired caps for men and women. Cap concept - the silhouette on the outside captures the essence of the verse on the inside, so they’re designed to offer you the comfort of scripture no matter where you go.

Below is an example of our flagship scripture-themed cap - Proverbs 28:1 - Bold as a Lion.  Silhouette on the outside - scripture on the inside. 

Proverbs 28:1 - "The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion".
Proverbs 28:1 - "The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion".

This Kickstarter campaign will provide funds necessary to manufacture inventory for our first three caps (Bold as a Lion - Prov 28:1; Anchor for my Soul - Heb 6:19; and Wings like Eagles - Isa 40:31).

Following initial launch, we plan to manufacture and release the rest of our scripture-themed cap collection in 2018. Below is a representative illustration of our anticipated selection of verses and styles.  

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT 

We hope to make an impact by empowering us all while supporting a good cause.  Thank you for believing in and supporting our company.  

We hope to see you in a Forging Soul cap soon!

 

Risks and challenges

Funds will be used to manufacture the inventory needed to launch the company - with proceeds going towards manufacturing and warehouse costs. This will position us to create the broader line of caps that will be available on our website (www.forgingsoulco.com).

We have world-class manufacturing and distribution in place, ready to produce and ship your caps as soon as the Kickstarter campaign is completed. Hats should come off the production line and ship < 30 days following campaign end, so expected ship date is February 2018.

Our team will be monitoring the entire process from start to finish, and we'll let you know immediately should we run into any delays.

Following shipment, in the rare case that your cap is defective up receipt, please email us at customer_support@forgingsoulco.com and we'll gladly send you a replacement!
