About

I'm starting a brand for kids to embrace their "damages"

I wanted to start something that promotes channeling your fear, anxiety and depression and making a statement. 

With "Damaged Kids" I plan on connecting with kids across the country as I have over the years being in a touring band but with this project we'll be able to relate on a different level under a brand that represents equality and compassion for the outcasts.

I have been lucky enough to design and own some incredible band merch over the years from touring and going to shows. I wanted these shirts to replicate that feeling of wearing your favorite bands t-shirt; most of the designs are very merch influenced. 

With your donations I'll be able to have these 4 initial designs printed and shipped as well help with pins,stickers and flyers/publishing.

A portion of the profit will be donated to psychiatric treatment centers as well as rehabilition organizations working with kids from troubled childhoods or broken homes. I am also currently looking into organizations who offer psychiatric help to those who may not be able to afford it.

All the shirts will be printed on Gildan in a full size run from S-2XL 

 DK Patch Shirt- Available in Black 

Damaged Kids Logo Tee -Available in Black,Burgundy and Navy Blue

 Tattoo Flash Tee - Available in Black and White

 We're All Damaged Tee- Available in Black 

Thanks for your interest!

Risks and challenges

The only challenge that I can imagine is not being able to shine through the endless amount of independent clothing brands that already exist. I plan on overcoming this obstacle with my knowledge of marketing and the sole fact that this project is to be used as a tool to build bridges with others while turning a "stigma" into a hobby. I want the person wearing THIS brand to feel comfort in the idea that they are supporting an act of confidence and unity and not feel isolated or cheated into consuming for the sake of consumption.
