KNOTS AND ARROWS: Bracelets Making A Big Difference

$39,208

On September 8, 2014, Becca was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Dad, (that's me) is also a young adult cancer survivor. For those of you who know Becca, you know how brave and beautiful her soul is. From day one of her Leukemia Diagnosis, down to her very last few days of treatment (November 13, 2016), Becca has been on a mission. Her mission has always been to promote awareness and raise funds for Childhood Cancer Research. Becca is currently in remission and is determined to make a difference. Childhood Cancer is a cause that will forever be near and dear to our hearts. 

One thing we quickly learned on Becca's cancer journey is that fundraising for a cause is HARD! Anyone who has ever run a fundraiser knows just how exhausing, frustrating and emotionally draining it can be. Over the last two years we have poured a lot of time and effort into raising funds for research, sometimes yielding very little reward. Any time Becca would try to raise funds for Childhood Cancer Research, she would end up disappointed. Her tender little heart just couldn't understand why money wasn't pouring in for her cause. As her Dad, I would often remind her that every dollar raised would make a difference.

Becca has always been a go big or go home kind of girl. With that said, she came up with the idea to start a company that gives back. The customer would "get" and the company would do the "giving". Becca's idea coupled with a lot of hard work and determination, turned into a company called Knots and Arrows. Becca's mom came up with the company name and the idea of selling bracelets. Becca and I have accomplished the rest and will be running Knots and Arrows together.

 

 

During Becca's fight with cancer, two inspirational quotes encouraged our family along the way. Somehow these two mantras collided and the company name, Knots and Arrows was born.

 

Even the material chosen to make the bracelets has a special meaning. Each of K&A's unique bracelets are made from swimsuit material as a reminder to "just keep swimming". Thank you, Dory for the inspiration. 

Knots and Arrows has been in the works for close to a year now. All designs and samples are approved and ready for production. 

We need your support to bring our project to life. All funds raised on this campaign will cover the cost of production, packaging, shipping, promotional materials and the launch of our website. Any amount raised over our initial goal will help Knots and Arrows to continue to grow. After Knots and Arrows has officially launched a website, a portion of all sales will go to our favorite Childhood Cancer Foundation, Tackle Kids Cancer. An additional portion of all sales will also go to help struggling families touched by childhood cancer, who are in need.

Want to follow our Knots and Arrows Journey? Love our bracelets and our mission? Great! Please don't be shy about sharing Knots and Arrows with your friends. The more people who know about Knots and Arrows, the larger our community will become! We are counting on the kindness of friends, family and complete strangers to help us spread the word. We can't do this without you! Help us out by sharing Knots and Arrows with your friends, by using the hashtag #knotsandarrows

Risks and challenges

We have spent the last 12 months relentlessly working on streamlining the design and manufacturing of Knots and Arrows bracelets.

Although this our first KickStarter campaign, we are confident we will be able to complete our project and deliver on time. Possible setbacks include suppliers, manufacturing, shipping, natural disasters, and acts of God. In manufacturing, there is always a risk that suppliers do not fulfill orders on time. Thankfully, we have secured a manufacturer (proudly made in the USA) that is very professional, organized and amazing to work with!

If there is an overwhelming response to our campaign, kindly note that this may slow down our estimated production times and anticipated ship dates.

We will update you every step of the way on our progress. In the event there are any blips along the way, we promise we will let you know!
