About this project

Hello there! Thanks for checking out my project, Chingu.

If you saw  the video, you know now that Chingu means friend.( As a bonus, you are now officially multilingual in Korean. So you’re welcome!) As it goes without saying, family is important. But at times, we need more than family. We need FRIENDS! or as we can now say, CHINGU! Like family, the best of friends stick it through the thick and thin.  That is why this Kickstarter project, Chingu,  celebrates all friendships found throughout the world. 

But sometimes if you look at your friends, you may wonder to yourself,"How the heck did we become friends?" The answer? Poop.

No one is perfect. Although we want to be that white frosting on the cake, sometimes we end up feeling like poop. But the people who accept and even love your "poop" are the ones who will forever be your friends.

Furthermore, in some countries, poop is an auspicious symbol representing good fortune. FYI, if you ever dream of poop, it must be your lucky day!  So just by wearing Chingu shirts, good things are just bound to happen to you!

That is why Pew, our lovable mascot, needs your support to find his own Chingu!  How can you help Pew? Kickstarter!

This is where we need your support. The funding from this project  will go into printing the designs that we already have lined up. Pew and Co are just waiting to get out there and be worn by his new Chingu, you!  If we go beyond our funding, I will be able to include mystery gifts as well as upgrade prizes! So keep an eye out for those!

If you need help on pledging, click on this helpful link: “How to Pledge

The larger your pledge, the more goods you receive at a better bargain! It’s one PEW-tiful deal! So ask your own friends to pitch in so that everyone can have their own Chingu shirt! 

All Chingu designs are available in your choice of male or female cuts. Shirts are slightly fitted (American Apparel). Tanks tops are a bit loose. (Also, onesies will be available on request for all our baby friends)

About Our Shirts

The designs will be printed on 100% combed ringspun cotton shirts , which allows for superior quality and supreme softness. Our shirts are also slightly fitted, which allows for a more modern shape and feel. Pew got your back!


"I'm broke, Pew, can i still be your Chingu?"


 If you have any questions, feel free leave your comments on our Kickstarter page (or email us), and we will answer your questions right away.

Pew and I thank you for your time!
