Mama Power Tees was founded to connect mamas and celebrate mommyhood.

After giving birth to my daughter, I noticed that while pregnant women are revered by our society, mamas are not.  Mamas are pushed aside and labeled as unattractive, unimportant, and some find themselves feeling isolated and under-appreciated.  To the contrary, I believe that mamas are amazing, powerful, incredibly interesting, and worthy of celebration!

As a new mom, I found myself deeply in love with my new little one, but also befuddled, sleep deprived, and at times feeling very alone.  I was learning to care for baby while also discovering a new me- a mommy me.  While so vulnerable, I also felt the social pressure to "get it together," do it all perfectly, and to be the woman I've always been.  The support of my fellow mamas gave credence to the feelings and experiences that this new way of being brought to bear, and despite our many differences, there was a commonality among us: love for our children, the desire to provide our very best for them and ourselves, and hope for their future.

Motherhood, indeed, can be repetitive, vulnerable, and filled with mundane routines, such as bedtime, play, and mealtime.   It's also, however, an exercise in constant intellectual engagement, an unending search for balance, and a daily act of courage.  Each day moms of all stripes engage in the vulnerable task of providing guidance and love while sometimes being completely uncertain of the "right" answers.  At times we are triumphant and other times we fall to our knees, but every time we forge ahead.

My hope is that Mama Power Tees captures mommyhood in a celebratory light that also allows mamas to identify and connect with one another.  The shirts are fun, feminine, comfy and can be paired with any variety of yoga pants!

I currently have five designs and prototype t-shirts.  To get the line off of the ground I need to raise $2,300.  This will allow me to make the first mass print of t-shirts as well as add an additional design.  I have 30 days to meet this goal.  That's right, just 30 days! If I meet or exceed the $2,300 goal the project will go full speed ahead.   If I don't I get, nothing and the project will remain in the prototype stage.

This is why your help is key!  Each day mamas are helping to raise future citizens of the world and they are worthy of celebration.  If you agree, become a Mama Power Tees backer, contribute today and spread the word.

Thank you for your interest and support!

Risks and challenges

Mama Power Tees are currently in the prototype stage, so the biggest potential challenge would be if we get a significantly larger response than our initial goal (i.e. 3-4 times). I have to say, this would be a wonderful challenge to tackle and I have confidence it will be fine. I have a reliable vendor and estimates in hand, though if the order is significantly larger than anticipated, I will likely need to allow more time for order fulfillment. I will certainly be communicative about any changes in projected timelines if they arise.

Thank you so much for your interest in the project!
