Simple, I am Marty Grace and if you wake up everyday with faith to acheive a dream and encourage people along your path to not settle for no but to keep pushing in life, then you are Marty Grace. Listen, I'm just a normal guy who In July of 2007 decided to take a chance and quit my job after 22 years with 14 to go with the Postal Service. 2 months later I had a fire that destroyed all my equipment. Did I let that stop me? No, my faith and trust in God is what brought me to where I am today. 3 years later I'm putting out some of the Hottest designs on the streets today (soon to be the next big thing in fashion). So now It's time to do footwear. After years of doing samples the response has been overwhelming, but I only had enough money to do samples and hoped I would get a backer.
Why does my company need you?
For years I have been flipping my own money to build my clothing line and I did. So I thought that since the clothing line is so unique, why should the funding come traditionally by one sponsor? “There’s got to be another way.” I dreamed big and now here I am. I know this is possible God. Designs by Marty Grace has reached a massive amount of people, and if It had more funds, it would reach even more. I proposed to my staff that the funds for this line should come from people like you. It should come from the billions of people who wear clothing every single day. Most importantly, I believe that this is going to be an incredible story. Think about it… young man quits his job after 22 years because he believes in his dream. He targets celebrities to invest but they just take his gifts. He puts his stuff on kickstarter then the people step up and say; “we will fund this project, this is a story I want you to be a part of". So will you join me and many others? We are raising $ in time for production on Jan1st for Spring.
When exactly is “The Big Day?
When all funds have been distributed production will start for Spring of 2011 footwear line to appear on the streets in stores and a neighborhood near you.
Can I Gift An Incentive?
YES! Spectacular idea. If you would like to donate to the Line but give the reward to someone as a gift, go through all the normal process of making a donation in your name. For billing purposes, this action must be in your name. After our deadline, we will send a message to you on Kickstarter. (It will be forwarded to the email address you provided) We will request things like your t-shirt size and address from you at that time. Please reply with all the person’s information that is to receive the reward. We will make sure they are the person who receives the reward.
How will we get your number? How will we get your T-shirt size?
We have a team that will go through all the people who have pleded to request their info including phone numbers. If you have donated, you will get a message from Me or one of my staff.
Can I increase my pledge once it’s been made?
YES! Once you donate to our campaign, you may want to change your incentive reward to a different one, or increase your pledge amount. To do so, go to Kickstarter and sign in. If you go to our campaign page, the green “Back This Project” button has been replaced with a blue “Manage Your Donation” button. Click it and you can enter a new amount, or choose a new incentive.
What happens if the money isn’t raised in time? Unfortunately nothing. If our goal isn’t met before the deadline, no money changes hands and no kicks are made. We want to avoid this scenario at all cost!
Can we exceed the goal?
YES! Kickstarter will allow as much money as is given before the deadline. The possibilities are endless.
How do we contact you? Glad you asked! You can contact me directly at email@example.com and l will get back to you. We promise!
Is this project a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization?
Unfortunately not we are not set up as a non-profit. Donations are raw gifts. Non-tax deductible.
If I donate, when can I redeem the incentive?
All incentives, big and small, will only happen if our goal is met. If we do meet our goal, immediately after our deadline we will start to manufacture and ship all physical merch directly to you. It will be our priority to schedule the more personal incentives as soon as possible. You will hear from us more as we get closer to our deadline.
Who does the money go to?
Every penny (minus the fees for Kickstarter’s involvement and Amazon) will go directly to Designs by Marty Grace kicks budget - i.e. Your money goes directly to the funding of this project.
