IndieGoGo orders on their way!
We are so happy to announce that we are prepping to package and ship all your orders within the next two weeks! That means that by April 15th, Merit will have arrived at your doorstep! Product shipments are reaching us at various times, so we can’t thank you enough for your ongoing patience and support – it means the world to us.
If you have any questions, we invite you to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org at any time.
In the meantime, check out the most recent recap video from our FATE workshop with Ben Ewy, Creative Director of New Era:

We pray all is well your way! Again, we can’t thank each and every one of you enough for the support and trust you showed in us during our Indiegogo campaign. Every penny, tweet, facebook post, and even word of encouragement will never be taken for granted on our end! Thank you!
We just wanted to check back in with a quick update to let you know where we’re at in the production process… We’re producing! :)
As noted in the previous emails that we sent personally to each contributor, we ended up consolidating the line and included a survey in our correspondence where you could select your final perk, size, and colorway choices (If you didn’t receive this communication, please let us know).
We took those final perk choices, put in our orders, and guess what?!! We’re pretty much on schedule to deliver all orders in March (we may have a few that ship at the very beginning of April). We’re so excited for you to look and feel remarkably good in these amazing designs. And then you’re going to want to tell all your friends and family!
All in all, we’re going to continue to keep you posted and will let you know the moment your order is shipped. Thank you so much for your continued patience and support!
Merit Tees Printed!
Hi Merit Family,
I pray that you’re having an awesome holiday season thus far and wanted to check back in for a quick update! I’ll be back at the beginning of next week with a FULL update, however, I didn’t want to wait until then to keep you in the loop.
As many of you know, we had an awesome Indiegogo campaign that received $12,000 in orders/contributions of the $30,000 we need to launch our debut collection (thank you so much for your support)! We set our goal at $30,000 because for all our products (especially our cut-n-sew collection) there are minimum order quantities we have to hit to place orders with our manufacturer. We did not hit several of those minimums but we’ve been working hard to make this happen anyway. Here’s a brief look into what we’re currently doing:
1. Meeting with the investment community seeking feedback/outside investment
2. Meeting with our suppliers/manufacturers seeking lower minimum order quantities
3. Finishing a temporary preorder website of our own to take additional preorders
4. Finishing our Indiegogo surveys seeking feedback on Merit’s cause & product
As mentioned above, next week we’ll be personally reaching out to you, seeking your feedback and thoughts on how we’re thinking of moving forward. Again, we’re nothing without our community and want to be 100% transparent during this process. But at the same time, we think this is a perfect opportunity for us to learn and grow by including your opinions, wants, and desires as we game plan on moving forward. PLEASE NOTE: Nothing will be done with the money you’ve provided until we are sure we can produce the collection. If it doesn’t happen, all your orders will be refunded in full.
Thank you so much again and look out for some personal communications from Merit next week. Have a blessed one.
So Thankful For You – Merit’s Next Steps
A HUGE thank you to every single person that contributed, spread the word, or simply looked at Merit’s Indiegogo Campaign. We can do nothing without our community. Here’s a look at the difference you made during the campaign.

Give yourself a big ol’ pat on the back! And this is only the beginning of the impact we’re going to have on youth throughout the country and world.
We’re going to be sending out another update (in the next few days) on where we stand after receiving $12k in contributions of the $30k we need to launch our debut collection! Please check this update. We’ll need your feedback and support on what’s sent out.
Lastly, you or even a friend or family member may have wanted to purchase more Merit product but missed the Indiegogo deadline. We’re figuring out how we can accept orders outside of the Indiegogo as we speak.
Please email us at email@example.com if you’re still interested in placing a Merit order and getting a piece of our debut launch collection. Thanks!
Like this status for a big ol’ pat on the back! We’ll be connecting soon with an update on exactly how we move forward.
we received $12k of the $30k we need to launch our debut collection! Our goal is to reach $30k by continuing to take pre-orders right here, u

Only 13 Hours Remain For Merit’s Indiegogo Campaign
Today is the last day to pick up our awesome perks and support @MeritGoodness on IndieGoGo! 20% of your purchase funds college scholarships for underserved youth. Let’s do this!
We need ooone last favor (in addition to the support you’re already giving – THANKS!). There’s this pretty cool company called Thunderclap. It’s a service that allows you to amplifly your cause, simply by having people promote ONE message/post, all at the same time. So you set a goal number of supporters, who link their FB or Twitter accounts in support of the message. If that goal is met by the deadline, the service sends that message out to all of the accounts at the same time.
Our thunderclap is set for tonight at 7 PM, 8 hours before our campaign concludes. We need 100 supporters by 7 PM to make this happen. All you have to do is link your FB and Twitter at https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/866-drop-th... to send out our message Takes about 30 seconds to do and no signup is necessary.
Thank you guys so much!!!
