ABOUT K-HERO CLOTHING COMPANY
K-HERO Clothing Company was inspired by Karen Magnussen who fought stage 4 cancer for 4 years. She was amazing and her fight inspired her son Brent to fight cancer the same way she did. Fearless, with a smile, positive, and never quitting.... in 2009 Karen Magnussen lost her fight with cancer.
Inspired and determined, Brent Magnussen decided to make it his life mission to fight cancer and honor his mother. With his love of t-shirts since he was a kid and a passion to be an entrepreneur, Brent has made good on his word to his mom. In 2009 Brent left a good job, borrowed 5 grand, started K-HERO Clothing Company and never looked back. K-HERO gives thousands of dollars to cancer research each year, and works with helping kids with cancer and their families.
Perks For Contributing
The clothes we wear say things about us:
What band we listen to, our favorite team, a message we stand behind, and what we are passionate about. Especially t-shirts! THE K-HERO PROJECT is a chance to be part of something powerful and truly make a difference.
The Cancer Fighters, Athletes, Musicians and members of the K-HERO ARMY are reflections of this attitude, and are proud to wear apparel that is built for everyone involved in the fight against cancer.
-How will we use the funds?
Update our ecom system and build an amazing interactive website.
With the funds raised we will increase our inventory by 5,000 shirts! Many of these shirts will be new designs for men, women, and kids. These designs will be done by young designers who just finished school or have not had a chance to shine in the industry. K-HERO will give them that chance, and they will be paid good money for there work. K-HERO will offer 15 new designs on t-shirts, hoodies, socks, hats, and other designs by May 2013.
We will purchase professional equipment to print our own shirts. We want to give you the best product and with us controlling every step in the t-shirt printing process we know you will be getting the highest quality apparel possible. This will save us money that can be used to hire more awesome people that need a great job! And most important, we will fund the right people doing the most advanced work in cancer research.
Later this year we plan to open a retail store in Chicago. This will create new jobs for some awesome people! We also have plans to open a second retail location in Las Vegas in 2014.
"The more t-shirts we sell, the more money i can give to the right people doing the most important research to cure cancer. Wear a statement, and make a difference. Thank you for joining the fight against cancer!" -Brent Magnussen
