Contribute To Hold Please! PockeTeez’s Kickstarter
Help fund a great idea and help out a worthy (and locally-based) cause
Parents, here’s a chance for you to reclaim your pockets and purses from your little one’s precious treasures, and to help other kids who currently don’t have a home to hold onto to their beloved treasures as well.
So how can you take back your pockets? Hatch Things, a self-funded product design company in Brooklyn that creates fun, functional products for families while on-the-go, has created a shirt called Hold Please! PockeTeez. PockeTeez is a new shirt line for boys and girls with a zippered pocket located on the front of the shirt to hold your kids’ possessions. Essentially, it’s part shirt, part fanny pack. That means that when your children find cool looking rocks on the playground, they no longer have to ask you: “Please hold this!” They now have their own pockets to store their new-found treasures and you can reclaim yours!
But first, Hatch Things needs your help. Hatch Things has started a $10,000 Kickstarter campaign to obtain funds to add water resistant features to the shirt’s pockets, to begin factory production, and to donate shirts to children in CAMBA family homeless shelters where Sonjie Feliciano Solomon, founder of Hatch Things, and her family have been volunteering for years. CAMBA is a not-for-profit agency located in Brooklyn whose mission is to provide services that connect people with opportunities to enhance their quality of life.
To support the Kickstarter campaign, parents can order a shirt for their own children or order a shirt as a gift for a child in one of CAMBA’s three family shelters located in Brooklyn, NY and Queens, NY. The shirts cost $20-$25 (retailing in the future for $28-$32) depending on sleeve length. With your support, Hatch Things can help about 300 little ones keep their most cherished treasures safe, secure, and snug in their very own PockeTeez shirts.
The Kickstarter campaign ends on Friday, November 18, 2016. For more information on the Kickstarter campaign, please click HERE, and for more information on Hatch Things, please visit hatchthings.com.
