I hate to bring this up again, but….. when I was at the Dragon’s Den Auditions……

First thing I want to do is congratulate my friend, Owner/Creative Director of PumpEase™ Hands Free Pumping Supports, Wendy Armbruster Bell. She got the call yesterday to confirm that she had been selected as one of the businesses that would get a chance to make their pitch to the Dragon’s on the Dragon’s Den CBC. Awesome. I knew she would get chosen.

I met a fellow by the name of Jamie Marriott, at the Den Auditions, and he was telling me about his idea for his business. I really got excited about the whole thing because it deals with a few of my favourite things; art, clothes, team effort and charity.

His business, put simply, involves artists submitting their T-shirt Art Work, then visitors/customers vote on their favourite design submissions. The top 5 men’s and top 5 women’s styles then get made into limited edition runs on beautifully fitted Bamboo T’s, which are available for purchase. The artist/designer will receive a percentage of the sale and the purchaser will be able to choose a charity of choice for another percentage of the sale to be donated to.

Very cool concept because everyone gets to be involved on some level.

Here is a picture of Jamie at the Dragon’s Den Audition. S2S Nation… Something to Say…. express yourself…

The S2S Nation site launched just a couple of days ago, and is just in the early phases of gathering the art submissions. So this is your chance to get “whatever it is you’d like to say” out on a really nice Bamboo T-shirt. You can download the T-Templates on the site. Here’s what they look like.

I touched these T-shirts when I was chatting with Jamie, and they are a really soft, very high quality Bamboo, with nice fit. They are really sleek fitting T’s. Good luck Jamie, all the best with this, I’ll be keeping my eyes on your site, so I can vote, when the submissions are all in! And, I have many very talented artist friends who I think will be interested in submitting.
