Our company CM Skullies is an apparel line specializing in our patent pending design that allows you to wear any eyewear with our beanies and headbands. Nick was hit by an 80mm mortar in 2005 when he was deployed. He suffers from PTSD, leg paralysis, a perforated ear drum and battles depression. We started this business as a means to being able to ride his motorcycle safely again. Wind in his ear causes him to lose equilibrium which effects his balance while riding. Being on a motorcycle has helped Nick crawl out of his deep depression state when he first came back. We chose to make a line in order to donate back to a cause that hits close to home and wants to help as much as we do. 22kill offers programs to help veterans battling depression, and families that have lost someone to suicide through three programs. A couple years ago they launched their own challenge: 22pushup to bring awareness to veteran suicide and the amount of veterans that take their own lives each day, on average 22. Being a small population in comparison to the nation this is a staggering number. We wanted to do something of our own to help bring more awareness to the veteran suicide epidemic in our country. Nick is going to be riding his motorcycle through 22 states in 22 days. On his trip he will stop in Dallas,TX to meet with 22Kill and present our donation to them. We will have a running blog where Nick will check in to each collection stop and it will also list the stops he will be making. Our goal is to collect $22,000 for 22Kill during this journey, while bringing awareness to helping veterans. Nick will not be staying in hotels because he wants to put a strong emphasis on the struggle our nation’s combat veterans go through. We want to let them know they are not alone and we are fighting for them too! Here is a link to a local newspaper's article on Nick, and our story as a business.
