Kick Starter mental and suicidal awareness shirt

Hi everyone. As you know I’m a man of many talents and hobbies. I’m one of the hardest working people I know. I’m addicted to working. It’s the only way to keep my brain from going down a path that even I don’t know what’s at the end. As most of you know Geri and myself are starting a mental health/suicidal awareness shirt. This has been a very hard year for me up there in my brain. I feel like no matter how hard I try the world is there to hold me back. The last two months have been the worst with having my older cousin just take her life after only three weeks before we lost her mother. My truck has drained my account with multiple break downs in the last two months. This time it was the transmission. Well long story short is we feel that now is the time for us to get this shirt out for people. The shirts are designed. We have a full write up for the meaning of the shirts. We have digital advertising photos on models already but.... I’m next to broke and our trademark fees and lawyer fee for Canada and USA Trademark is going to run us $5000 for Canada and $10,000 if we decide for a USA trademark as well. I just can’t do this on my own and keep food on my table. So I’m here asking for help. Anything helps get this started. Even as little as a dollar. It would mean the world to us to be able to get our shirt out there. But without a trademark I know with my luck someone would steal our idea away from us and we would be left with nothing. I honestly don’t think my brain could live through that if it ever happened. Thanks for you time. I understand we are all going through hard times personally and financially. I know this isn’t going to happen over night and I hate to even ask but I have no other options right now. This will be the first time we really show this online I’m begging this doesn’t back fire on us. Shirt meaning Hiding In Plain Sight This shirt design is in honour of everyone struggling with mental health issues as well as suicide. The snowflake represents that everyone is different while the semicolon represents the common problem among us.
