Who Made Your Pants? has raised 20 percent of the money needed to purchase a new machinery and training materials, during the launch of a new crowdfunding campaign.
The social business develops skills by developing new products and needs a new machine to teach a new skill.
Who Made Your Pants? managing director Becky John said: “This new machine will be used in our third design, developed specifically to teach versatility, precision and attention to detail – core employability skills. We’re just doing it, as we do with everything, through the power of pants. Every single pledge helps us support our amazing team.”
Who Made Your Pants? is using the Buzzbnk crowdfunding platform to raise £6000, something the company claims can be done by just 105 people.
The campaign is live now at buzzbnk.org/wmyp and will remain so for 41 days. Pledges start from £0 (to be a cheerleader) or £15, for which the contributor will receive a thank you card and discount code.
There are also various intermediate levels all the way up to £300, for which the contributor receives hand delivery of pants to London, tea at the Royal Society for the Arts, a limited edition shirt, new pants, current pants and a thank you card.
