Daily frustrations/excitements of a diabetic, student, and entrepreneur 

Pumpstash is launching a Kickstarter campaign!

I am so, so excited to announce that Pumpstash is currently two weeks away from launching a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign!

I have been working diligently on Pumpstash over the last year. After months of surveying, researching, prototyping, and designing we are FINALLY ready to launch. I am so excited to put forward our first two lines of Pumpstash shorts, in both women’s and girls’ sizes. (Men and boys sizes coming soon!)

Thanks to the 2014 AWEARNESS Grant from Kenneth Cole, I was able to work with Manufacture NY to create sketches, samples, and ultimately, a high quality final product.

We are all ready to launch, we just need money for manufacturing. That’s where the Kickstarter comes in. From May 18th-June 18th Pumpstash will be running a crowdfunding campaign to raise the $5,000 needed for production. The way Kickstarter works is members of the community can donate to the campaign, in exchange for contribution prizes. If we are able to raise $5,000 (or more), Pumpstash can use that money for the first run of shorts and have an official launch  with shorts ready to ship in September 2015.  However, if we don’t raise $5,000, all of the money is returned to those that donated and we’re left with nothing. Kickstarter is an opportunity to grow our community, as well as allow our loyal customers pre-order their shorts and to be part of our production process.

Please donate/like/share/tweet/carrier pigeon our campaign to help us reach our goal. The more people that know about Pumpstash the better. If you’re interested in sharing a link to the Kickstarter campaign on your Facebook or Twitter on our launch date, please sign up here:

By allowing Thunderclap access, it will post only once on May 18th, and give your networks an opportunity to see and hear about Pumpstash.

Thank you so much and keep an eye out for more updates!
