Do It

Create: Help me make Matter's new set of social goods, locally produced in New Orleans!

I'm excited to introduce to you three new products that share a common trait, folding to transform. All of my company, Matter's products benefit a correlating partner and are sustainably produced in the U.S.

Matter's new trio includes: 1. A Warm Hug, a blanket made by knitting machine co-op that forms a heart on your chest once wrapped around you donating to disaster relief. 2. Rabbits for Reading, a napkin that folds into a rabbit & raises donations for First Book & tutoring group S.T.A.I.R. 3. Last but not least is our Trusty Confidant, a simple notebook to fill with your ideas and sketches. Our notebook is 5 x 7, has a letterpress cover, and is made of 100% recycled French's paper.

See all of the details here by checking out our indiegogo campaign, back us if you can, & also please help me get the word out.

    Woot! In the final countdown of our campaign with 10 days left! I've added some new 'perks' in the spirit of dreams being created:
    1. 'Pick my brain' meetup - if in New Orleans, meet for coffee or beer & ask me questions about B-Corps, L3C's, social entrepreneurship, accelerator programs in the city, how to start your project, what groups you need to talk to, etc.! If not in NOLA, can google hangout or Skype!
    2. Help you with your project - this is for 3 working sessions on your idea. Either in New Orleans or Skype/Google hangout to get your project moving, let's do!

    Thank you friends!
