IFundWomen Crowdfunding Update - May 7 - Truli Production Schedule Update

Posted by Mia Toose on

Spring has arrived!  Up here in Canada, daffodils are blooming, green buds on trees are emerging, and birds are chitter-chattering excitedly.  I’ve dived into the Great Lakes for a couple of frigid dives and my paddle adventures have been without ice and snow - Yay!  Since the last update in early January, I've connected with each of the 97 pre-order customers, collected sizing information, assigned sizes, and arranged to ship out wetsuits from current inventory if it was available.  So far 19 pre-orders from current inventory have been shipped and received (with 16 more to go!).  There are approximately 15 people who have...

Posted by Mia Toose on

Lots has happened since the close of the campaign on November 30, 2020 and I wanted to give you all an update on what’s been going on and what to expect in the coming months. The Campaign As you may recall, the original "ask" was 56K, which would have let me order all 4 Truli designs in every size while meeting the manufacturer's minimum order quantity.  However, 2 weeks into the campaign, it was clear I wasn't going to hit the target, so I connected with the manufacturer to figure out what options I had.  They allowed me to reduce...
