Post-Crowdfunding campaign update and Welcome 2021!

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...

Crowdfunding Campaign Pre-Orders - Nov 6-30, 2020 - FUNDED!

THE CAMPAIGN IS NOW CLOSED - We hit the target and production finished on schedule at the facility in Cambodia on July 10th, 2021.  The stock boarded the container ship at Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam on July 15th and has arrived on the west coast of Canada to go through customs.  Next step they travelled by train to Toronto and finally arrived at the warehouse September 26.  I am now preparing all the packages for shipment to pre-orders and reservations!

IFundWomen Crowdfunding Update - Nov 30 - 28,748USD - Good to GO!

Well, talk about going above and beyond!  We actually got to 51% of the original target - which is crazy impressive to accomplish in such a short period of time.  As much as I prepared for this campaign and had SO MUCH help and support from everyone, there was a very big learning curve.  I feel like we skipped over leaps and bounds and just went straight to flying, which is more my style anyway.... I have a few personal emails still to send out to the last minute orders, but this is a reminder that if you pre-ordered a wetsuit - please send...

Hi! How have you been? Me? I got knocked down, but I got up again

Hi! How have you been?  Me?  I got knocked down, but I got up again

Hi!  How have you been? It's kinda a weird question for 2020, isn't it?  How do you even answer?  Okay, what if I change the question just a little and say, Hey my friend, how has your day been today so far?  Over here in Tobermory, Ontario the sun is shining, the air is cool and crisp and the brief tourist season we had is winding down.  It feels like an end of something and the start of something else - Seasons are like that, aren't they? Maybe you've noticed that I haven't been in touch like I said I would? ...

Crowdfunding Campaign - SOON!

Crowdfunding Campaign - SOON!

My goal is to create access to water sports for every woman by ensuring she has a good quality wetsuit that fits.  In so many cases a wetsuit will be the deciding factor on whether a woman will be able to participate or not and I am on a very focused mission to ensure women never have to sit on the sidelines due to lack of availability of gear. It's been 5 years since I first launched Truli Wetsuits and to say I've learned a lot, well, it's an understatement!  At this time, I have 4 styles that women love...
