Martine Zoer created Quirkie Kids because she believes the color pink should not be off limit to boys.
I am the proud mother of two spirited boys with big imaginations. Being a mom has made me realize just how innocent children are. My boys have no idea that according to our society, certain things should be off limit to them including the color pink.
The idea that a color is either masculine or feminine is absurd to me. I created Quirkie Kids – a line of pink tees for girls AND boys – to encourage kids to embrace their uniqueness. Some boys like green. Some boys like blue. And some boys like pink and I say: why not?
To me, Quirkie Kids is about more than just pink t-shirts. It’s about giving both boys and girls more options to express themselves through their clothing. The tees feature playful designs of things not normally associated with the color pink. Think: “boy design on a girl shirt”.
I’ve had some people question my motives for doing a line of pink tees for girls AND boys. I am not saying that all boys should wear pink. I just think that boys should be allowed to wear pink if they want to. I know the tees are not for everyone, but I also know that some kids will really enjoy wearing them!
I am doing a Kickstarter campaign hoping to raise money to launch Quirkie Kids as a small business. Since Kickstarter is an all or nothing deal, I need your help. Unless the campaign gets fully funded, the project receives no money.
Please back my Kickstarter campaign and spread the word about this project that is very close to my heart.
Thank you for helping me get these tees in the hands of some one-of-a-kind kids.
