The response that we have received since the announcement of our company has been absolutely incredible for lack of a better term. It has been overwhelming, inspiring, and has motivated us to ensure that this dream, Dulo Supply Co., becomes a reality.
Because of the tremendous support, there have been a lot of questions regarding what it is we do exactly, what services we will be offering, and how we can make a difference of helping forward the mission of Depression and Anxiety awareness. This is a fair concern and we would like to elaborate in more detail on our business model and our plan to accomplish these goals.
Dulo Supply Co. is a business venture that will focus on selling accessories. These accessories will be minimal in design, but innovative in features. We hope to provide our customers with products that can simplify their lives and make things a little easier.
We will be announcing what our first product line is next week. February 1st will be the launch day of our Indiegogo campaign, which is a crowdfunding platform. This campaign will run for a month, and there our products will be available for purchase and we will be able to receive donations to forward our mission. If we reach our Indiegogo funding goal, then we will be fully funded and have the ability to order our first batch of products. In addition, if we receive enough funding we will be able to dedicate full-time to Dulo and begin to work on the initiatives we have planned.
Like mentioned, 5% of our proceeds will be used to fund our initiatives to increase Depression and Anxiety awareness. This will be done through a number of ways. The first being our partnership with the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. You can visit their site here. Through this partnership we will be able to choose how our funds are utilized, and assured that they are being used effectively. The funds can be used in many ways such as funding research on Depression and Anxiety, funding scholarships for therapy, and enabling others to dedicate more time to the cause.
This partnership will be extremely valuable for us in opening doors we may not have been able to enter on our own. However, in addition to this, we have plans for our own separate initiatives within Dulo Supply Co. A few examples being that I would like to be able to elaborate on more of my personal experiences. I would like to frequently post info, techniques, and strategies that have helped me cope with my struggles. My dream is to be able to dedicate full-time to this venture, and with my time hopefully be able to give back and help others.
We would also like to create an expansive community of members who have experienced similar challenges with these diseases. Within this community, we will be able to help one another and share experiences, stories, and examples of how we have been able to overcome our situations and continue to do so. Being able to relate and consult with someone who has been there is invaluable.
Finally, if possible, we would want to expand to the point where we can provide scholarships to those who can’t financially afford necessary psychotherapy and medication. These scholarships would be merited on an application process and review. I am passionate about this initiative because I have seen how expensive these resources can be. Fortunate for me, I was able to afford those services and they helped me get my Depression under control. Sadly, not everyone has the ability to receive them, and that is where we would like to step in.
I hope that this was able to clear the water and answer your questions about Dulo Supply Co. I am so grateful for the support that has been shown so far and hope that we can keep the ball rolling so that we can CREATE CHANGE.
