On June 1st, Daniel the TV Addict and friend Mark Uhre launched a Kickstarter project that we’re incredibly passionate about. MARK IT PROUD is a line of LGBTQ inclusive greetings cards (http://kck.st/1WwYSmu). With one day remaining in our Kickstarter, I wanted to take this opportunity to shamessly plug the project on my other passion project theTVaddict.com. Here’s the story:
On August 16, 2015, Daniel married Aaron. It was a magical evening filled with family, friends, food and plenty of bowties!
But as luck would have it, there was a silver-lining to Daniel and Aaron receiving countless generic bowtie-esque wedding cards with the words “Mr. and Mr.” strewn across them. Namely, the genesis of an idea. But to make this idea a reality, Daniel would need some help. So he enlisted the talent of his amazing artist-friend Mark Uhre and MARK IT PROUD was born!
The mission of MARK IT PROUD is to not only give those searching for the perfect Wedding, Birthday, Baby, Coming Out and/or Celebratory card a little more variety then can currently be found out in the greeting card aisle, but to expand the visibility of LGBTQ cards as well.
MARK IT PROUD is our way of telling generations of past, present and future LGBTQ that it can (and does!) in fact get better. It is our hope that the next time someone walks down their local greeting card aisle, they see that a Wedding, Anniversary, Valentine’s Day or Baby Shower card isn’t just reserved for those with the title “Mr & Mrs.’
We’d greatly appreciate your support whether it comes in the form of backing us on Kickstarter, or a social media share on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and/or Snapchat.
