Buddha Gear, producers of Yoga and Meditation headbands, hats and beanies with a cool kick, launched their Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign on Monday, April 29. Buddha Gear’s campaign was fully funded in 6 hours and is #1 in trending fashion out of 27,800 campaigns! The Kickstarter funds will allow for brand expansion and more opportunities to clothe the Salt Lake City homeless.
Jason Latas and Joy Schade, co-founders of Buddha Gear, bring unique skill sets to their company. Jason has traveled and studied with spiritual masters across the globe. “I have been an adventure guide and wellness coach for over 2 decades and bring my varied experiences to make BuddhaGear special,” says Latas.
Schade has been designing and selling hats for 12 years. “I’ve put hats on over 200,000 women,” says Schade. “This is my passion!”
Buddha Bands provide fashion and function, with moisture-wicking fabric and a hidden pocket that holds your chosen crystal over your third eye for better yoga, meditation and sleep. Every crystal has a different energy and vibration and facilitates a slightly different experience or journey when held over your third eye. A different crystal takes you on a different journey!
Buddha Gear always gives back a portion of all proceeds to help clothe the homeless. Buddha Gearrecently donated over 200lbs. of clothing to Salt Lake City Women’s Shelter and the Buddhist Temple.
About Buddha Gear:
Buddha gear is all about spreading seeds of kindness and mindfulness with a cool kick and awesome brand! Everyone wears hats, headbands and beanies with someone else’s logo on it. Buddha gear even pays other companies to advertise for them all over our bodies. Buddha Gear’s goal is to create a cool way to wear a symbol that people actually resonate with as opposed to being a walking billboard! Buddha gear likes to think of it as “an outward expression of an inner reflection…”
