Born anxious turns one!
So Born anxious turns one already, how crazy is that, my original idea has transformed into far more than I ever could imagine, so much more than a t shirt, or 20!!!!
When I first had the idea to do an awareness T shirt as you all know it seemed from a bad online purchase for my own use for Oscar travelling.
This then started an Etsy page with the beginning two designs,Months in I started a blog I then created a few more designs ,and with the help from a guy named Spencer Scorey the website was born, I loved working with Spencer he got it,. He got me, he could see my vision he actually designed the life jacked one and the Autism aware one and worked on the artwork for all my ideas, he really was part of the online creation of my vision, I won't forget him for that he's a top bloke, we then once it was finished started to network.
I started working with Nick Maxfield also and Rise Communications as it was time to step up a level with networking and connect a few dots I'm still connected to both and wouldn't be without them.
We have received some really positive media attention including a telephone call live from Eaamon Holmes! To date we have ~

✔️We have a shop space in Canterbury at an Emporium called walrus and oyster, run by Emma Davis an amazing lady with a complete understanding and knowledge of special needs, she has shown us great support in our mission to make the world a kinder place.
And above all that have a growing following on social media platforms, and are receiving regular messages of support and thanks .
We have dedicated a whole media section on the website to our story so far, it makes me smile and I can honestly say we are only in first gear😉
A year on and our message is still .as the day we started BE. KIND ,it is free, and we still believe this is the most important message of all, as it covers everyone in all circumstances, it's in fact a global message.
So we plan to continue building our army, continue spreading awareness, continue supporting the three amazing charities we started with and we hope to add more to the list as we grow, currently bornanxious makes monthly donations to :
😁THE KENT AUTISTIC TRUST
😁SNAAP( SUPPORT AND ADVISORY SERVICE)
Born anxious hopes to continue growing and spreading our message over this next 12 months in the UK and worldwide .
As the creator of Born anxious I'm still very much a one man band in terms of the merch side of things but I do have supporters and reps that promote the brand and message, these are all so valued and vital in our growth, I'm very excited for the year ahead .
I have just met someone very very special who we will be supported by but I'm unable to unveil yet so watch this space 💙🔥🔥🔥😳
