    Today I launched my first ever kickstarter style crowdfunding campaign. After years and years of work and preparing for a kickstarter launch they denied us due to a change in the rules of allowing sunglasses on the website. So now we need your help to raise the money and get the word out. Here is the overview of our campaign:

    1. Tailored Fit - Our innovative process allows us to select and alter the design of each pair of glasses to fit its intended user.
    2. Innovative Designs- Protos eyewear offers designs that can only be made by leveraging the most cutting edge software and 3D printing technology.
    3. Unique Material and Manufacturing Methods - Our striking eyewear frames also feature strong and lightweight materials.
    4. Environmentally Friendly - Protos frames are made from bioplastic and are hypoallergenic. Our 3D printing process doesn?t produce any waste material.

    We are looking to raise $25,000 and already have over $1,000 raised today. We are leverging friends, family, FB Ads, Adwords, and Press to help spread the word but it will not be enough. We need support from our communities. Please let me know if there is anything you can do to help.

    You can check out the project here: http://crowdfunding.protoseyewear.com

    Interesting project. I'm not a fan of a lot of classic kickstart projects (like the board game types) but yours is pretty interesting
