Self Identity Issues

Through indoctrination, subliminal programming, mind control, many from childhood are told they have to fit in. We have to be the same, dress the same, act the same, laugh at the same things.

Are You For Us?

Are You For Us?

This is a legit question. It's also the slogan for Forus Athletics, a socially-conscious athletic wear brand that launched August 4 in downtown Indianapolis. Forus' founders [former and current athletes] wanted to solve a problem with shoes that many other athletes experience - worn down and/or non-supportive insoles - but they also wanted to create something that would benefit people outside the athletic & shoe fields. They wanted to create a brand with an even greater purpose - a movement. So they invented an insole that provides support with amazing comfort [I kid you not], and they have forever pledged 10% of profits to organizations worldwide that service children. They have also promised to award scholarships to US college students who wish to work in career fields that involve and/or aid youth. Forus is not just a business, it's a cause that has brought together friends, family, colleagues, and even strangers who wish to contribute their individual talents and expertise to help Forus succeed. It has given everyone a feeling of purpose and community. Forus Athletics has been running a campaign on the crowd-funding site Indiegogo.com, and there are only 4 days left. BUT I am so excited to say that Forus is more than halfway to its goal! With a collective effort and one last push I believe Forus can meet its goal of $40,000. [Campaign here: bit.ly/QkgDOr] That is why I ask - "Are You FOR US?"
