This message is so important to me as the prospect of being forced to emigrate like so many of my generation is for me very unattractive, especially with a two-year-old child. I have vowed to do everything in my power to provide for my little boy and myself here in Ireland by becoming an entrepreneur and setting up my own company "truzees".

Hi,

My name is Angela Mahon and I am a 29-year-old mom from Co. Offaly, Ireland.

I am hoping ThunderClap can help me to promote a company and product that I have developed - so far single-handedly. The product “ The Baby Girl Box” & “The Baby Boy Box” is aimed at the baby gift market under the company & brand name “truzees”.

Before graduating with a BA Honors degree in Design in visual Communications in 2011, I became a mother to a beautiful baby boy named Alec, as well as co-founding and establishing a collaborative organisation called Designhub. www.designhub.ie Designhub has enabled three fellow graduates (from various design disciplines) and I to start out as self-employed designers. Under the umbrella of this group, I also founded a second company; Brand Strategy & Design Ltd.


The prospect of being forced to emigrate like so many of my generation is for me very unattractive, especially with a two-year-old child. I have vowed to do everything in my power to provide for little Alec and myself here in Ireland.


Within Designhub, many designers are given the freedom to innovate by generating new ideas for themselves and clients. My passion for both branding & design (and since becoming a mother) naturally progressed into designing a baby gift for my own brand “truzees”. 


My first product idea is very simple; a beautiful wooden keepsake box with 22 unconventional illustrated milestone cards that celebrate the uncelebrated pivotal moments in the early years of life. I really wanted to develop a gift that speaks real truths of life's milestones and challenges and gives great tips, then Mom & Baby can be better prepared, while gaining a wonderful keepsake box. 


I really believe the cards are heartwarming as they are truthful. Babies will crawl, walk and talk, but they also do so much more. These unconventional milestones are endearing as they reflect the increments in which a baby comes to terms with the world. This is the first of many product ideas I have developed for truzees.


To achieve much needed funding, I submitted my idea for truzees to a crowd-funding website called Sponsume which aims at the European market. You can view my video & read my bio of truzees to understand more about it if you wish: http://www.sponsume.com/project/truzees


I am hoping your show can help in some way to get my product off the ground. I also hope that my own story could serve as inspiration to my peers, many of whom see no opportunities in 2012 Ireland and other countries that are now in recession.


Whether it is through social media tweeting about the product or Facebook links, any help to promote my cause would be so much appreciated. 


Thank you for your time & kind regards,
