I'll try to be brief.

Last year a friend of mine suffered a stroke during training only weeks before his wife gave birth to their second child. As you can imgine life has been tough for them and he currently lives semi permanently in a rehab unit.

They have a garage at his home which they want to convert into living quarters for him as he can now come home for the weekends.

The guy is an absolute gent, would do anything for anyone kind of guy, and was fireman.  He is well know in the UK BJJ community and is a purple belt under Braulio.

Now here is where you guys come in.

A few of us from the club want to help as much as possible and have begun some fund raising acitivities. I'm looking for someone who can come up with a badass design for me that I will be putting onto a run of patches and possibly t shirts to sell in clubs and on the webs. I have a few ideas of what I want to be on there and if you are able to help please PM me for details.

Thanks

Sure, the smallest display would be on a patch aroubd 4 inches in diametre and the largest can be however big the design needs to be on a t shirt.

We want something fun and to the guys who have volunteered so far, which I am immeasurably grateful for, I've said think GTA Vice City meets Ninjas Riding Dragons lol

Too be honest, any badass martial arts, BJJ theme is good. Phone Post

I'm down to try and help. What's the money for exactly? Is his health care not taken care of or what's up? Phone Post

Never mind I was under the assumption in the uk this was taken care of but not being able to work etc must really kill him pm me. I'm not sure this is the best way to raise money though. Shirts will be really costly Ave won't guarantee anything. I know this sounds silly but carwashes or a bjj tournament where all the profits benefit him. Phone Post

my last message just disappeared.

The money is going towards converting his garage into livign facilities complete with wet room and general day to day costs. I believe most of his treatment is mostly covered by the NHS but his family is struggling.

There are a few things in the pipeline like a car wash whcih the Fire Brigade is doing but they will also take a % of the money for their own charity too. His brother is doing a Canoe trip from the Mersey to the Thames and I'll try and find the facebook page for it and provide a link (work filters it), I think it is called the hard way round or something.

I thnking if i can produce a shirt for £5 and sell it for £15 then that's a pretty decemt profit margin. Same with the patches.

Gotcha busy trying to be of help. If he was a purple belt a bjj tourney would be really cool and would make a lot. Sell the shirts there to Phone Post

I did not anticipate the costs involved.

Someone just quoted £1150 for 100 t shirts. If I had that I'd just give it to him lol Phone Post
