SEED Stories

 

Imogen - 17 years

Imogen had an idea to create a line of pens with inspiring messages on them to share around her school. There had been alot of cyber bullying in her school and she hoped it would help if she spread some positive words around that people could keep and read every day.  She chose 3 different messages and printed each of them 100 times on different coloured pens.  Before she printed them, she took the drawings and ideas to her principal and he agreed to sponsor the printing costs to get it off the ground. Imogen has since taken the idea to a few other schools near her home and they have agreed to sponsor some pens for their schools as well.  Imogen charged a little more for the pens the next few times, and has managed to make a small profit. This has allowed her to use the profits to start thinking about launching other ideas she has.


Carl - 19 years

Carl had always wanted to start his own clothing line. He decided to use this opportunity to create a line of T-Shirts with his own unique personal designs.  He was able to raise the funds through family and friends to print his first T-Shirt, and once he figured out who his market was - he was able to sell them to order. He now has three different designs and is still selling to his target market with ease!


Rachel - 18 years

Rachel loves home furnishings... in fact she is so obsessed she decided to make her own line of fun and funky stuff for your home.  She started with a SEED, creating cushion covers with her own modern twist on old school quilting using material she had lying around at home. She invited a group of her Mums friends around for a "cushion party" where she sold 5 cushions in one night. The rest... so they  say... is history!


Johnny and Peter - 19 years

Johnny and Peter are artists, they have a creative flare that is out of this world.  They were so keen to draw and doodle, it would often disrupt their class work and became a distraction rather than a tool.  GET {Creative} took them on and helped them to create a plan which put their talent to work.  They decided they wanted to create decals to stick on the backs of surf, snow and skate boards. With the help of a mentor, they were able to work with a local screen printer to understand the process and then they sourced some start up sponsorship for their first prints. They now sell their decals to local surf, snow and skate shops and are hoping to go nationwide over the coming 2 years.


 Louise - 18 years

Louise has a heart to make a difference in the lives of family’s who are coping with terminally ill children. She decided she wanted to set up an event at the local Ronald McDonald House that would bring some joy, if only for a moment, to the lives of those sick children.  She gathered support from local businesses and for $0 was able to create a fun day for the children and their families. She had a family quiz with donated prizes, free entertainers, balloons, goody bags and she managed to get a couple of local sports heroes to attend.  It was an amazing day and the kids at Ronald McDonald House loved it.
