David Merritt - Sharing Something Special

Submitted by David Merritt on December 5th, 2012 at 9:27 AM

I had some incredible years playing at Michigan. And that was because of my teammates, the staff, the fans, the tradition. I'm so thankful for my Michigan experience and wanted to share a new venture I'm working on with the Michigan faithful. It's called Merit.

Merit is cause design. We create fashionable products that help disadvantaged youth get to college by donating 20% of your purchases to fund college scholarships. In addition, it's important for us to provide resources and opportunities for underserved youth to gain college admission. Therefore, we've launched FATE (Day 1 Recap), our very own education program with Detroit's Jalen Rose Leadership Academy, preparing the next generation to embrace their education and become world class citizens.
However, in order to officially launch Merit, we need the proper funding. We are in the midst of a crowdfunding campaign at http://indiegogo.com/merit. From now until December 21st, you’ll be able to grab Merit product, help us manufacture the line, and raise money for underserved youth to go to college.
Any support you can give, even if it's just a tweet, is much appreciated. Thank you so much for your time. Wherever you may go, GO BLUE!
