Kickstarter Campaign by former MI hockey player Scooter Vaughn

Submitted by Doc Brown on November 5th, 2012 at 9:23 PM

I thought I would pass on this message that was forwarded to me by the School of Education listserv. It is a kickstarter to help former MI hockey player Scooter Vaughn get his business off the ground. The ear buds look really cool and appear to be a great idea. I have already backed and so should you.


Dear Friends & Family,

I am reaching out to you for help in starting up my new company, Jamboo Headphones. My dream has always been to run my own product based company and I am almost there! I have spent months working on this with my friend and colleague, Austin Glenn, and we finally have everything ready. All I need now is to raise the necessary start up funds.


What are Jamboo Headphones?

Jamboo Headphones were created to give customers a unique, style-driven choice in the cluttered headphone market. We strive to produce fashionable, long lasting, and inexpensive headphones that will never tangle, will grab people’s attention, and will give off a natural vibe that fits your personality. The headphones will come in six nature inspired themes and come with a convenient headphone leash so you can take them with you wherever you go! 

The funding for Jamboo Headphones will be done through Kickstarter, an online crowd-funding platform where start up companies can advertise their product or campaign to raise funds from contributors. If the funding goal is not reached in a given amount of time, everyone’s money is returned. If the funding goal is reached your credit card will be charged on December 7th. I have 32 days to raise $12,000 that will be going towards the first round of inventory for Jamboo Headphones. There are numerous appreciation rewards for contributions ranging from $25 to $400. For example, if you donate $25 and we reach our funding goal, you receive a pair of headphones of your choice!

I really appreciate you taking the time to read this message. If you want to help me out and help fund Jamboo Headphones, click on the link below to be directed to our campaign. Please show some love and pass this email around to your friends and family. Thank you!

I've known him since he was a freshman in highschool (he is good friends with my little brother).  Scooter is bright, thoughtful, funny and driven. I am excited to see him follow his dreams and I am proud to be able to help along the way.
