We hope your Thanksgiving was a celebration of gratitude! BDIC is grateful for your support of the Bright Idea Scholarship. To see how your gift can make a difference, we received the following message from Parker Burr '15, who received an entrepreneurship scholarship from BDIC to start his business, Feat Socks:
"FEAT Socks has moved out to Los Angeles, CA and we are currently on track to do over $3m in revenue! Last month we sold $100k online, this month we will do $250k! We now sell dress socks, athletic socks, wool socks, no-show socks, and did an endorsement deal with Massachusetts Olympian Aly Raisman. Her signature line has been doing GREAT."
The idea for FEAT socks was launched among a group of BDIC students in a UMass Amherst dorm room. Your generous gift will light up the bright ideas and big dreams of other BDIC student-entrepreneurs.
Please share this campaign on social media with other BDIC alumni so we can make it to our goal! Thank you!
