Extra Details:

I believe that doodles thrives because of its one of a kind community. There are individuals in the community that work more hours on spreading awareness for the brand than at their real job! I consider myself one of them. With this proposal I'm asking for your support by acknowledging my work and dedication to the brand and enabling me to push my own boundaries even further and therefore the brand! Additionally, I want to spread awareness on mental health issues and I strongly believe that BT's unique style has the ability to express our emotional state. This support of raising awareness of mental health issues corresponds to the Zeitgeist and is great PR for the doodles also.
