We’re trying out something new: creating giveaways for Kickstartered projects. Today we’re going to talk about the Votum Sunray, a watch that gives back to a good cause.

Votum is created by Jared and Jordan Nanasy and the pair are giving a portion of the proceeds to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Their watches run quartz Miyota movements.

You can back the project right here and you can enter to win here. If you win a watch and back the watch on Kickstarter Votum will refund your pledge and send you your watch.

From Votum:

?Everyone wants to look good, feel good, and be good and to a lot of people that means having a quality timepiece on their wrist. Everyone that has an eye for watches loves scrolling through Instagram and following all of the hugely popular watch and fashion profile that dominate their feed. People like seeing those watches and imagine those watches on their own wrist but deep down know that the probabilities of that are very slim. And I speak from my own personal experience when I say this.And that is why Votum Watches was born. We set our to create an eye catching, comfortable watch that is affordable to anyone in any economic status. That is our goal. We kept our design minimal so that it can be worn by anyone and be worn during any occasion and still create a conversation piece. We also wanted Votum to stand for something, we wanted there to be a meaning behind what we were doing. That is why, once we are done selling watches on kickstarter we will be donating a portion of the profit of each watch we sell to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.But we need your help if we want to turn this dream into a reality. We have recently launched our kickstarter project to raise funds for production, and for a limited time only, our watches will be selling for $69 for one watch of $119 for both watches.

From all of us here at Votum, we want to thank you for your time and we hope that you can help us launch our company by backing us on kickstarter!
