For The Kids - Inspiration For All
Thursday, December 22, 2011

For The Kids visionary Tommy Simunovic speaks softly, but carries a big message. His message – promoting being a positive influence on kids. The reason he speaks softly – a tracheotomy he had as a child, which was one of 73 surgeries he went through. With his work, Simunovic has turned a life that almost wasn’t into one of inspiration.

Simunovic, however, isn’t standing alone as some kind of inspirational pillar. Through his For The Kids line of clothing, which currently includes t-shirts and hoodies, he has some of the biggest bands in the country joining him in spreading his message. Members of My Chemical Romance, Miss May I, August Burns Red, and Woe, Is Me have all been spotted wearing his For The Kids shirts while on stage, which is fairly incredible for a brand that was just launched earlier this year.

I caught up with Simunovic to find out more about For The Kids, including what initially inspired him to launch the company, and what he hopes its legacy will be. Simunovic also discussed his own childhood, how growing up in hospitals affected him, and some of the things he saw that made him realize kids need more positive influences in their lives.
