I'll be supporting the t-shirt campaign if the slogan is of the RNLI lifejacket "useless unless worn" type.


Personally, I'd be uncomfortable with gory or graphic images or slogans. The RNLI didn't use - or need - a drowned or drowning body to convey their message.

I support the campaign and especially support whole heartedly what Leapy suggests.

Great idea guys - I like the "Kill Cord" brand idea - if there are T shirts and stickers I would be very happy to promote what I can during the Venture Cup which starts on the 8th of June from Tower Bridge in London - gives us a deadline!

Yes - that sort of thing. I think I had the notion that the actual triangle could be fashioned from a "graphic" killcord. That would leave space for big font "Killcord". I'd consider looping one end of the cord over part of the text, maybe the "d" - like it was being worn.

But the MCA did with their "Don't drink and drown" campaign so it's not entirely unprecedented

MCA - Education - Don't Drink and Drown

Could we use the "useless unless worn" phrase as it is just as relevant to kill cords as lifejackets? Not sure if the RNLI would have any copyright on that, or if they did if they would be bothered.
