People are buying these blue rings to 'fight Trump'

WATCH | What these blue rings symbolize

Breakfast, a creative agency in New York City, is manufacturing blue rings to "fight Trump."

The rings, which are called "Blue," themselves aren't that special. They're pure aluminum and blue, but what they symbolize is what's unique.

They cost $20 each and all the profits will go toward supporting "five liberties Trump hopes to eliminate."

The ring, called "Blue," is made from aluminum and symbolizes support for five liberties (equal rights, reproductive rights, gun control, LGBT rights and climate change)

It's a symbol ... that there are some major things that we need to keep fighting for and to protect for our families' friends and our children.

The agency first made the rings for its employees before realizing that they had just made might interest more people around the world.

Where do the profits go?

The profits will go to the following five organizations:

  1. American Civil Liberties Union
  2. Everytown
  3. Planned Parenthood
  4. GLAAD
  5. Environmental Defense Fund

Zolty says he hopes people will be able to identify other like-minded people in public by looking for the blue ring.

The five liberties Trump is hoping to "eliminate"

In an email conversation with Circa, Zolty said the five liberties he feels are threatened by a Trump presidency are:

  • equal rights
  • reproductive healthcare, research and education
  • gun control
  • climate change
  • LGBT rights

We reached out to the Trump campaign for comment, but they did not respond.
How can I get one?

Breakfast set up an Indiegogo campaign to raise the money to make the rings, so while you can't order your blue ring immediately, you can pre-order yours right now.

At the time this article was written, the company had raised about $7,000 of the $10,000 they hoped to raise.

Andrew Zolty, one of the company's founders, said they had received orders from 34 states so far and would be opening up international orders soon.
