You can buy this shirt for $15. Absolutely 100% of the profits will go to disaster relief for victims of The Oklahoma tornadoes on May 20. Several years ago, our little group sold shirts called Believing in a Better Way for an orphanage in Haiti. When the Haiti Earthquake hit in 2010 we responded with another shirt. Many would say, “Why waste money on a shirt when we can send money directly?” I agree. If you are going to send money, please do! There are many great organizations like Convoy of Hope and the Red Cross who need your donation. Most of us however, are slow to give money simply because it’s not in front of us. So there are many great reasons why we make shirts.
1. It is tangible. The sheer fact that I can touch a shirts prompts me to act.
2. It makes me remember. When is the last time you thought of the earthquake in Haiti? I thought of it yesterday when I wore my Unite for Haiti shirt. Soon, the news crews will leave Moore, OK and most of us will forget about those impacted. There will still be lives needing restored, homes needing rebuilt, and debris needing cleaned. This shirt will help me remember and to pray and to help.
3. It reminds others. Wearing a shirt is a silent stance for helping others. This slight bit of good will may indeed prompt others to be the best version of themselves. It may start conversation. It may start a chain reaction.
Groups can sell them and customize them. Thanks. #StrongLivesHere #prayforOklahoma
