April Shirt of the Month
Hey friends! We have been hard at work creating and perfecting our next Shirt of the Month (SOTM) and we are happy to say we love the results! Not only are we giving the option of a shirt, but this month we are also selling a hat for charity! This month’s shirt is a comfort colors pocket tee. If you’re not familiar with comfort colors shirts, let me just say I’m a huge fan! They are super soft and comfortable, made from 100% ring spun cotton. I have many comfort colors tees in my closet and love every one of them, especially the ones with pockets! The shirt features the Meg & Marie deer on the back with lemons inside of the deer. We are currently obsessing over all things lemon and couldn’t pass up this fun spring print! I know some of you are wondering if every SOTM will have the same deer design and the answer is no. Although our deer is cute (or at least we think it is), we know you probably don’t want to buy a deer shirt every single month, so we will definitely be switching it up! The plan for the next SOTM doesn’t currently include the M&M deer. Below the deer is the saying “The sweet just isn’t as sweet without the sour.” We thought this quote was appropriate because of the lemon print and also because sometimes going through difficult times in life makes you truly cherish the good times. This brings me to the most important part of our SOTM, the charity we will be donating to.
SOTM Charity: The Family of Logan Flotkoetter
As you know, 50% of the profit from our SOTM goes to a different charity monthly. This month’s charity is very dear to my heart, as it is for a family at the school I teach at. In January of this year, a 1st grader named Logan was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Burkitt Lymphoma stage 4 cancer. I don’t personally know Logan, but the school I work with is a wonderful community where I consider everyone in the district to be a “family”. On top of that, the thought of any family going through such a difficult time just breaks my heart, so I instantly knew I wanted to try to do something to help. I reached out to Logan’s mom to learn more about this strong boy and she shared with me that he is a shy, sweet, and silly 7-year-old. He plays soccer and basketball and loves to watch the Cubs and Chicago Bears with his daddy. He also loves Ninja Turtles (Mikey is his favorite), Star Wars, Ninjango, and spending time playing with his younger sister, Josi. If you’d like to learn more about Logan and follow along with his journey to kick cancer’s butt, please follow the Facebook page “Prayers for Logan”.
SOTM Ordering Information
He sounds like a pretty amazing little guy and his family needs our help! Please consider buying the SOTM and/or the hat this month to help raise funds for Logan’s family. Not only will you be helping them out, but you’ll also get to have a super cute shirt and hat in your closet to wear all spring and summer long! The SOTM will be available in onesie sizes NB, 6M, 12M, 18M, and 24M ($18), youth sizes XS-XL ($23), and adult sizes S-3XL ($29). The onesies are a slightly different shade of blue-green and neither these nor the youth sizes include pockets. The hats come in one size and will cost $20. Just as last month, these items are available for pre-order only starting today until April 27th. We will then have the products made and they will ship out to you no later than May 7th. Also, we ask that you purchase these items separately without any other products and they will be sent with free shipping! (You can purchase the SOTM and hat together.)
