What Are These Shirts About?
Thankfully we receive these questions often because...a) The LOVE. logo is spreading visual LOVE. to thousands b) It opens up the door to tell someone else about our beautiful children in Liberia, West Africa So, if you have stumbled upon this blog and you really don't know us, please don't run away. You have nothing to fear. We're just a big family that exist to rebuild the lives of orphans in Liberia physically, mentally, and spiritually and the LOVE SHIRTS you see around town are a HUGE way of how we do it! The story behind the shirt is actually pretty simple. An artist friend of ours (Jennifer Turem) came up with the design a few years ago, and we decided to throw it on a shirt. Everyone loved the simplicity and meaning of the logo and it didn't hurt that it is one of the most comfortable shirts in the world. So, we started printing more and after a few years, we're happy to say we're approaching 9,000 shirts sold.
This is Jennifer with some of our orphans.
This is Chrissy, Co-Founder, and the one responsible for packing/selling 9,000 shirts!If you didn't already know, the proceeds of 1 shirt provide 36 meals for orphaned children in Liberia, so if we multiply that by 9,000 you get (me reaching for my iPhone calculator)...
324,000 MEALS.... Yes, 324,000!!That's crazy, and it's mostly because of the generosity of our beautiful #OALfamily all around good old Bartow County. So, now you're wondering where do I get some of this LOVE.? Well, we have a couple of different options for you.
