Y'all. I can't believe it.
Thank you so much for SELLING OUT the second round of the Human Kind tees. That this message is being so warmly welcomed into the world is filling my heart with so much happiness.
It's important to me that the Human Kind/be both message isn't just about a cute tee. And if you bought one I'm guessing it might mean more to you too. So as you read in our About Us page we promised to contribute at least $1 per shirt towards a worthy cause. That goes for any shirt we create, not just this one.
I want to give you a little back story about how that idea came to being and how we decided to base 2*Wishes Tees around premise of micro-giving.
I was lying in bed a couple of weeks ago thinking about how I could tie our business to a passion of mine - finding a way to give back. I was doing what I do best - you know, scrolling through Facebook - and I came upon this video that's been floating around the interwebs.
Have you seen it?
It's impossible not to be motivated by this guy!
So afterwards, I did what everyone does. I Googled this dude. Johnathan Mooney. And this came up: Eye to Eye Foundation. In short the foundation is this:
Eye to Eye is a national, award-winning mentoring program for students with learning and attention issues.
We train high school and college students with learning differences, including dyslexia and ADHD, to mentor similarly-identified middle school students. We are an easy-to-implement social-emotional intervention with high-impact results.
Insert light bulb moment.
Up until that day I had been laboring about how I was going to possibly make a charitable impact by just selling a few shirts. What difference was it going to make if I collected a few dollars here or there. Big whoop.
Then I see this guy. And he didn't let anyone stop him. By all conventional accounts he pretty much had everything going against him and he was like, "Yeah, no. This is what I really want. So I'm still going to do my thing." And boy did he ever.
So you did it you guys. You donated $50 to Eye to Eye Foundation which according to their website is enough to provide art supplies to a mentee.
I bet you a dollar that mentee was wishing for some new art supplies. ;)
A million thanks for your support!
