Designing for a Cause



So I've never been considered artistic by any means.  However I came across an amazing opportunity to design a t-shirt for a group of women that is very near and dear to my heart.  I live in a neighborhood with many young families and I have to say, I'm always pleasantly surprised by the amount of support they have for one another, not to mention the support they have given my blog and styling business.

Last month, a group of women in my neighborhood that have been touched by breast cancer, put together a team to walk in the Susan G. Komen 3 day walk and asked me to design a t-shirt for the team to wear and to sell to raise funds for the cause.  What an honor!  I jumped at the opportunity as they were having difficulty creating a simple design around a slogan that they had selected for the shirt which was Love, Unite and Inspire.  Pretty perfect, right?  I wanted the font to be bold because when I think of a tribe of women walking together, united in their fight to end breast cancer...well it's powerful and strong and so the font and lettering needed to reflect that sentiment.  I worked with the team to select the perfect color pink and type of t-shirt (who doesn't love a cozy grey v-neck?). We also opted for a men's t-shirt and sweatshirt in case you need options or you have men in your life that want to support this cause.  If you'd like to purchase the t-shirt, you can do so here

All profits from the shirts go to Susan G. Komen. Susan G. Koman has invested more than 889 million dollars in breast cancer research and 300 active research grants.  Every little bit counts and makes a difference to the countless people affected by this disease everyday and so I wanted to share it with you all in case you wanted to purchase a t-shirt or just see what I've been working on lately (I know, I've been a little MIA on the blog).  As always, thank you so much for following along and have a great week!

"Komen’s goal is a world where no one dies of breast cancer. Our investments have helped reduce breast cancer death rates by 37 percent from 1990-2013, but when 40,000 women and men continue to die of breast cancer each year, our work is far from done."
