ONE LESS T-shirts...GET YOURS! :)

HOORAY!!!!! Our shirts are here!! Our amazing church MYCHURCH decided to support the cause of orphans and help with our shirt fundraiser!!  We are selling these shirts to help bring home our little Eli  (Briar's little brother) from Ethiopia. We found out yesterday that our Dossier arrived in Ethiopia.  We also found out our shirts are here!  We are still months away from meeting this boy (sadly), but every little thing we do makes me feel one step closer to him!
The colors might not be perfect in these photos. I took these after dark yesterday, so the white balance is a little off. I will take some more in good light ASAP.  We have three colors to choose from, Gray, Light Blue, and Green.  The world is yellow and the tree is a super light brown.  They are a very soft t-shirt (we are super picky about the shirts being really soft).  We have S,M,L and XL.  We would love for you to donate $20 a shirt (or more, if you feel moved to do that, but PERSONALLY, I wouldn't pay more than $20 per shirt!).  one less promo blog
You can email me at brooke.whitis@gmail.com if you would like to mail a check or money. Otherwise, you can donate at the bottom of the blog (scroll down to where it says Chip In, click on it, and donate $20 per shirt) Then email me, or put in your paypal checkout what size and color you would like. If you would like it mailed, please add $5 for shipping!

We can't wait to see where God takes this adoption journey! We hope you will help us spread the news not of our adoption, but of creating an opportunity for ONE LESS orphan in the world. That is why the shirt is not only Africa. We have started a non profit through our church called ONE LESS ORPHAN.  It is designed ot help support (hopefully soon in an emotional and educational capacity, as well as financially) adoptions that go on for the next (however may) years that our church exists. We want to empower people here and across the United States to take a stand for orphans.  In their community, in our country, and across the world.  Every person can make a difference...whether that means you just donate, or you adopt yourself, there is some way you can help.  Soap Box, DONE. :)  I know that some people are not supposed to adopt, don't get me wrong. I just think that we can all do something to make an impact.

I hope you like them. I hope you will get one.
If not, maybe you'll participate in the 5k that is going to be this fall. We are trying to work out logistics, but it looks like October. I might be running with a newborn!

  6. If you have something in mind the design but don't have graphic design skills to create one yourself and you are seeking some help! Then find a company that has a in-house design team that can help you make a design.

  7. Fabric determines many factors about a t-shirt, such as how well a t-shirt will hold its shape after wearing and washing. T-shirts can be made from 1×1 baby rib, jersey material, cotton spandex, among many others.
