Down Syndrome Awareness T-shirt Fundraiser

Front view
Back view
October is National Down Syndrome Awareness Month so I decided that it would only be fitting for it to be the focus of our final adoption t-shirt fundraiser.  With the addition of Greta, Felix, & Romeo, we will have seven (7!!) children with Down syndrome!!  Our family revolves around Down syndrome and part of OUR JOB is bringing awareness to not only our children, but also to countless other individuals with Ds.  So why wouldn't this be a GREAT idea for a t-shirt?!?

After hours of thinking and playing around with various designs and wording, I finally hit the jackpot ~ the Golden Ticket ~ of bringing the message of Ds awareness to a simple t-shirt.  At least in my mind it was...!!  So, TA-DA (as Teague would say) here is the jpeg image of the design I came up with:

Back of the t-shirts


Pictures of the actual t-shirts are at the top of this blog post.  I hope you like them as much as we do!!  Adult sized t-shirts are $20;  Women's Fitted t-shirts are $22;  Youth t-shirts are $16;  Long sleeve t-shirts are $24; and Hooded sweatshirts are $37.

The fundraiser ends on 11/9 and we MUST sell a minimum of 50 t-shirts in order for the fundraiser to actually go through.  If we fail to sell the required minimum, the t-shirts will not be printed and the fundraiser will be scratched. (Credit cards ARE NOT charged until we reach the minimum of 50 sold so there will be no transactions completed until then.)

If the fundraiser is successful by having sold at least 50 t-shirts by 11/9, the t-shirts will be printed and shipped about 2 weeks after.  Let's pray that this is the case!!!  And, with any luck, we will sell more than 50!!

Greta, Felix, Romeo, Silas, Teague, Trenton, & Mackie REALLY REALLY REALLY want 50 (or more!) t-shirts sold so that they will be able to wear their shirts and bring awareness to Ds so that the world will:

Individuals with Down syndrome are

Will YOU help them to get a chance to wear their t-shirts?!?  Will YOU help us make Greta, Felix, & Romeo Orphans No More by purchasing a t-shirt?!?  100% of the proceeds from the sale of each t-shirt and hoodie goes directly to our adoption fund.  We GREATLY appreciate you helping us to bring our precious children home and making our family complete!

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO GET MORE INFO AND ORDER YOUR T-SHIRT!!  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!

Receiving the Spirit of Adoption as Sons

14 For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.  15 For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!”  16 The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God.  Romans 8:14-16 ~ NASB
