“Ohana means family” and “Pets for Vets on Campus” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!
Saint Leo University’s chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority chose the Hawaiian word “ohana”, which means family, for the theme of their spring 2016 recruitment. The bonds of sisterhood could not be any stronger especially when wearing these cool blue shirts.
Pets for Vets on Campus is a student group at The Ohio State University dedicated to raising funds for the state chapter of Pets for Vets. The organization pairs shelter dogs with U.S. Veterans who suffer from PTSD, TBI, anxiety, and depression as a way to give these animals and our brave veterans a second chance at a happy life! This was their second t-shirt order and wore them at the annual Smooch-A-Pooch fundraiser where students learn about the benefits of companion animals while playing with dogs!

Did you know an octopus has three hearts? It’s no wonder our trusted octopus mascot, Inky, has a lot of love to give! With our #InkTheLove campaign we’re spreading the love to a few kind and compassionate customers who give back to others. Check out one of our featured customers: Guardian Angel Thrift.
Guardian Angel Thrift is a non-profit organization started by Laura Gaddis. Laura watched her mother suffer from Alzheimer’s for many years and wanted to do something to help find a cure. She created Guardian Angel Thrift to donate the store’s proceeds towards research and care for those affected. The store quickly grew and so did the amount they donated. As of April 2015, they’ve raised over $2,000,000! They’ve ordered custom t-shirts from us to celebrate both their $1,000,000 and $2,000,000 milestones.
Check out their website and Facebook page to learn more about the shop and to donate!

The Liberty Run Foundation is a non-profit organization providing veteran to veteran support. Through the Comfort Bag Program (as seen in the photo above), they are able to collaborate with the community to source hygiene supplies for not only veterans, but also the homeless and low-income populations. They also help to provide other items, including disaster relief items such as sleeping bags, ponchos, and other seasonal-specific items like jackets, sweatshirts, children comfort items (teddy bears, and toys), tents, and air mattresses.
Some veterans they help are so impacted that they join the organization themselves, which in turn instills a sense of purpose and positivity! You can get involved by following their Facebook page or checking out their website.

“Alpha Phi Omega at VCU” and “Jumping Frog at Faith West Academy” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!
Virginia Commonwealth University’s chapter of Alpha Phi Omega, a co-ed service fraternity, ordered custom shirts to wear during recruitment events and brought in one of their biggest pledge classes ever!

Did you know an octopus has three hearts? It’s no wonder our trusted octopus mascot, Inky, has a lot of love to give! With our #InkTheLove campaign we’re spreading the love to a few kind and compassionate customers who give back to others. Check out one of our featured customers: The Junior Bike Angels.
This group of young girls, called the Junior Bike Angels, help out the community of Lake County, CA, where wildfires destroyed hundreds of homes. The idea to collect bikes started when an area preschool started sourcing bikes for local children. This idea took off, and soon it became so popular that it was becoming hard to meet the demand. The girls took notice and decided to do their part to help out. They hope that the bikes bring a welcome distraction to the kids who lost everything in the devastating fires.
They ordered shirts to make them easily identifiable and unite them as a group when delivering bikes and at fundraisers (as seen in the photo above), and to date, have collected 480 new and used bikes and raised over $3,000! You can like The Junior Bike Angels on Facebook to follow their efforts!
Last week, the girls Destination Imagination team placed FIRST in the State of CA. They presented their community outreach project and competed against 9 other teams from around the state.
They will represent our State at the Globals May 23-29 in Tennessee. It’s a wonderful opportunity for the girls as they will not only compete, but engage in learning with some of the most creative minds in the world. 15 countries will be represented!
It’s going to cost each girl about $1300 to travel. They set up a Gofundme page to help cover some of the associated costs. Take a look and help out if you can!
