YOUR STORY MATTERS!
More than apparel, we're a movement.
I began posting on social media about the random acts of kindness that myself, my family and friends completed in 2013.
About 3 years later, the unimaginable happened. You can read more about my personal journey and the kindness I observed on the My Story page.
I began screen printing shirts during my recovery. I even raised funds to cover my minivan in kindness messages. Spreading kindness and inspiring others is my mission.
We are trying to be mindful and reduce our use of plastic so we package your order in one of our cotton totes and ship using recycled and reusable poly mailers.
“I’m surrounded by good people, doing good things. Everyday things. Extraordinary things.” says Baltimore photographer John Waire (The WaireHouse), creator of Shine Your Light Baltimore.
"$5 from the sale of this t-shirt will be donated to Baltimore Chesapeake Bay Outward Bound School. Outward Bound uses experiential education techniques in a supportive yet challenging environment to teach their students that they are capable of more than they ever thought possible."
We completed our 2020 season at the Fell's Point Farmer's Market . We are looking forward to the 2021 season and may pop in to the winter market sometime between January and April 2021, so check back for dates.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MY STYLE OF PRINTING
I don't consider myself a professional screen printer. I have found a technique I like that washes well and allows me to continue to create more goodness.
I use water-based inks which means the ink goes into the fabric for a soft breathable feel unlike many printers who use Plastisol which sits on top of the fabric and often has a very thick plastic/vinyl feel. If you choose a dark shirt with white ink, the print will have a vintage look. It will not be a bright thick solid white as I don't use under-bases. My prints are soft to the touch and I take pride in that. If you select anything other than black or white ink, understand your color was likely hand mixed by me and may not look exactly like those pictured or like any other tee printed. Your shirt is a one-of-a-kind. A true piece of wearable art as no two are exactly the same. Your tee/hoodie/tank was printed with my own two hands holding a squeegee that not only helps me spread the ink but a little love into each shirt.
Lastly, if you have to wait a little bit for your tee, I'm sorry. I work very hard to order and print efficiently. Most printing is done in the evening after I've worked about 8.5 hours at my corporate job. Items not in stock are ordered on Monday. With that said, thank you, because your order is helping me get closer to making this goodness thing my primary full time gig. ♥
Dawn Hill, our friend, lost her battle to pancreatic cancer on December 20, 2016 at the young age of 48. Small but mighty, she will be forever remembered. This year, we will continue making a difference in her honor by donating 50% of this shirt's profits to The Dawn Hill Fight Foundation. ♥ This foundation was created in her memory and its goal is to provide funds to help patients and families pay for their pancreatic cancer treatments locally.
The Dawn Hill Design was responsible for donating $405 to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in 2017 and $370 to the Dawn Hill Fight Foundation in 2018.
