As one of our first fundraisers, we decided to make and sell some Ollie T-shirts. The main goal is to raise awareness, and we thought we might as well try to raise some money while we’re at it.
Our initial goal was to sell 100 shirts and raise a couple hundred bucks. Thanks to the generosity of friends and family, we’re already at 150+ shirts and more than $2,400 in funds raised!
I can’t tell you how much this means. One of the scariest things you face when losing a child is that they will be forgotten. Their time here was so short, what if everyone forgets? It is indescribably powerful to see people wearing a shirt with his name on it, helping us celebrate his life and use his memory to make a difference for the thousands of kids that fight this battle every year.
