The Little T-Shirt That Could (Cont')

Remember the little t-shirt that could?

Well, it's still kicking butt out there!!!!!!
My sister just spoke to Kim (co-owner of Creative Impressions and designer) and she says that to date there have been more than 3,500 shirts sold!!!!!!!!!!!!  That's 3,500 people wearing this message! (and for Karen and me, it's neat to know that 3,500 people out there are wearing our mom's initials (notice the "MJ" in the tiger striping).  Karen says that she can remember sitting in Kim's office and them saying "if only we can sell 100 shirts."
That's around $18,000!!!!!

It's unreal!
The majority of the money has gone to TNT for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and some has gone to help families directly affected.  
I'm so proud of Karen.  Mom would be more than proud.  I can't even imagine what she would say about it!
Now I must go and have this cry that is creeping up in me from my emotions about all of this.
Thank you thank you thank you to all of you who have helped make this happen. 
And to anyone who would like to order shirts, please CLICK HERE to visit the Fight Like a Tiger fan page on Facebook.

Oh my gosh, I LOVE these! My nephew was a patient at St. Jude and I just ordered one for me and one for each of the kids... hope they will be in in time for St. Jude Day at Chili's, but if not, we will definitely wear them to the St. Jude Walk!

Thanks for the hook up!

Oh wow! Thanks so much! These shirts were made in memory of my mother, Mary Jane. She lost her battle with Leukemia in 2006, but what a great way to honor her.
My father passed away 19 months after her of a broken heart. Not a thing in the world wrong with him other than he just couldn't live without her. It's a beautiful love story. I miss them so much.

Thanks so much for the order. It's hard to believe what this has all turned into, but the shirts ARE pretty awesome...hahaha! Of course they sell like hot cakes (:
