You Matter Tee // White
Every month we create a limited, exclusive tee. These shirts are tied to a unique charity that is not one of our regular charity partnerships. The shirt is only available for purchase for one week and will not show up on our storefront after the purchasing period is up.
Here we are again. And if you have been reading any of my recent posts, you know that this shirt of the month comes straight from the heart. For about a month or so, I have been overwhelmed, anxious, sad, just in a funk to be honest. It has always felt wrong to throw around the "d" word (depression) because movies and shows might depict it as something so different than reality or anything I have ever experienced. But we live in a broken world full of tragedy, injustice, pain, and horrors beyond belief... and to sit here and say that any of us can go through life without experiencing dark days would be a lie. Being a Christian carries the false stigma that you can never be sad. But all this stigma does is forces you to be alone in your darkness... spiraling further down until all hope seems lost. We aren't made to function without community picking us up when we are just inexplicably down. Don't go it alone.
September is National Suicide Prevention Month. Like "depression", "suicide" is a word that we just don't really like to talk about. But it is a very real reality, and especially in a difficult year like 2020, we have to be aware of it. We have to do what we can to remind people that they are not alone, they have value, and they matter. With the purchase of this shirt, 20% of the profits will go to Anthem of Hope, a faith-centered organization dedicated to amplifying hope for those battling brokenness, depression, anxiety, self-harm, addiction and suicide. The stigma needs to end. We need to talk about it. And we need to remind every person that we come across that they matter.
"And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all."
