A fabulous message

My friend Nicole is selling these awesome t-shirts to raise money in honor of her younger brother.  This is a fabulous cause, and a reminder to hold your loved ones close.  Please check out the flyer to read their story.  Nicole has a Paypal account for this, if you want to order one, send her your payment along with the style, color and size you'd like!  The shirts come in a women's V-neck style, sizes XS-4XL in green, pink, red and gray.  There are also men's and women's crew-neck style shirts that comes in the same sizing option as well as youth sizes, and in just about any color you would like, so long as it isn't too dark as they are only printing black ink.  The shirts are $20 which will include shipping.  If you choose to donate more, the extra will all be donated to Childhaven.
