Rebuilding Together Kansas City; STRIKE (Out Poverty) & SPARE (Homes) Tournament

Here at Show Me Logos we have been fortunate to help several organizations with fundraising t-shirts. Most recently we have been able to work with Rebuilding Together Kansas City and their Strike & Spare Tournament that is focused on raising money to help eliminate unsafe and deplorable living conditions in the Northland. We were able to help Rebuilding Together Kansas City by creating a custom fundraising web store that gives them the opportunity to sell t-shirts directly online. This is a great way to raise money for your cause without having to deal with the hassles of order receiving, money collection, and order fulfillment. All you need to do is design your tee with our team and we’ll handle the rest!

A Veteran’s Story

CHRIS, United States Army
Paired with Charlie, adopted from Great Plains SPCA
Served in Afghanistan

I was born and raised in rural Oklahoma. Growing up, many of my family members served—Navy and Marine, and I spent a lot of time  playing “Army.” I always knew that one day that’s what I would do.

In total I served my country for 25 years. I enlisted in the Army in 1990 and retired in 2015 as a First Class Sergeant. Over the course of my career I fulfilled many different roles. When I was deployed to Afghanistan in 2011 I was a truck driver with the Ford support company for an infantry battalion. During this time I sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury, and returned with other wounds that were less visible from the outside.

This seems to be the most difficult thing to explain about PTSD—the internal struggle. Many people are familiar with the symptoms—stress, anxiety, night terrors, insomnia, depression—but it can be very difficult to detect when these symptoms are manifesting. There are times when I am having a panic attack in the middle of the store, but no one from the outside would have any idea, no clue what is happening to me on the inside.

Since I was diagnosed with Post traumatic stress in 2015 I rarely venture outside of my own home. Being around crowds and confronting situations that are unpredictable is extremely difficult—something that I avoid altogether if I’m able which has caused me to become isolated from people and completely prevents me from being able to do some of the things that I love to do.

In the past, several people mentioned to me that they believed that a service dog could make a positive difference in my life. Growing up I was always surrounded by dogs, family pets. There was no doubt that I loved dogs and understood what people meant by the special bond that people have between animals. I just wasn’t sure that I was ready for a service dog, for my PTSD to be outed in this way. But with time and a lot of research I came to the realization that maybe my friends and family were right, and that this step was worth the risk.

I’m so glad that I took that risk. Not even a week into training, Charlie has already made a difference in my life. He loves to cuddle which helps me to unwind at the end of the day and he’s ALWAYS happy. He helps me to get through places or situations I would entirely avoid—public places, crowds, loud noises, bright lights—because I know he is there. With Charlie I look forward to his companionship, to being able to go hunting and fishing again like I used to. Above all, I‘m most excited to live a more independent lifestyle, to have the sense of freedom and confidence to go wherever or do whatever I want.

The Warrior’s Best Friend ugly sweaters are being sold as a fundraising event for Warrior’s Best Friend. For those of you who don’t know they work with puppies. These pups aren’t your average furry friend though, they are specially trained companions to help Veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD.

Company Web Stores

Does your business use corporate apparel to present a consistent image of your company to your current and potential customers? If you do it is likely that you cannot stand the issues that come along with the process including stocking inventory (costs a lot), putting together shirt orders (takes a lot of time), and delivering apparel (a huge headache).

Corporate apparel has many benefits to your organization.

  • Establish a dress code that is comfortable and professional.
  • Consistent dress codes “blur” the lines between management and subordinates, this promotes honest communication and cooperation between employees.
  • When you have your employees wear corporate apparel, they generally identify more strongly with your company’s values and goals.
  • Customers often associate a consistent image in corporate apparel with well-established companies, this gives them more confidence in working with you.
  • Consistency is important, when they can associate their positive experience with an image then they will be more inclined to give repeat business.
  • Corporate apparel helps to give your employees more authority. Customers often associate employees who wear corporate apparel as experts.

We know that our corporate clients enjoy simplicity and that’s why we brought them the Company Web Store option for corporate apparel. This tool allows our clients to setup a custom URL that they can then send their employees to for apparel ordering.
That’s fine, but where do you benefit? You benefit from not having to hold inventory stock, gather orders, or distribute orders. Your employees order what they need from the web store and can pick up or have the apparel shipped directly to them.

Interested in a Company Web Store contact us today to ask about options.
