Every year, we create a shirt or two that gives back a percentage of our sales to a non profit, an individual in need or a group that we feel could use a little help. We call them "Shirts That Give Back".
Since our opening in Aug of 2012, we have given back over $50,000 to our community and region because of these shirts. We appreciate everyone who buys a shirt and helps us to "Pay it Forward".
Some of the past groups that we have helped are: The Food Bank of NELA, Pilots for Patients, PAWS of NELA, The Zoological Society of the Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo, Mr Scott Caldwell, First West Flood Relief, and more.
Our first 2017 Shirt That Gives Back is our patriotic "I Want Ya'll" tee. We are donating 20% of the sale of each tee until the end on June to K9 Karma in Bossier City, LA. It is a non profit that trains dogs to help improve the lives of veterans dealing with PTSD and TBI. For more info, contact www.k9karma.com.
Our second 2017 Shirt That Gives Back is helping the Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo to get some new landscaping and boulders for the lion exhibit. 20% of the sale of each tee will help fund this project. A new young 19 month old male lion is coming to our zoo from New Jersey!!! Come meet this new lion at Zoobilation on June 10, 2017.
