Clayshootingapparel.com has joined the fight with our clay shooting breast cancer awareness t shirts!
Everyone knows that October is all about wearing pink in support of breast cancer awareness month and raising funds to help support research toward a cure and assist those suffering from this horrible disease.
Current popular t-shirt designs are constantly reminding us what really “matters” in life and whose lives matter. So, our special clay shooting design for breast cancer awareness t shirts had to be on-trend and stand up to the test too! And we think it did well, with its dual message reminder that EVERY PAIR MATTERS both in breast cancer awareness and sporting clays.
Breast cancer can affect anyone…every man and woman must be aware and help fight the fight. Think about the last time you won 2nd place instead of 1st in a competition because of one missed bird. EVERY PAIR really does MATTER…both in life, and in sporting clays!
We introduced our EVERY PAIR MATTERS breast cancer awareness t shirts design back in early August as a pre-order on t-shirts and embroidered hats. We had planned to just do one large press run and have everything ready to ship out by mid-September to arrive in plenty of time for October wearing. And that was a huge success! But it didn’t end there.
Since then, throughout September and now well into October, we have continued to receive many additional orders and have even had a special fundraising event hosted around the design. The EVERY PAIR MATTERS Breast Cancer Awareness Fun Shoot, hosted by the Powder Creek Ladies League in Lenexa, Kansas, was held on October 17, 2020 and I’m told it will now be an annual event!
This is exciting for us, allowing our breast cancer awareness t shirts design message to spread further and help raise additional funds to help others. The fundraising began prior to their clay shooting event by pre-selling our EVERY PAIR MATTERS shirts and hats as part of our fundraising program. All proceeds from the shoot are being donated to Gilda’s Club KC, a cancer support and outreach group located in the Kansas City Metro, serving their local community. Special THANKS to Kris Evans and Tiffany Harmon who spearheaded the fundraiser and event. We are so proud!
Along with our EVERY PAIR MATTERS design we had a 2nd design, BUSTIN’ FOR BOOBIES, which was also part of our fundraising program. We didn’t put it on the website for sale because we originally thought of it as more of a cancer awareness clay shooting “event” design that could be customized with an event location, year, etc. like the example shown here.
But what do we know?! People saw the design and wanted to order it, so we plan to post it for sale on the website next year, in addition to the fundraiser sales! Sorry to anyone who wanted one this year and didn’t get one!
If you are part of a group or organization that may be interested in hosting a fundraiser sale or event, then please download our Fundraising Made Easy Info Packet. We’d be happy to help customize a fundraiser just for your group next year that combines clay shooting and breast cancer awareness!
As for our own breast cancer fundraising efforts, we have been selling EVERY PAIR MATTERS breast cancer awareness t shirts, breast cancer long sleeve shirts, embroidered breast cancer awareness hats and ladies ponytail hats on the website and at various clay shooting events we’ve attended since August.
We won’t have the final numbers for a couple more weeks as people are still ordering the clay shooting breast cancer awareness t shirts and hats, but we have sold a lot! We plan to donate a portion of the sales to an organization that is both outdoors related and helps those suffering from breast cancer. Casting for Recovery is one organization that we are considering. If you know of others that you’d recommend, please let us know!
We would like to sincerely THANK everyone who has bought one of our breast cancer fundraising shirts and/or hats and helped us by telling others and sharing our website and Facebook posts. You have helped to make our “spur of the moment” efforts this year a huge success! We know that next year will be even better since we’ll have more time to plan. And, of course, there will be a new breast cancer awareness design thrown into the mix each year too, along with old favorites!
If you have pictures of yourself or your group wearing our shirts and hats, please feel free to tag us on our Facebook page and/or Instagram using #everypairmatters and #clayshootingapparel. We love to see our apparel in action! 😊
