Really wanna thank everyone for the tremendous support I've been receiving so far; its so encouraging to see that people do care deeply for those less fortunate and your willingness to lend a helping hand.
As an "artist" I of course love it when someone backs this project because he/she loves a particular design, but really though what I hope to accomplish, and I don't think I've done a adequate job getting the point across, is for people to express solidarity with my project, to really buy into the concept that all of us have the ability to make a positive, lasting impact in a world that's in desperate need of selfless compassion.
For the majority of my life I was a fervent believer that people are born evil, and only through nurturing upbringing and a positive surrounding can we learn to acquire proper, respectable values. But through grace I've been shown a new light, that we are indeed made in the image of a beautiful, wonderfully loving God, who has also given us a heart capable of great compassion, but it is up to you and me to discover our true hearts and realize our purpose in life. Yours could look entirely different than mine or even your own projection, but I believe we all have a higher calling that far surpasses mere material and self indulgence. My hope is through this humble project of one small person can challenge you to search for your purpose and dare to chase after it even if it seems as impossible a dream as ending world hunger.
Thanks for reading guys, and if its not too imposing please share most importantly the message. A few t shirts will only generate so much to help a kid or two, but a heart on fire can light up this world.
All designs will be printed on American Apparel Crew Neck T's, which are a bit more steep in cost but the quality speaks for itself, and more importantly they do not employ child labor! (imagine the irony)
[Title: i Love God and You]
Matthew 22: 37-40. The single most important, fundamental, precious of all the laws known to humanity. Let LOVE be our starting point to everything we say and do.
[Title: Love Thy Enemy]
Even the most ruthless rulers love their sons and daughters, so how are we any different if we too love only our families and friends and hate our enemies? Hateful revenge is an unending cycle of ever escalating pain and suffering, and LOVE is the only permanent cure.
My personal hero! Aside from resurrecting and carrying my Broncos into the playoff, Tebow is constantly reaching out to the underprivileged and genuinely caring for every person he comes across. Whether you agree with his unshakable faith, Tebow is the kind of role model that all of us, especially aspiring young athletes, desperately need in a world that preaches self love.
Not many people can handle Lin's meteoric rise with the kind of humility and grace that radiate from his every action and word, and they come as naturally to him as breaking ankles on the court. God gives us gifts and talents according to our hearts, and it should surprise no one that Jeremy has been blessed with so much awesomeness.
[Title: Strawberry Infantry]
First of my original Fruit Fighter series. I got the inspiration from, ready? The ongoing war. Hear me out. Instead of spending billions of dollars on military arms to combat violence, which is like trying to put out fire by piling a mountain of coals on top, how awesome would it be if we can arm our troops with food and fruits and share our resources with those in desperate need.
Violence will only breed more violence. Love is our only hope of ever ending the vicious cycle of pain and suffering, and all of us can make a difference.
