      I made a pledge under Susan Eyrich but when you give a shout out on Facebook could you thank my son Jesse. He has Autism and has struggled with this lately. He decided that he would take Autism and use it to help others with disabilities. I know he would love it! Thank you! -Susan aka In Our World :)

      I hope we get there.

      I absolutely cannot wait to order a shirt from the new line that this campaign will fund! As a person connected to the special needs world on so many levels, I cannot think of a better cause to support through the purchase of a t-shirt. Love, love, love everything about Paper Clouds Apparel. Please help us who pledged by joining the cause! Thank you <3

      Karen, we are going to have a children's line on our next line of shirts. But unable to find a bamboo wholesaler who has bamboo shirts in children's sizes so they will be made of 100% organic cotton. Thanks again for your support and comment !

      Have you considered expanding to children's sizes? Many of the designs have an element of whimsy that I think would be extra wonderful on children.

      I just found you tonight. I think what you're doing is so cool & I love your designs and colors. So I pledged. I pledged enough to get shirts (I'll probably buy more shirts later). I am so looking forward to you getting funded & me getting shirts, so I tweeted about this and posted it on my facebook page, too. I just don't know how I'm ever going to choose...I love the Orange Blossoms and the Winter Tree, and the elephant, and the kangaroo, and the happy cow...and... well you get the idea of my dilemma! ; )

    15. Cindy Watrous on September 2, 2012

      I'm upping my pledge--I will be crushed if this doesn't get funded!

      I bought my shirt over two years ago and it's great. Super comfy. You get a great looking and feeling t-shirt and you support the special needs community at the same time. It's a bargain. I've known Robert Thornton, the founder of Paper Clouds Apparel for over 10 years. He's caring and driven. The support you extend to PCA will allow Robert to expand this enterprise and help more and more people with special needs live meaningful productive lives. This project is incredibly worthwhile. I feel very good about supporting my friend and this company. I hope more people do the same.

      My paper clouds shirt was a gift and it was the best gift ever! By far my favorite shirt and I'm proud to wear it. I can't wait for my new shirt I just ordered. :)

      I love wearing my favorite t-shirt and knowing that there's more to it than just comfort. It's truly made with care and intention. I've gifted a few and wasn't surprised that they became favorites as well. Between the quality and individuality of the artwork there's no comparison. They are the best pieces in my everyday wardrobe.

      These shirts are absolutely amazing! I already own two that I purchased when the company first started and I was amazed at just how comfortable the bamboo is, they put even the my softest cotton shirts to shame. The fact that the art work was designed with a ton of heart by special needs individuals makes these shirts an even better project to fund.
