This gesture gave me hope at a time I needed that sign to know that I could do this and it made me feel clean, renewed, and refreshed – something I hadn’t felt in quite a while. This was a turning point for me. Thanks to the generosity of our followers, last year we donated almost 150 t-shirts to others in programs to support them to move beyond destructive behaviors. This year we want to surpass that number and spread even more hope and support to others as they embark on the awe-inspiring journey of recovery knowing that they ARE NOT ALONE. So this year we have a twist! There are three ways you can donate a t-shirt spread HOPE to another this holiday season. Purchase Bon Jovi’s Unplugged perfume or cologne using the links below and for no additional charge other than the cost of the item, we’ll donate a t-shirt to someone in need this year. Or if you’d prefer to just donate a t-shirt, use that link as well! Thanks for your support and may this holiday season find you experiencing those precious moments that life is really all about!
