Original Press Release sent out to news stations:
HOPE FOR JOPLIN T-SHIRT SALES UPDATE AS OF SEPTEMBER 2011
Through the sale of the Hope for Joplin tees, Bigfish Screenprinting, LLC was able to give over $167,000 to the relief efforts in Joplin! $125,000 was given to Convoy of Hope and more than $43,000 to Ignite Church/helpjoplinrebuild.com in Joplin. Over 40,000 shirts were printed and shipped to 48 of the 50 states and 6 countries. We partnered with Ignite Church/helpjoplinrebuild.com to continue selling the shirts, due to the high demand and the on-going need of the people in Joplin.
As a small company with 12 employees, we had no idea the impact we could have just by selling a simple t-shirt. We want to again thank over 150 volunteers and businesses in our community that contributed to this effort and made it possible to support Joplin and have such a big impact! From vendors that donated blank shirts to restaurants that catered and kept our staff and volunteers fed, there was no way we could have done it all on our own!
