In the hustle and bustle that this month has been so far I completely forgot to share with you all what this month's cause is. If you weren't aware, each month Southern and Thankful sales are totaled and then a percentage of the total sales is donated to an organization or group. A huge part of Southern and Thankful is understanding the importance of giving. Therefore, when you purchase a shirt during the month of March you are not only helping yourself, but you are helping others who truly need it. This aspect of my brand has been so rewarding and so beneficial to me as a person because being able to help others is one of the most important things we as Christians and humans should do. Just remember that when you see the cute shirts! You can do good along side Southern and Thankful.
March is Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Month and this week is MS awareness month. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) involves an immune-mediated process <http://www.nationalmssociety.org/What-is-MS/Definition-of-MS/Immune-mediated-disease> in which an abnormal response of the body’s immune system is directed against the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. There are various types of MS in the world and 2.3 million people worldwide are affected by MS everyday. I have personally seen others struggle with this disease and I have also seen family members and friends hurt because their loved one is suffering. A couple of years ago I walked the MS walk along several other survivors, those currently battling, and others who were there to offer support. It was a very cool experience being around those who were fighting MS, but making a point to do the walk. My good friend Hannah Oliver's platform is Multiple Sclerosis: Taking Steps Toward a Cure. She has been affected by MS and has done an amazing amount of work to raise awareness about this disease. Read more of her story and how she has done her part to help those who need it most: http://hannaholiver9.wix.com/hannaholiver#!multiple-sclerosis/c1wk7
Of course, you can do things to help out like participating in the MS walk or wearing orange this month to raise awareness, but know that when you buy a Southern and Thankful product you are helping those who struggle with MS on a daily basis. I am Southern and Thankful for those who put time and efforts into helping those battling MS. Join me and the millions of others in supporting those with MS.
Share this with friends and family members because the more shirts that are sold the more we are helping a greater cause. I cannot imagine the pain and struggle those living with MS face. And that is why Southern and Thankful is supporting them this month. Join me!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way. A recent graduate from Texas Christian University who loves any creative insta post, all donuts, and dress pants that make you do a double take. I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
