The concept and inspiration comes from Merlanne Wood (aka Mrs. Wood) – a teacher in Lincoln, NE who put her heart and soul into her students every minute of every day.  She inspired fearlessly, loved unconditionally and gave back to her students without exception.  Routinely, she would purchase (out of her own pocket) food and clothing for students who did not have the means and personally deliver before and/or after school.  She never cared what people thought – good or bad – about what she was doing.  All she cared about was bringing love to kids who didn’t have a lot of love in their lives.

Our model is simple. Buy a shirt. Clothe a child. Keep it going.

Biggest Inspiration: Merlanne Wood – who informally adopted me into her family when I was in high school.  She was a schoolteacher who would frequently buy food and clothes for her students who did not have the means.  She lived life to the fullest – and always looked to make each and every person she interacted with feel better about themselves
