One thing is for sure: I couldn’t have started or finished this blog without help from other people. My friend Glen gave me the MacBook I have been posting these daily entries on, and my sister Megan gave me the idea to start it.
During the summer when I figured out I wasn’t going to have enough t-shirts to complete 2010 wearing a different t-shirt each day, more people helped me make sure I did.
My family and friends helped, which wasn’t much of a surprise. A few Hope Lodge guests were happy to pitch in and help the Lodge.
Then, people I didn’t expect started helping out. Website after website said they would donate. http://www.80stees.com, http://www.benjerry.com, http://www.bustedtees.com, http://www.chowdaheadz.com, http://www.crazydavestshirts.com, http://www.foulmouthshirts.com/funny-t-shirts/, http://www.hottopic.com/hottopic/Homepage.jsp, http://www.lastexittonowhere.com (out of England!), http://www.letterfromjohn.com/, http://www.lifeisgood.com/, http://www.nerdyshirts.com/, http://www.psychoreindeer.com/, http://www.snorgtees.com/, http://store.theonion.com/, http://www.threadless.com/, and http://www.topatoco.com/ all donated t-shirts.
Facebook friends I hadn’t seen since grade school and others I had never met in person sent me shirts.
Then, a brother of one of my Facebook friends said he would donate Etnies t-shirts autographed by Ryan Sheckler. Even though all of the website donations were unbelievable to me, this Etnies donation really blew me away.
I really can’t thank everyone for all of their support for this blog enough. You all made it possible, and you all are helping Hope Lodge. Thank you again to my family, friends, and all the websites and businesses that donated t-shirts to me. And thank you especially today to Christi and Robert Brink, Etnies, and Ryan Sheckler!
You can see this t-shirt listed on Ebay here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250749136629#ht_500wt_1156
