Most people don’t need to look very far to feel overwhelmed by the countless unmet needs around us. It’s easy to feel discouraged, wanting to help but also afraid that some problems may be too big to approach. We wonder where the ordinary person fits in with things like disaster relief, fixing broken school systems, or engaging in the fight against cancer.
One solution we’ve landed on at Sota Clothing is to do whatever it is that you do best, in a way that supports those already in the fight. This is the whole idea behind Sota Clothing’s Minnesota Nice Project. We want to hone in on what we do best, designing t-shirts, to support those already on the front-lines of such issues. To do this we will be debuting our Minnesota Nice Project Tee this June. Although only a t-shirt, we hope it serves as a reminder of a value so deeply embedded in our state: that you don’t need to know someone before caring for them, that all people are worth fighting for.
Proceeds from the Minnesota Nice Project Tee will continually be going to various charities in our state. Its first stop being Chainbreaker, a two-wheeled grassroots movement chasing down cancer through cycling. Originating in Ohio, they will be bringing their race to MN this summer to raise funds for the Masonic Center at the University of Minnesota. Where there resides a group of researchers on the brink of cutting edge cancer research and treatments. Diligently doing what they do best in order to care for generations to come.
