* This was a fundraiser tee that I had just a handful of extras left over from my fundraiser a few months back. After these are gone they will not be reprinted.
I've done numerous fundraiser tees for others going on mission trips and such before, but this is my first personal fundraiser tee. A couple weeks ago when everything began to shut down, I must admit I was not in the best of moods. A pity party is probably the best way to describe it I'm afraid. I was scrolling mindlessly through Facebook when I saw a post from Finny Matthews, Alpha International Ministries. There were pictures of people from India who were suffering from the country's total lockdown, thousands of migrant workers who go from their homes to the cities were stranded on the highways and bus stations. Without work these people have no income which means no food.
Both India and Nepal are in mandated total lockdown.
Violators face arrest imprisonment.
Food shortages are increasing.
People fear starvation more than the virus.
AIM is putting together relief packages to feed families who need it most. Before the lockdown, these families were earning $4 a day, now it's nothing because they are unable to work. The average family has around 7 people and lives in a home about 400 square feet. Can you imagine your entire family living in a space the size of a garage with nothing to eat?
Seeing this post broke my heart and opened my eyes to how much God has taken care of me and my family. I can sit here and feel sorry for everyone, guilty for "why not me" and feel powerless to do anything, and not do anything. Or I can thank God for His blessings and do what little I can to help. That's where you come in, too :) For every "Never Be Afraid" tee sold, all profit goes to Aim, towards helping to buy relief packages of food.
And please, check out Alpha International Ministries, they do so much more. You can also donate directly to their relief fund as well.

As always, our tees are always soft and snuggly and this one is no different. The design is hand-lettered with love as well.
Corrie Ten Boom was a Christian who hid Jews in her house during the Holocaust and also suffered in one of the concentration camps as well. Her story is definitely one worth reading.

I have purchased several items from Grace & Cotton over this past year, and I think this is my favorite. Love the style of the tee, the positive message, and the fact that it looks just as good as it did when purchased! (And, it has been worn and laundered MANY times.) Can’t go wrong for yourself or as gifts for others!
I love this shirt, it has held up in washing many times and the softness of the shirt is the best. I especially love being able to share my faith with others as they read the message. I can’t wait to order again and to be able to support others,
I love this shirt. Very soft and comfortable. Great quality.
Love this Tee! So soft and has a wonderful message on it by the lady I am named after. She has such an amazing story!
I read the this shirt. Very soft material. Washes nice. Didn’t shrink.
