Why “Charity Chick”?
By: Amie Slemaker
Making a “Charity Chick” t-shirt would be such a wonderful addition to the wide variety of Chick tees that are already available. I personally know hundreds of women who would wear “Charity Chick” with pride! Think about it…Who doesn’t give to charity? Whether they give for personal or tax reasons, everyone gives!
Charities help address important issues in our community and our world. Giving to charity is a way of thanking God for all the gifts He’s given to you. Giving back is good karma, the more you give the more blessings you receive.
Charities need help! So many people are hungry or are in need of other assistance. Your small donation can help save lives and/or feed the hungry. The charity I have chosen to receive a portion of the profit from the Charity Chick t-shirt is the Add A Meal Foundation. http://www.facebook.com/addameal OR http://www.addameal.org .
Add A Meal is a non-profit organization conceived and founded by my brother, Charlie Slemaker in the fall of 2010. Charlie, with the help of friends, family, and a group of dedicated forward thinking restaurants is making Add A Meal a viable and successful fund raising organization benefiting well established food banks with the experience and know how to help those in need. In Tulsa, the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma will benefit from all donations. Along with partner restaurants, Add A Meal offers restaurant patrons the choice to make a donation when paying for their bill. In the space provided on the bill, simply write in a dollar amount. In this way, donations to Add A Meal are made anonymously and with no pressure, and you can be sure your money will stay right here in OUR community!
Idea for the design- I am envisioning a logo with a daisy and in the middle of the flower, hands that look like they are giving.
I personally THANK YOU for your consideration and your vote!!!
I’ve been involved in theatre since I was a little girl. My dad used to take me
to rehearsals with him when he performed in community theatre productions in my
hometown. From there, my love of theatre grew and I have been lucky to have the
support of my parents in obtaining a degree in theatre and working for 15 years
as a director, choreographer and actress. So, “Drama Chick” just seems to fit,
not just me, but all of us who have a little “drama” in our lives.
If this ideas wins the Happy First contest, I think that the percentage of
proceeds should benefit Youth Services of Tulsa. Though I was fortunate to have
parents who helped me find my passion and supported me, not all teens have that
support. Youth Services of Tulsa creates great opportunities for many
struggling teens in in Tulsa who need basic support and guidance. I know they
would appreciate a donation to put toward all of the great things they do for
the youth of this city.
