Paper Clouds Apparel: make your clothing matter

I’ve been a huge fan of Paper Clouds Apparel for years now, as it’s one of the coolest T-shirt companies I know — and it’s based in Phoenix!

Paper Clouds Apparel

Every two weeks, four new designs are introduced, and they’re all made by individuals with special needs. Half the profits from the company go back to special needs charities — founder Robert Thornton has helped raised more than $27,000 this year, which I love! This new campaign features art by Logan, a special needs teen, and profits benefit a scholarship fund the teen has helped create, to benefit special needs individuals who need education assistance. Check out the designs here.

Here are some designs I’ve loved wearing recently.

This world peace shirt was created by Heather, a Special Olympics participant with Pradar Willi Syndrome:
