“Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fall.” — Confuscious

Lawrence, Kansas is no stranger to comebacks. Natural disasters, wars, raids, tyrants, protests, and everything in-between. Time after time the community and the people bounce back and thrive. In fact, a phoenix rising from the ashes is the official symbol for the city. So when we received a call from a good friend and partner at Weaver’s Department Store we answered.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shattered lives and created struggle we haven’t seen in ages. Together we will get through this and we are ready to do our part. So our team created a series of apparel with messaging to support #RiseLawrence. Our Community. Our Future. And like Weaver’s has done so many times before they are supporting the community by giving back to the people that have supported them for so many decades. 18.57% of all proceeds from the merchandise will go back to Lawrence. 1857 because thats the year Weaver’s was founded in Lawrence.

Did you know that when Kansas farmers burn their fields that the native growth comes back stronger and healthier than before? The flora that returns is because of the engrained root system. Deep roots lead to strong regrowth. In Lawrence, Kansas… LOCAL RUNS DEEP!
