Raising Up One | Design Contest

Because so many of you lovely ladies voted, 
I wanted to post an update.

For those that don't remember, 
Raising Up One is a free fundraising platform for adoptive families.

The held a design contest for a limited addition t-shirt for November's Adoption Day. design WON!
But as excited as I am that my design was chosen,
I'm more excited for the great cause that this will go to! 

"Erica from Simply Sweet Prints was the winner of our Design-A-Tee Contest! 
Her awesome family tree design will be printed 
on a comfy Women's tri-blend American Apparel tee. 
This tee is up for preorder and will also be available in *limited* quantities come November."

And the most amazing thing about these t-shirts,
all proceeds benefit Raising Up One and it's featured adoptive families! 

Another great thing...
since the contest results were SO close, 
they decided to print the runner up's design for pre-orders only!

Below is the design from Lisa of the Copper Anchor,
isn't it beautiful?!

Again both t-shirts are available for preorder-
and come November the Simply Sweet Print design will be offered in limited quantity.
After November both designs will be discontinued!

If you would like to place an order, just click HERE.
Preorders only go through the end of the week!

I had such a great response, that I also went ahead and listed my design
as a print in the Simply Sweet Shop

This print is great for all families. 
I truly believe the statement "Love makes a family."
And it's one I've been holding close as my own family goes through
some big changes this coming year.
I firmly believe love is what holds everything together.

Big thanks again to everyone that voted,
I absolutely love knowing that my design is going to such a great cause!
