Same Team Launches Gun Control Campaign
Contact: Nick Gower, cofounder SAME TEAM Goods, (864)420-4210
SANTA CRUZ, CALIF. - Last week, Santa Cruz based apparel company SAME TEAM Goods launched a line of shirts in support of Gun Control. These shirts feature their usual Same Team logo in athletic font on the front, but include a second screen print with an assault rifle in a crossed out circle, on the back. (Image Below)
100% of the proceeds from these limited edition shirts will go to Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence and to Everytown for Gun Safety in an effort to make some much-needed change.
SAME TEAM is based on the idea that we are all in this together & their mission is to encourage people to think about others and care for their community. Further, it is based on the notion that life is better with friends and that joy and gratitude enhance quality of life. You can read more about our mission here: http://www.sameteam.org/about/
Same Team has done similar fundraisers in the past. Last fall they partnered with band Railroad Earth at Hangtown Music Festival to raise over $3,000 for Sonoma wildfire relief non-profit Hearts 2 Hands: https://www.hearts2hands.org/events/
"Same Team Goods stands with the students of Stoneman Douglas High School and so many other survivors of gun violence. We are advocates of more responsible gun ownership and the banning of semi-automatic weapons. We hope to see you out for the March for our Lives (http://santacruzcommunitycalendar.org/CAL/R01235/) on 3/24"
On an average day, 96 Americans are killed with guns. According to CNN, the US makes up less than 5% of the world population, but holds 31% of global mass shooters.
You can order these four shirt styles (in heather royal blue) on their Etsy page: www.etsy.com/shop/sameteamgoods. All SAME TEAM apparel is screen printed by hand, in house. Your support will go towards saving lives from gun violence. You can also donate directly to Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence (http://lawcenter.giffords.org/) and to Everytown for Gun Safety (https://everytown.org/).
