Our hope with this EMS design, and so many others in our Cause Collection, is to celebrate the men and women who we all rely on each day and likely never have the opportunity to say thank you.
Gloucester, VA (PRWEB) November 07, 2013
How do you thank the Emergency Medical Services for being ready to respond at that potential moment in time most pray will never happen?
Peace Frogs is letting the frog do the talking.
This month, Peace Frogs, a Gloucester, Va.-based t-shirt, casual apparel and gifts company, launched its newest design in its Cause Collection – EMS, the POND’s first resPONDers.
“Our hope with this EMS design, and so many others in our Cause Collection, is to celebrate the men and women who we all rely on each day and likely never have the opportunity to say thank you,” said Peace Frogs President and Founder, Catesby Jones. “I know I wake up each day, go to work, spend time with my family and know the first responders are there if I need them. This is the least we can do to say thank you.”
Especially to the volunteers. According to the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians, there are more than 840,000 EMS personnel in the U.S. Nearly a quarter of those who work in ambulance services are volunteers.
The EMS Peace Frogs t-shirt features the iconic frog thrusting the peace sign in the air with his hand, an emergency medial worker’s uniform and the Star of Life. It is available in a heather gray, 100 percent organic cotton unisex t-shirt. The back features a large screened design with a smaller print on the front left chest.
"Peace Frogs is not icons or products, but really a state of mind,” Jones said. “We don’t represent any form of activism; rather, we are aware that now, perhaps more than ever, the entire planet needs some positively peaceful feelings. We care about the environment, but we care about people, too.”
Peace Frogs has spent the last year continuously layering in original designs in their Cause Collection. Jones said the collection will continue to grow.
“When we think of causes we think of people who do incredible jobs that impact our world – like nurses and teachers – and organizations working to make people well – like the Alzheimer’s Association and the MS Society,” Jones said.
In 2013, among other designs, Peace Frogs launched the “Love Never Fades” and “MS Gets On My Nerves” designs.
Peace Frogs has also launched designs celebrating those who serve – like the military, police, emergency workers, teachers and nurses.
“You can’t really say thank you enough to those who volunteer to serve,” Jones said. “But we can show our support with something as simple as a t-shirt that celebrates their service.”
