Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
G Wear is an eco-friendly fashion line that provides trendy, vintage t’s designed for active lifestyles! Using t-shirts as a “canvas” and recycled fabrics as stitched-appliques, G Wear creates designs that allow the wearer to communicate a relaxed style all their own, with no two shirts being alike. Since the brand is made in Texas, G Wear felt the need to reach out to those affected by the recent tragedy and support its neighbors. 100% of the proceeds from the sales of the "West TX" G Wear tank top will go to the victims of the recent explosion and their families. http://mygwear.com/west-texas/.
All money raised will go to the 100 Club of Central Texas, which provides financial assistance and other support to police, fire and emergency personnel, and their families who are seriously injured or killed in the line of duty. They have set up a special fund to assist first responders and their families who suffered injury or death while protecting the residents of West, TX.
"We are philanthropic throughout the year giving to organizations like Make a Wish, but when this tragedy took place right here in Texas,we were compelled to help our neighbors in need," said Michael Wilson, owner of G Wear. "Life is about doing the right thing and helping people - we are honored to give back to the families that fell victim to this devastating disaster."
In addition to the West, TX tank, guests visiting the website http://www.myGWear.com can also pick their own design, applique color and t-shirt color to create a t-shirt that reflects their style.
G Wear began in 2008 as the vision of a local Ft. Worth, Texas fashion designer, Stanley Jackson. His inspiration came from his young daughter, Malerie, who at 4 years old (with a little help from her Mom), stitched a heart appliqué onto a simple dime store tee shirt. Jackson proudly wore the shirt around town and was always being stopped and asked where he got it. After telling the story over and over, he decided they might be onto something big. He created a few sample designs using appliqués cut from recycled tee shirts. They were an instant hit everywhere he went - hence G Wear was born.
“It’s important to G Wear to create a stylish brand that is eco-friendly and unique so we can be sure we do our part to take proper care of the world in which we live, making a better environment for our children now and in the future” said Wilson. “Finding any opportunity to also give back and help those in need at the same time is a win win for all of us involved.”
In addition to working with the Pat and Emmit Smith Foundation, the Lopez Foundation and various non-profits across the country, G Wear’s passion for giving back takes root in its ongoing partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of North Texas. A portion of all t’s purchased online is donated to the Make-A-Wish foundation, allowing families to help further its mission to “grant wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.”
G Wear is always looking towards the future and designing new lines each year. Recently launched their newly licensed Sorority line and collegiate apparel is now reaching campuses across the U.S. Check out all the hot styles at http://www.mygwear.com
