B > Than Cancer


What do you want to be greater than? Greater than cancer? Greater than violence? Greater than pollution? Kelly at B > Than (Get it? B > Than? BE GREATER THAN. See? She used a math symbol. Very clever, no? It's the little things that amuse me.)

Anyway, Kelly at B > Than, started her store about a year ago where she sells her T-shirts with inspiring messages. According to Kelly, her best selling T-shirt is the shirt that reads "B > Cancer" on the front and "Survive" on the back. And here's the sad thing, the most popular size she sells is youth small for 2-4 year olds.

I thought this would be an ideal company to highlight this month because, as you hopefully know by now, September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Not only can you get a shirt to help raise awareness for cancer (or one of several other causes), but you can feel good doing it since Kelly donates a portion of her proceeds to Cool Kids Campaign. For those of you who aren't familiar, "the mission of the Cool Kids Campaign is to provide kids with cancer a higher quality of life for themselves and their families while facing the challenges of cancer."

Kelly is giving away 3 of her creative, cool t-shirts to my readers! Just leave me a comment here and share your best idea for the next B > t-shirt. If you could pick anything, what would you have it say on the front/and the back? It can be silly (B > normal / freak) or serious (B > fear / hope) or whatever you feel passionate about! I like this one, B > Drugs/Say No. It's my favorite only because it's the only one I could think of! I'm sure you guys can think of more though. I'll pick 3 winners on Thursday, Oct. 2.

And from now until October 15, enjoy FREE shipping on your order automatically at checkout.
