Peters Path Designs Exclusive Tee to benefit Southside Firefighters Burn Foundation

A few weeks ago, we participated in the Southern Women's Show in Savannah. Since part of our mission is to help charitable organizations, we searched for a project or organization we could help while we were there. We discovered the firemen of the Southside Fire Dept. were going to do a "hotties" fashion show during the event to benefit the Southeastern Firefighters Burn Foundation, a great organization that supports burn patients and their families during and after treatment of the trauma of a burn. We jumped at the opportunity to design a special t-shirt that we could sell at the show, and donate proceeds to the foundation.

The shirt, which features an antique fire truck with the phrase "Help Firefighters Help", designed by artist/filmmaker/photographer extraordinnaire Chris Nealon, was a huge hit. The firemen wore the shirts before stripping them off to throw out to screaming women in the audience. The fire department and Peters Path sold the shirts at our booths and raised hundreds of dollars for the burn foundation.

Half naked men wearing Peters Path? We know how to put the fun in fundraising!
