If you haven’t seen this yet, it’s pretty great. There’s an elementary school kid in Tallahassee who’s a huge University of Tennessee fan. But apparently he couldn’t afford one of their shirts, so he made one.
He drew the initials “U.T.” on a piece of paper. Then he literally just pinned it to an orange shirt. But the kids at his school were pretty ruthless, and he got made fun of a lot.
Then his teacher posted a photo of it on Facebook, hoping someone would buy him a real Tennessee Volunteers shirt. And something even better happened. The president of the university saw the post and sent him a TON of swag. Then the school announced they were actually making shirts with the logo the KID designed.
They’re selling it online for $15. And a portion of each sale will go to a charity called Stomp Out Bullying. You can preorder one through the University of Tennessee’s official campus store website. They’ll ship later this month.
(Here’s a photo of the original shirt he made and the one they’re now selling.)
Share in a Florida elementary student's Volunteer pride by wearing his design on your shirt too! Pre-order today for a late September expected delivery. A portion of proceeds from every shirt sold will be donated to @STOMPOutBullyng .https://t.co/NdnTtYREFL pic.twitter.com/OeTZvgC09Y
