As we have seen recently, ANOTHER school shooting has occurred. It keeps happening time and time again because of the easy access to the guns. Now, it is our turn to let our voices be heard. We are the ones that need to show the government that guns should not be easily accessible to anyone who wishes to get their hands on one. It should not have come down to this but it is OUR TURN to make the change. All Proceeds benefit the GIFFORDS LAW CENTER to prevent gun violence.

About Our Philanthropy:


Please buy one (or many) of our “WE ARE ALL” t-shirts or donate to help create policy & change needed to end school shootings! All proceeds will benefit the Giffords Law Center: to prevent gun violence

Front of T-Shirt: “We Are All”

Back of T-Shirt: “Thoughts and Prayers…” “Policy & Change”

    Elliot, Izzy, and Stephanie, I hope the bookmarks you received will be a keepsake for you when you get older, and they will remind you of this great project you undertook when you were young, along with the Stoneman Douglas students speaking up at the same time. Expecting great things from you all.

    I am thrilled with the students who designed the shirt and I ordered one for my granddaughter. However it has not been acknowledged or sent. It was probably 3 weeks ago. Please advise.

      Hello! Thank you for ordering a shirt! The shirts are expected to come in sometime this week. (This is intentional because this week is when the pickup dates are at school) there may be a slight delay, so we do apologize and will get you your shirt ASAP.

    Please contact me as to how I can get my shirts I ordered. I tried to include postage money but there wasn’t a place to include it.
    Great idea! Makes me proud to be a teacher-I hope my kids (1st graders) will be good citizens like you!

    Is anyone organizing McAuliffe students to march together on March 24? If so, please post to the McAuliffe community in some way. Another opportunity for students to wear the shirts in solidarity.

    When I see actions like this from high school students, it gives me hope for the future in changing these crazy gun laws, and defeating the NRA. Thank You students and keep up the good work..

    I sent a link to the Rachael Maddow show for more coverage. It took me awhile to find the story on 4 News web site as they had it hid pretty good.

    Did you give the story to channel 7 and 9?

    Also I think this design could be put on other items – jackets, mugs etc.

    Great job. I know I was never that mature when I was in the 8th grade. Stay in school, vote when you can, get your peers to vote, and run for office. Our son taught in the music department of Rocky Mountain High School and that although you have a fight on your hands with the NRA, this is a fight we need to win. Thank you students for all that you do.

    Good for you guys! I’m a former 8th grade teacher, current HS teacher and I know how hard these events are hitting our kids – I commend you for figuring out how to make a difference! Bookkeeping note: I have purchased 2 t-shirts and donated an additional $20 to defray shipping costs – keep up the good work!

    Good for you! It’s a pity you’re too young to vote as you’re smarter than the adults in Congress!

    Young people like you give me hope for this country and the world. Don’t stop now. Run for office. Speak out at every opportunity. For all the problems of The United States, you & I are free to speak out and criticize the leadership of the country if & when they deserve it. Don’t ever take that freedom for granted. Fight for it every day. Thanks.
