When a good friend’s beloved wife was dying from cancer, then 13-year-old Jeb pulled him to the side and said, “Uncle Gary, God is good.”
He said, “Jeb, this sucks.”
Jeb nodded and said, “Yes, but God is good…even when it sucks.”
We didn’t know this story until a little over a year later when Gary told the story at Jeb’s funeral. He was amazed at the faith of our son and the way that, even when Jeb’s Aunt Carrie was dying, he sought to comfort him with a strength of faith that he admitted he didn’t have.
I mentioned it after the funeral and a friend said, “You should put that on a T-shirt.”
But not until after I researched what charity should receive the proceeds from the sales of the T-shirts, because I have no desire to profit from them. I searched and researched and found the perfect charity.
No one had a bigger heart for those hurting and in need than Jeb. He never met a homeless person he didn’t empty his pockets for, or hand over the leftovers in his to-go-bag, or start crying because he had no more money to give and there was still so much need. I wanted to find an organization that helped with the kind of heart for God that Jeb had, and we believe the Christian Appalachian Project is perfect.
“For over 50 years, Christian Appalachian Project has served the people of Appalachia by building hope, transforming lives, and sharing Christ’s love.”
Charity watchdogs give the Christian Appalachian Project overwhelming high ratings. We know that the money that will be donated to them will go to those in need and not into the pockets of an overpaid CEO.
I will keep none of the proceeds from the sales of these shirts. They’ll go to the printing and production of the shirts and to the Christian Appalachian Project.
They’re in pre-order now for shipment on January 15th. They come in many colors. We have adult sizes through 4XL, ladies cut XS-4XL, and youth M-L.
