To Empower | The Green T-shirt project
It was a huge undertaking to take on this green t-shirt project for the San Juan School District. They needed 560 shirts! And none of the funds came from tax payer dollars. Is that amazing or what? Ron Nielson and his assistant, Eva Ewald, went to work to make this happen. They spent countless hours on the phone getting donations from local businesses to bring this vision to life.
I have to say that it is a great feeling to be at one of the schools on a Friday and see all of the teachers and staff wearing their green shirts. I also love that on the back it says “Why?” And then it says “To Empower” And then it says the same thing in Navajo and Ute. Such a great idea to bring the entire staff together to strive for one thing.
