Today Snarky Cancer turns 3 months old! WOW! What a ride it's been. I must say the learning curve has been STEEP considering we knew NOTHING about design, screen printing or ecommerce beforehand. Hell we still don't know a lot about those things, but I'm pretty proud of what we've done so far:
We have SO MUCH more to learn! SEO, Digital Marketing, Design, different screen printing techniques....but we are excited to take on these endeavors. Action and Patience are my words of 2018. It will take a lot of both to get us to where we want to be, but the belief and vision are clear in our hearts and minds.
As you know, we are committed to giving 10% of our retail sales to cancer charities. Our first recipient is Living LFS (www.LivingLFS.org). For our first two months we sold $992 in shirts. (Yeah, that's SOLD, not MADE...so for those of you thinking a tee shirt biz is a get rich quick thing...think again!). That's $99.20 that we will donate to Living LFS! YAY! We have decided to keep Living LFS as the recipient through the month of January since the majority of our online sales have come from members of the Li Fraumeni Syndrome community and this is our way of saying THANK YOU! YOU ROCK!!!
Keep an eye out for more designs, more snark, more giving and lots of love and humor in the next few weeks! If you have designs, colors, shirts styles you would like to see, please reach out to us! We LOVE customer input and feedback. And we're not just saying that. We do. We can't wait to have you grow with us!

This morning I opened up our business email as usual. One of our t-shirt fundraisers had just closed and the recipient emailed me her family t-shirt sizes and her address for us to send her check. She closed her email with this:
"Thank you for all of your support. Just to see the people supporting us is breathtaking”
Instant tears in my eyes. And the good kind.
