Josh contacted us about making a SAYiWON’T shirt to raise awareness for lupus. He wrote: “I was diagnosed with SLE five years ago when I was 18 and it has proven to be the biggest battle I have ever faced. The SAYiWON'T creed has been an inspiration to me to fight an illness that stumps my doctors most of the time. Lupus is an autoimmune disease where myimmune system confuses my organs and joints as something that is bad, so my body attacks itself. There is no known cure, and the fatigue and pain are constant. The SAYiWON'T creed motivates me daily and is a reminder that no matter how hard it gets, I will beat it. I think it would be great to have shirts that bring awareness to the disease and could raise funds for the Lupus Foundation of America. Thank you for your time and for creating a brand that inspires me daily.” 

Josh helped design the SAYiWON’T BEAT LUPUS Challenge Tee (pictured) which is used to help spread the word about lupus awareness. When asked to describe himself in one word, Josh replied “optimistic”. SAY i WON’T!
