Help us get a new trailer! May 01 2016

Hello friends, fans, and supporters. Late last Friday night, the MI RootsWear Jeep and trailer were both totaled while parked by an uninsured driver, while we were loading out of an event in Flint.

Due to Michigan's no-fault insurance laws, we should be able to make a claim for all the damages through the other party's insurance... but they don't have coverage. We've learned in the past week that after having our previous Jeep stolen just last October, our own insurance is only going to pay out about 60% of the value of the Jeep + trailer.



This also doesn't include all the other costs we've incurred as a result of this accident, including damage to our merchandise and equipment, cleanup costs, rental vehicles, etc. At this point we're looking at over $5000 of uncovered expenses.

As many of you know, the MI RootsWear Roadshow (our traveling setup) is the life blood of our business. We wouldn't be where we are today if we hadn't spent the last 2 1/2 years traveling all over this great state, bringing Michigan pride to everyone we meet. Unfortunately, due to this devastating recent loss, our future is in jeopardy.

We've worked hard over the last few years to create a Michigan brand that everyone can be proud of, and we couldn't have done it without your support. But now, we need your help more than ever.

We're asking for friends, family, and fans alike to come together to help us to get a new vehicle and trailer, so we can get back on the road in time for our crucial, fast-approaching summer season. There are so many great festivals and events coming up that we'd hate to have to miss, and with your help we can get there!

Donate Now @ GoFundMe.com

While we're very gratefeul if you simply want to donate, many of our reward levels are for MRW merch at or below regular price, so you can get a great deal on some new gear, and help us out at the same time!

If every one of our 8,000+ Facebook fans alone contributed just a dollar each, we'd be back on the road. Can you give $5? $10? Maybe even a little more?

Thank you for taking the time to consider our campaign, and please help us by sharing with friends and family... and of course, donating! With your help we can keep doing the work we're dedicated to: promoting pride in our great state, and its artists, musicians, small businesses, charities, and more.

As always, we truly appreciate your support!

Thank you,
-Chris K // Founder, MI RootsWear


FAQ:

Q: Don't you have insurance? Why aren't they covering it?

A: Yes we do, but they're not paying out anywhere close to what we need to get back on our feet. It's very disappointing, and we'll be looking for a new carrier, but that doesn't help now.

Q: Can't you sue the other party?

A: Yes, we can, however any legal proceedings will be long and costly and will take months - or more likely, years - to resolve. Unfortunately we're not big enough to absorb the costs in the meantime, and can't afford to wait for that resolution.

Q: Could you rent a trailer?

A: Yes, and we're already going to have to do that for our next couple events, but it's obviously not economically viable to do long-term.

Q: What if I just want to donate cash?

A: Thank you.  We really appreciate that.  You can click the link below to make a direct donation through PayPal:

We're super excited to announce that our new 2016 items are now available, and you can save big thru April 1st!  We've got some amazing new stuff for you guys!  Check them out:

Ladies' Funnel Neck Pullover

A brand new take on one of our most popular items, the funnel neck pullover features a cozy cowl collar, keeping your neck warm without that "too-tight" feeling. It's fashion forward, perfect for social gatherings or just staying cozy at home!

Ladies' Full Zip Hoodie

By popular demand, here's a zip-up for the ladies, with matching drawstring and silver zipper. It is as durable as it is soft, built to last and be comfortable through all of Michigan's seasons.

Ladies' Contrast Zip-Up Hoodie

This lightweight zip-up is one of our hottest new products! Available in multiple contrast colors with matching stitching, draw-strings, and logos, which are vibrant and eye catching.

Unisex T-Shirt Hoodie

It's the best of both worlds - a long sleeve tee with a hood!  Made of an ultra-soft tri-blend t-shirt material, it is lightweight and breathable, and perfect for those early morning and evening jogs!

Long-Sleeve T-Shirt

This 100% cotton, traditional cut long-sleeve tee is a little heavier than our regular t-shirt fabric, and the full coverage makes it perfect for working outdoors, or as a base layer under a jacket or hoodie!

Ladies V-Neck T-Shirt

One of your most frequent requests has been a v-neck tee for ladies, and here it is!  Perfect for business casual settings, this tee comes in a variety of vibrant colors, with a left chest logo.

 

PLUS! We've also added new colors in some old favorites, like our Ladies' V-Notch Hoodie, our Ladies' Funnel Neck Zip-Up, Crew Necks, and more!

Which new item is your favorite? Which color? We'd love your feedback, so just let us know!

Happy Spring!

Flint Water Crisis February 17 2016

Matt Hopper holds and comforts Nyla Hopper, age 5 of Flint, after she has her blood drawn to be tested for lead on January 26, 2016 at Eisenhower Elementary School in Flint, Michigan. (Brett Carlsen / Getty Images)

The Flint Water Crisis is one of the most serious issues to ever affect the people of Michigan on such a large scale. Over 8,000 children have been exposed to drinking water with high levels of lead, and about 5 percent test as having high levels of lead in their blood.

Lead poisoning affects the development of children's brains and nervous systems in irreversible ways. These children may experience a range of serious health problems, including kidney problems, fatigue, lethargy, depression, and slower reaction time.

Of course, one of the first responses to the crisis has been donation of water and water filters, however, even after this crisis has been resolved (which will likely take years), its effects on the residents of Flint will be immeasurable, and last for generations.

It is because of this long-term concern that MI RootsWear is proud to partner with the Flint Child Health & Development Fund. The FCHDF knows the needs of Flint children exposed to lead, particularly those most vulnerable - children ages 0-6 - are ongoing and long-term. When you make a donation to the Flint Child Health & Development Fund, you can be assured that your gift will be used for critical interventions today and well into the future.

“If there was ever a time to invest in our children, it is now. Our Flint children deserve every opportunity to be healthy and successful. The creation of this Fund will further ensure that our children are afforded the resources and interventions to overcome this population-wide exposure to lead.”
- Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, Hurley Medical Center


*Through March 31st, MI RootsWear will donate 10 or 20% of sales to the FCHDF. Every sale means a donation, and you can decide how much of your purchase to give:

Use code FLINTKIDS10 to save 10% on your purchase, and we'll donate 10% to the FCHDF

Use code FLINTKIDS20 to pay full price, and we'll donate 20% of your purchase

*** You can also make a direct donation at www.FlintKids.org

We thank you for your purchase, and your generous participation in this very important cause. For more information on the Flint Water Crisis, please check out this great article from Vox, as well as the Wikipedia page.
