THE E1GHT | CHARCOAL
We started Panther City Hat Co as a small business to put out stylish, attractive hats and apparel. We soon realized that we wanted to do more with it and use that platform to help others in a small way. When we came up with the idea of the Mission Apparel Program, we had hopes of being able to give back to a community that has been so great to us both. We wanted to make sure that we were helping others and making a positive footprint in our society. In the first year of being open, we have successfully been able to donate over $1000 to help Animal Investigation & Response, a non-profit organization that rescues animals from horrible situations and relocates them to safer environments. The one thing we never expected, was that we would need to use the Mission Apparel Program to raise money for our own personal hardship.
It is no secret that 2020 has been a rough year all around. We are grateful for the support of our friends, family, and loyal PCHC customers who have chosen our products over the large brands. We are humbly asking you to do it again, with a mission that is very close to our hearts. Since getting married in March of 2019, we have been dreaming of the day we would be able to start a family of our own. Raising little PCHC VP’s has always been a part of our vision for the future! But in October of this year, Deanna was diagnosed with Tubal Factor Infertility, shattering our dreams of conceiving children naturally. This means that our only pathway to pregnancy is through in-vitro fertilization, which comes with a hefty price tag. In Texas, most insurance companies (including ours) do not cover fertility related procedures, so we are having to pay out of pocket and up-front for all expenses.
In an effort to curb some of the cost, we are offering our customers a way to own an awesome hat and/or t-shirt that will also help us with our journey and dream of expanding the PCHC family. We are starting with a shirt and will be releasing a hat soon after.
About the shirt:
E1GHT = 1 in 8
One out of every 8 couples will experience infertility in some way, shape, or form. Wearing this shirt shows your support for those who more than likely suffer in silence. Infertility tends to be something that people keep to themselves about because it can be a very personal and painful journey, at times. We want to shed light on this subject and bring about conversations that help couples feel less alone and provide some encouragement that we are all in this together.
Starting now, these shirts will be available for pre-order on the website until December 18th. We want to make sure that we order the correct shirt sizes for all who would like to participate and will begin production of these shirts the following week. All shirts and hats come with free shipping using the code PANTHERGIVESBACK. All proceeds from each shirt or hat sold will go directly to our IVF fund. If you would like additional information or updates on our journey, feel free to follow us on our Facebook page, Making Little Lesters.
