Rocking Cactus Designs
In my heart I felt compelled to start producing t-shirts to promote wearing red on Friday. I feel an urgency to help spread awareness of the sacrifices of military families. I started my business, Rocking Cactus Designs, and have created shirts that combine military pride with faith driven support utilizing the Red Shirt Friday theme. I have driven town to town around Oklahoma to promote this cause. Each of my shirts use a Scripture verse to communicate our faith and support. I’m amazed at how my effort is being received. Schools and businesses are having me put their logos on the sleeve and they are encouraging the students and employees to wear Red on Friday. I am blessed to have received 24 proclamations in Oklahoma towns and counties to make Fridays wear red day in support of our troops.
My involvement in this cause has taken off beyond my wildest dreams. I am continuing to seek God for guidance as I follow His plan for me. As a way to give back, I am giving 10% of my revenues to the local Blue Star Mom’s organizations where my shirts are sold.
Our Blue Star Mom’s have sacrificed so much, and their efforts to send packages to our troops brings a little bit of home and brightens the day of our heroes so far away. To a Marine Mom, that is a huge comfort that others show care and support for my son. To date I have been able to donate $2,000 to Blue Star Mom’s.
