THE STORY:

Aloha Everyone, My name is Patty Holbrook , creator and owner of Color Your Own Shirts here in Kihei on Maui, Hawaii I seriously revamped my business a few yrs. ago and now want to share it with our Shelter kids again. I used to wrap a shirt as a gift to all the kids at our Homeless Shelters for each of their birthdays. The staff at the Shelters in Kahului and Lahaina said I have no idea of the impact it made on the kids. A shirt of their very own packaged with a Maui sealife design of dolphins, turtles, surfing turtles, whales etc. along with non-toxic fabric markers that they coulduse to color, sign and be very proud to wear. Also,the backs are blank so they could add their own design there. Really, I was giving them a two- for- one shirt. In fact the kids could hardly wait for their birthday because they know they knewthey would get one just like their friends. Now of course I could just give hundreds of shirts to the Shelter and have the staff pass them out. But I wanted my shirts to be a Special birthday present  gift wrapped with their name on it. Like to" Maile from Auntie Patty". . But I NEED YOUR HELP.. I can no longer afford to do this by myself. Sad to say there are just to many children. After talking to my many friends about my idea my friend Diane asked if she and her organization" Maui Friends of The Library " an organizations that subsidsides the eight county libraries wih funds collected from the sale of used books. " Oh yea,you sure can.. the kids will be estatic" Now they will get both a shirt ,fabric markers and a book from the Maui Friends of the Library to boot . Talk about making kids happy on their special day! Gift wrapped with their name on it from their Aunties & Uncles...Can't you just see those SMILING FACES. Ok, who wants to be a Auntie or Uncle for our Maui County kids (Maui, Lanai, & Molokai) ?? How about you?? No donation is to small or too large. This is just my first step. Eventually I want to share these gifts to all children in need here in Maui County and eventually branch out to all the islands. I'd like to start giving on Feb. 1st so we have 10 days.. Let's MAKE IT HAPPEN. If you have any questions feel free to contact me at my website. www.coloryourownshirts.com Thanks , Patty Holbrook/Owner www.coloryourownshirts.com info@coloryourownshirts.com
