Made up of members of southern Colorado's design and marketing community, got its start after the horrific Waldo Canyon Fire in 2012.

"Last summer, we started the project with the goal of selling a few hundred shirts. We couldn't believe how strongly our community and people from around the entire world supported this effort and we ended up exceeding $500K in sales," said a spokesperson for the group. "We certainly wouldn't have hoped for mother nature to give us another opportunity to sell these t-shirts, but she did in the form of the Black Forest Fire and so we came up with a new design and re-introduced some of the old ones. It is our hope we can total $1,500,000 in sales as our community needs as much support as possible."
