Broken Arrow Prints Cool T-Shirts For Fundraising Events
The photo’s shown are from Amanda the Panda’s Annual Panda Bar Ride held last Saturday, October 1. Broken Arrow T-Shirt Printing and Embroidery is proud to print the T-Shirts for this important fundraising event.
“The Panda Bar Ride is an annual bike ride event that raises awareness and funds for the nonprofit Amanda the Panda,” Blair continues. “All proceeds go toward programming support for Amanda the Panda—programs that include yearlong, no-cost grief services for children, families. and adults that have experienced the death of a loved one. The PBR event draws a fun crowd that believes in the Amanda the Panda mission!”
Broken Arrow Believes in Amanda the Panda, too. Grieving children are extremely likely to develop behavior disorders, substance abuse, or depression resulting in suicide. Startlingly, ninety percent of children and teens will face the death of sibling, relative, or close friend before they finish high school. Bereavement support makes a significant and positive impact. When bereavement support is available, grieving children are 20 times less likely to develop behavior disorders, 10 times less likely to develop substance abuse issues, and 5 times less likely to commit suicide.
Thank you, Amanda the Panda for all that you do for our community!
