Announcement   Welcome to my shop! Here you will find my signature collection of "Love. Always™" apparel I designed to assist different charities in making a positive impact in the lives of those in need! I donate a generous percentage of my profits to different causes and organizations where the money will definitely help those in need.

Off Center is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit arts organization which believes art-making is central to community building.

Off Center is an "Art Hive", one of several interactive community spaces throughout the U.S. that welcomes everyone as an artist. It is open to all community members, especially individuals living at the lowest incomes or marginalized due to age, mental health issues, physical disability, immigration dislocation, and other complex social challenges.
I started this grassroots movement in 2014 to spread love to our brothers and sisters, and raise awareness to different local charities and causes. The bold message LOVE. ALWAYS. - Is a statement that will resonate with each person wearing a shirt, or looking at someone walking by with their "Love. Always." shirt on!

About

Wear the Love. Spread the Love.Be the Love. Always.

I started the Love. Always. grassroots movement in 2014 to spread love to our brothers and sisters, and to raise awareness to different local charities and causes. The bold message : LOVE. ALWAYS. - Is a statement that will resonate with each person seen wearing a shirt or carrying a tote bag! It reminds us that we do, indeed, need to LOVE. ALWAYS.

I designed the concept, and the cursive font is my actual handwriting. Backwoods Print and Design, a local, family owned printing company, screen prints the design on a variety of shirts for me. This way, I am able to incorporate reciprocity in supporting small and local businesses.

I donate at least 20 % of my profits from the sale of the Love. Always.™ apparel collection to charity. It is important to me to help out charities that are close to my community and really move my heart. Many of the organizations I donate to are smaller, local, lesser known charities that help people on a more personal level. Sometimes the money is donated to an individual or family that needs it. I choose a different cause to donate to for campaigns lasting 1-4 months.

Here are some of the organizations I have donated to:

Change to Humanity - www.changetohumanity.org
The GA Chapter of the ALS Association - www.alsa.org
Never Alone Ministries - www.neveralone.org
Andrew Lasher's HelpHOPELive Fund : https://helphopelive.org/campaign/9074
Kate's Club - www.katesclub.org
Water Protector Legal Collective - http://waterprotectorlegal.org/
Off Center Community Arts Project - www.offcenterarts.org

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting this movement to spread love and raise awareness.

Wear the Love. Spread the Love. BE the Love. Always.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

I have a size chart pictured for most listings, which should ensure the right selection of proper fit. If you are unsure if an item will fit, please send me a convo, and I will do my best to help you.

Care instructions

Care instructions vary for each garment. Please refer to the instructions on the garment tag for the preferred and recommended care for your item.
I personally recommend always washing your garment inside out, in cold water. To further preserve the integrity of your garment, hang to dry rather than drying in the dryer :)
