WHY A REMEMBER EVERYONE DEPLOYED DESIGN CONTEST?

We want to connect the 99% of Americans who do not serve in the military with the 1% who do.

November 5 to 11 is Boot Week – the week preceding Veterans Day in which Boot Campaign encourages all patriots to wear boots everywhere.

We want to have a new R.E.D shirt option for Friday, November 9.

Proceeds from t-shirt sales will benefit Boot Campaign’s mission-focused programs that are dedicated to inspiring the inner patriot in all Americans and providing life-changing programs to veterans and military families nationwide.

Since at least 2005, wearing something red on Fridays has symbolized a grassroots, nationwide effort to honor servicemen and women currently serving away from home. Boot Campaign is looking forward to tapping patriotic minds to keep this visual show of support growing.

R.E.D. INSPIRATION

If you’re looking for inspiration or to learn more about who is wearing red on Fridays and how you can get more people to do it too, check out these major companies where the culture inspired employee driven initiatives: Southwest Airlines and Raytheon. Also, Mansfield University, a small public university on Pennsylvania garnered national recognition for its RED Friday campaign and Oklahoma University’s veterans’ association webpage encourages students to wear red each Friday.

Here are our current R.E.D. shirts offerings.
