-- U.S. of Awesome (www.usofawesome.com)
is a celebration of America and all the people, places and ideas that make the United States awesome.They believe that the American spirit is alive and well and the U.S. of Awesome founders aim to kindle its flames while along the way, refreshing patriotism and spreading optimism. All the shirts are screen-printed manually by local artists and all products are made here, in the United States of America. U.S. of Awesome partners with and promotes artists from across the nation. In addition, they do their best to ensure that everything they use to get their goods into their customers’ mitts is American... from the shipping materials to the pencils on their desks and even the drinks in their fridge.
U.S. of Awesome is committed to taking action and inspiring others to do the same to make this an even better country. For every shirt sold online, they donate $1 towards a cause that remedies things that are, well, not so awesome. At checkout, customers play an active role in the "vote" by choosing where the donations are directed. Current charitable support is focused on Educating America, Feeding America or Preserving America.
U.S. of Awesome was founded by American-born Caroline Lubbers and Vasili Gerogiannis, a new American citizen from Dutch and Greek origins. They each bring a unique perspective to what it means to be an American but each have great pride in their country and value the American experience.
