There are two T-shirt options for the Hampton Roads Morning of Hope.
1. A Hampton Roads Morning of Hope t-Shirt with the event logo on the front and the listing of the sponsors on the back. This t-shirt is a gift when you’ve raised $125 or more to donate to the Hampton Roads Survivors Of Suicide Support Group Inc. There is no need to apply for this shirt as you can pick it up in the t-shirt tent after you check-in at the Registration Shelter upon entering the event. These t-shirts must be picked up only on the morning of our event. If you aren't able to pick up your shirt then you may want to send someone in your place to pick it up. This is also when you can turn in any money that you may have raised.
During the Morning there will also be a limited number of t-shirts available when you make a donation at the t-shirt tent.
2. The other t-shirt option is one designed just for us by Susan Romero, a graphic designer. We’re excited about the beautiful crane design on it.
The absolute deadline for placing orders is August 22, 2018.
The crane has been chosen to represent our S.O.S. Hampton Roads Survivors Of Suicide Support Group Inc. as it, over the centuries, has become a symbol of healing, happiness and hope. In Japan people believed this ancient bird lived for a 1,000 years. Legend has it that if you fold 1000 paper cranes, your prayers will be answered. Volunteers of this event have folded this many with our prayers for peace and hope: not only for those who presently suffer from depression but also for those who have died by suicide. These cranes will be strung together to form a curtain of cranes to mark the starting point for those who may choose to walk through it. (For more about the crane, see the page “Legend of the Crane.”)
This is the 2018 Crane T-shirt
If you’d like to order one, they are $13 for each or $25 for two. For 2XL or 3XL, please add an additional $4 to the price.
Past participants have expressed an interest in personalizing their crane T-shirts. Therefore, we’ve added a new option. For families, groups, businesses, etc. you can have words printed on your sleeve; you can have the print on two lines. Each line can hold a maximum of 18 letters (a space counts as a letter). Please, look at our examples.
THERE IS A MINIMUM OF 12 T-SHIRTS ORDERED TO BE ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF PERSONALIZING YOUR T-SHIRTS.
You can use these lines to remember a loved one as shown or to list a sponsor as i.e. "Supported by the Portsmouth YMCA." Please note that you must add $1 to the Crane shirt pricing quoted above for each personalized shirt noting there is a minimum of 12 shirts. To take advantage of this option, all of those ordered must have the same words printed on them. Families and groups have been excited about this option.
