Awesome T-shirts for Michiganders from The Mitten State
While I'm officially labeled as a Colorado-transplant, my roots will always be in the Mitten State. Luckily for me, the company — The Mitten State — is making some pretty awesome T-shirts and stickers to help me stay connected to Michigan.
I learned about The Mitten State around Christmas time when my mom bought me their car decal, which is an outline of the mitten and U.P. and then you place a dot wherever you grew up. I still need to put that on my car — the laziness stops this week!
For Erin's and my Hillsdale friends not from Michigan, make sure to check out the site (You can click here) and see some retro T-shirts of GLIAC college teams. Unfortunately, no Hillsdale shirts at this time. Maybe they could make a shirt remembering that Refrigerator Bowl victory in the mid-1950s?
The company is not only out there trying to make money, either. Every purchase you make sees a portion of the proceeds go to local Michigan charities, including the Conductive Learning Center, Food Bank Council of Michigan and the Michigan Humane Society.
And finally — We're happy to announce that we're an affiliate for the Mitten State now. You'll see a button in our right sidebar that you can click that takes you to their site to see their latest products.
What's your favorite shirt? Let us know! ...maybe a giveaway is in order!
I have to give a shout out to a Hillsdale friend is who is trying to help preserve the Great Lakes by selling these awesome decals. It's a good cause started by a great guy — check it out.
