We're the Moore family - Ben (Dad), Jackie (Mom), Jordyn (Big Sister), and Hudson (Little Brother). Jordyn has autism. Like many parents of children with disabilities, we (her parents - Ben and Jackie) worried about what would happen when she aged out of school because the opportunities for adults with disabilities are limited.
In 2018 we shifted our focus from what was not available to creating something for her. In June 2018, Jordyn's Summer Shirt Project was created in our basement. We designed a shirt with the simple but powerful words: Be Kind to Everyone. Our goal was to sell 40 shirts to family and friends that summer with the purpose of teaching Jordyn job skills.
Fast forward to today and Jordyn now independently rolls shirts, adds wristbands, and signs/stamps thank you cards. Be Kind to Everyone tees have been sold in all 50 states, and Jordyn has been featured on CBS News, 11 Alive, Fox 5 Atlanta, 94.9 The Bull, Forsyth County News, VoyageATL, Love What Matters, and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
What started as a summer project has now turned into a family business that Jordyn is thriving in. In January 2022, we moved our shirt shop into a 5500 square feet warehouse in Cumming, Georgia.
Thank you for following our story, buying our shirts, and helping make Jordyn's dreams come true.
Love - Jackie, Ben, Jordyn Hudson, and Max (our dog)
