BornFit

The Lindsey Tee is a one-of-a-kind, all-purpose shirt for everything from cycling to catching up with friends. Flattering flatlock stitching highlights your curves…mesh back panel lets you breathe. The garment is designed with more room in the mid-section and a longer length in the front and back.

“All of us have a sister, mother, friend, co-worker, grandmother, daughter or family member that has fought Breast Cancer,” says Lisa Welch, CEO and co-founder. “Show your support for those you love with our special BornFit Tee.”

BornFit believes that a strong, fit body builds a confident spirit, which, ultimately, affects each and every area of your life. Welch and Julie Hill (dynamic duo of college roommates) created BornFit, recognizing a void in the marketplace for moms who are committed to incorporating fitness into their lifestyle.

BornFit offers women a chance to exercise in clothing perfectly suited to their changing bodies. “We encourage women all of sizes to LiveFit and StayFit. Our mission at BornFit is to provide active moms with a variety of comfortable, athletic pieces that will inspire them to keep moving,” Welch says.

Gogie Girl

Gogie Girl designs two hats to benefit breast and ovarian cancer research

Gogie Girl, manufacturers of stylish sporty headwear exclusively for women, announces that they have designed two hats specifically to support breast and ovarian cancer.

Gogie Girl is offering a pink and white style from their Dottie line to bring awareness of breast cancer and a teal and white style for ovarian cancer. It is the mission of the company to give back and support non-profit organizations and not simply through publicity events.

For co-founders Vicky Waldorf and Cindy Gilmore, this is a very personal commitment. “Gogie Girl will donate a portion of the proceeds from these two hats to support the research for and families effected by these two devastating diseases,” said Waldorf. “My family has a history of ovarian cancer and I know personally the effect this terrible disease can have on a person and a family. Moreover, both Cindy and I are in our midforties and we both have a daughter. We really want to get this message out there.”

The response to these hats has been immediate and has provided a special connection with vendors and consumers. “Gogie Girl is thrilled with the interest for our cancer awareness hats,” said Waldorf. “Awareness and education are so important in fighting these illnesses. A lot of tournaments have ordered both hats to support the cause.” “We want everyone to know that this a long term commitment,” Waldorf added. “We will always have these hats available. This was a decision we made when we first started the company and we’re going to keep that promise.”

Chewylou

Definitely not your average t-shirt!
The LIVE t-shirt – Love, Imagine, Value, Embrace

Alyssa Dinowitz created the LIVE shirt in honor of her mother who is currently fighting the disease for the third time. A portion of the proceeds from t-shirt sales support the fight against breast cancer in the world via the Susan G. Komen foundation.

Her women’s t-shirt line has been gaining popularity for inspiring women with its catchy acronyms and motivational words. The line also includes: HOPE (Harmony, Optimism, Peace, Effort), FAITH (Forgive, Accept, Imagine, Trust, Hope), DREAM (Dare, Reach, Excel, Aspire, Motivate), BREATHE (Believe, Release, Expand, Align, Trust, Heal, Exhale), GRACE (Gratitude, Respect, Acceptance, Compassion, Encouragement) and many others.

Alyssa Dinowitz is also the founder of Athletes Yoga. She was initially inspired to create the line of t-shirts by her students. Alyssa expresses,”We shared our life experiences with each other: the death of a parent, cancer, divorce, the birth of babies and the challenges of facing middle age. No matter what was going on, each week they faithfully showed up for class.” She wanted to offer her students an ‘inspirational gem’ to take with them after their Yoga class and that’s when Chewylou’s concept of motivation began.

The line is filled with great pieces of clothing to wear and gifts to give. It has been extended and is now available for Men, Kids, and Dogs.

You can find them online at www.chewylou.com or www.athletesyoga.com.
