Created to remember Cara Loughran, a victim of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting, the apparel is being sold as a lasting tribute to Cara to both promote and raise funds for a Scholarship in here name. This design is the second one created to honor her memory and keep Cara dancing on.

Last year, maybe the year before, I don’t recall exactly, it was coming to be October and all the Breast Cancer Awareness fundraisers started. You know, the ones with the names that use alternate terms for breasts in the title. Almost immediately, I thought ‘we should do something with Hornpipes for Hooters’, but I couldn’t figure out what. That play on words grew, and I added ‘Trebles for Tatas’ and ‘Jigs for Jugs’ but I still could not think what to do.
My family has been impacted by breast cancer, and I wanted to try to not let another year slip by, so this year, I had an idea. How about I make an ‘Irish Dance Against Breast Cancer’ shirt? I could put the slogans on the shirt, sell the shirts, and give most of the profit to an organization researching cures for breast cancer. I know this might not be appropriate for some dancers, especially younger ones, but what about older dancers, and what about the moms? And while I am at it, what about male dancers and dance dads who want to help find a cure?
My thought is that I would offer classic, contour crew neck, contour v neck and concert tanks, all for $17.50. I have worked with my printer to be able to offer them at lower prices then I usually sell for. Unfortunately there would be some upsize charges at 2XL and above, that is from the tshirt supplier, not my idea. The cost does not include shipping.
$7.50 of each shirt sold will go to a breast cancer research charity. Exact charity TBD. There is little to no profit for IDTCO, this is about the charity.
The classic tee is suitable for males. All tees ‘should’ be the same color as they are from sister companies.
I can sell in bulk to an October feiseanna at reduced prices, but I want them to use any profit to support the fight against breast cancer. If they buy for giveaways, that is different.
I would like to make this a yearly event, and do a similar tshirt each year, giving profit to breast cancer research.
I have not posted product online, as I have only floated this idea by a few people, but it was generally well received. Based on feedback from this post, I expect to add product in the next few days. This will be only one or two print runs, to be delivered in the next few weeks, in time or October. Donation will be made when all sales for the product have completed, but should be by the end of October.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, and when (if) this moves forward, I hope you will support the cause.
The I Do Not Dance With My Feet I Dance With My Heart line is a remake of a line from 2017 movie. The original, darker-themed line is from ‘The Dark Tower’ trailer, and although overtly negative, it spoke of being good at something basically because of passion. I understand that the line is not said in the movie like it is shown in the trailer. Either way, I think it is much better my way.

Once again, one snarky comment on Facebook lead to another, which spawned an idea, which grew and before you knew it, one of the coolest designs to date. The ‘One Reel To Rule Them All’ design is now available for purchase, and not on just black. See all the items here.
After the release of the Defying Gravity Irish Dancer tshirt, several people requested a Hamilton based design. Not Throwing Away My Shot was an obvious choice, and I stumbled across I Am The One Thing In Life I Can Control as I was researching the show. So, a twofer…

The Defying Gravity Irish Dancer tshirt came to be when a dance mom asked if I had any Broadway themed designs and offered some suggestions. One play in particular had references that screamed Irish dance, and this shirt was born.
