Orders for the new 2013 Crane T-shirts can be taken now using the following form. Thank you for your interest.
For our 2013 Walk, there are two T-shirt options for the Out of the Darkness Community Walk. The first is the AFSP T-Shirt, which has the Walk logo on the front and the listing of the sponsors on the back. This T-Shirt is a gift when you’ve raised $150 or more to donate to AFSP. There is no need to apply for this as you can pick it up when you sign-in at the Walk. This is when you can turn in any money that you may raise.
There is another T-Shirt option – one designed just for our Walk by Susan Romero. We’re excited about the beautiful crane graphics on it.
The crane has been chosen to represent our S.O.S. Out of the Darkness Community Walk 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 Members of he S.O.S. Group have folded this many with our prayers for peace - - 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 to mark the starting point of the Walk. (For more about the crane, see the Page “Legend of the Crane.”)
Each year our crane T-shirt has a different color scheme. The 2013 T-shirt is pictured below:
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.
The absolute deadline for placing this order is August 19th; your order and payment must be received no later than this date. Thank You.
Participants of the Walk 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. We know this will mean a lot for many. There’s an additional $1.00 charge for each T-shirt with print on the sleeve.
