Tee Shirt Fundraiser Campaign Begins Today

We begin this year’s tee shirt fundraising campaign here on this website and it ends April 15, 2022. There are some differences between previous fundraisers and this one.

New Vendor

Because they screwed us over in the past, the most notable difference is that we are no longer using Custom Ink to host our fundraiser which is bad news for them since we’ve used them since 2018 when L.B. & Shelly Keller created our first-ever fundraiser shirts. What that means for us is that it becomes a lot more challenging to create a fundraiser.

The good news is that we know of another shirt company and although Jarheads Threads is a little slow getting off the ground, we are buying our shirts through them. Since it’s a low-volume start-up company, the fundraiser profits may not be as lucrative as they were in previous years with Custom Ink (high-volume) but we are supporting some of our own.

Combine that with the new IRS rules for PayPal and other payment gateways, all of us need to pay special attention to how we pay for everything relating to our reunions. When you send your payments, always make sure you “Send to Friends or Family”, otherwise it will create a tax burden for me at tax time.

Larger Selection

On a positive note, there is a broader selection of merchandise for you to choose from. We still have short sleeve tees, long sleeve tees, and crewneck sweatshirts for sale.

With regards to the short sleeve shirts, you now have 3 options to choose from: regular, premium, and dry-fit.

  1. The regular tees are 100% cotton, thicker, and resembles what was offered in last year’s fundraiser.
  2. The premium tees are a 50/50 cotton/poly blend and very similar to what Jarheads Threads gave away last year.
  3. You asked, we listened. Dry-fit shirts were added to the mix which is made from 100% Micro Poly Interlock 5-star fabric from A4.

Also new to 2022 is a ¾ sleeve raglan baseball tee (pictured below), something we’ve not yet seen before in our fundraiser selections.

Shipping Costs, Ship Dates, & Shirt Prices


Another difficult aspect regarding our new fundraising process is shipping your order. For those of you that want your fundraiser shirts shipped to you, it will cost more than it did in years past. This is also due to low volume shipping that now falls on my shoulders and unfortunately I don’t get shipping discounts like the big volume stores.

The best thing you can do is to just pick them up at the reunion but if you absolutely want them shipped, I’ll make it happen for you. I expect to begin shipping orders beginning May 23rd and your shirts should arrive by the end of May. Otherwise, I’ll hand deliver them to the reunion in Virginia Beach.


Starting prices for the shirts remain relatively the same as in years past with a mark-up for sizes 2XL and larger. The markup is $2 for 2XL and $3 for 3XL. If you need something bigger, let me know.

Prices for shirts start at:
$20 Standard short sleeve
$25 Premium short sleeve
$30 Long sleeve
$35 Sweatshirts
NEW: $30 Raglan & Dry-fit

Payment Info

You are not required to pay when you place your order! In fact, the only option you’ll have is “Pay Later”. This is done to avoid any credit card and/or payment fees that would be incurred if I turned on any sort of payments on this website.

You will also have the ability to add an additional donation to your shopping cart if you’re feeling extra generous.

When you place your order, you will know what your order total is. You should also receive an email with your order summary. It will be up to you to make your payment either through PayPal’s Friends and Family program or Venmo. If there are any other options that you have in mind, let me know.

Payments for shirts are due no later than April 30, 2022. Not only is this due date for fundraiser shirts but for ALL payments, including the remaining balance due for reunion fees.

Order Window

If you’ve made it this far and read everything, you probably need to wipe, flush, and get back to work. This fundraiser campaign ends April 15, 2022!

As always, hit me up if you have any questions.
