The Colorado Springs pupil sells t-shirts to advertise the usage of masks and lift cash for the grocery financial institution
REGINA, Colorado (KRDO) – He started out with the aim of getting a message across to encourage people to wear masks, but Anthony Pedersen raised enough money to also raise a $ 500 donation to a Colorado food bank Springs to afford.
Pedersen is a student at the Skills Academy Day Program and has taken on a nonprofit project that has t-shirts that say, “If you wear a mask, we can beat this thing!”
Pedersen spent a few months designing and marketing the t-shirt before selling it. On Monday, he was able to donate a portion of the proceeds he had collected to the Care and Share Food Bank in Colorado Springs.
He even sent his shirts to several prominent leaders such as Governor Jared Polis and even President Donald Trump in hopes that the COVID-19 prevention message will go viral.
