I AM MIDLAND SHIPPING/PICKUP UPDATE !!!!
Friends, Thank you so much for your patience 🙏
Honestly, this update is way past due, we are sorry about that. When the floods happened it had an immediate and direct impact on ourselves, and our staff. Our shop was out of power and we had to leave to help others on the lakes and their houses. The week before and the same week the floods happened some health things popped up unexpectedly with staff that caused us to be even more short staffed than we were. Did I mention we were dealing with 4 times the amount of work we normally have to deal with? And this, on top of government orders disallowing us from starting production on time like we had hoped.
It was just too much for us and it felt like it was happening all at once, and the way we chose to deal with it was to just bear our heads down and plow through it. So many were emailing us asking about their shirts because they are excited, and at no fault of theirs, it just stressed us all out. The stress motivated us to work even harder. We went to work early and stayed late for weeks, as many people as were able. The past 2 weeks we had teams of amazing volunteers step up and step in to fill the gaps and help us to pack the shipments. About 20 people in total, in addition to our staff.
We are excited to announce we are almost done with everything 😭😭😭. We will be done by Friday this week!
NEXT WEEK: June 8-12 We are shipping all of the packages. We are also inviting businesses and organizations to come to our shop to pick up your goods, so that you can pick them up from their establishments. We will be emailing everyone about this to give them updates.
I AM MIDLAND Phase 2 !!!! Something new is coming! Our city needs a jumpstart now more than ever. Excuse my cliché, but it's so true. We have a plan to provide help to our city in a more fun, easier AND FASTER way than the first time. Trying to step up our game a little ;)
You'll read all about it in the packages you are receiving ;)
Stay tuned! And we'll share more when we start releasing everything into the world!
We love you all ❤️ And we are excited to see you soon.
