I AM MIDLAND SHIPPING/PICKUP UPDATE !!!!

Friends, Thank you so much for your patience ๐Ÿ™

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 ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ. 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 clichรฉ, 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 โค๏ธ And we are excited to see you soon.

This is the I AM MIDLAND mentality! Coming together for the greater good of the community! Midland County will rebuild and move forward!

#IAmMidland #WeAreMidland #MidlandStrong

Red Threads is proud to be a part of the Midland community. Our citizens are strong as individuals, but we are even stronger when we unite together.

Part of this weekend, some Red Threads employees helped pick up donations and supplies, to deliver them throughout the community.

We had to take a break from shirts for a minute to build dams. Thank you to all the helpers out there who are making a real difference during this time. Our prayers are with you all ๐Ÿ™ if you need assistance just ask! We believe there are many out there just waiting for the call. #WEAREMIDLAND

05/11/2020

For t-shirt campaigns such as this to be as successful as possible and share as much funds as possible from the t-shirt sales Red Threads needed to partner with a non-profit and New Life Vineyard Church stepped up! The church does not receive any finances through the campaign. They are simply acting as a non-profit entity to help with accepting and distributing the funds.

Because of this, New Life Vineyard Church is the name on the store account and therefore will be the name on your credit card statement for any I AM MIDLAND or RED THREADS purchases you have made. We wanted to share this information so that it will hopefully answer any questions about the name on the statements.

Thank you all for being amazing and participating in the I AM MIDLAND campaign!

I AM MIDLAND is more than just t shirts. Itโ€™s more than fundraising. Itโ€™s about loving your city and itโ€™s amazing people, and supporting them at every opportunity. Itโ€™s about community. Today we love the Midland Area Farmers Market. My wife and I had the pleasure to sit in the car for an hour and set aside our busy lives to sit and be present with each other. We played Spotify tag back and forth with our favorite songs. We saw our friends, we bought our favorite products, and had a wonderful time. Normally, dogs arenโ€™t allowed at the Farmers market, but now for a limited time, you can bring your pets! Chili loved every minute, sticking her head out the window and greeting everyone.

We love this city, and itโ€™s people. And we are very excited to see you all again and shake your hands and give you hugs in person. Today is a great day. Go outside and get some โ˜€๏ธ โ˜€๏ธ โ˜€๏ธ.

Now I'm sure all of you are wondering.... So what's next? We're planning some exciting next steps for chapter 2 of I AM MIDLAND. It's going to be very different, fun, and exciting for everyone!

While we prepare for Chapter 2, Red Threads is asking for your help. Our business was affected negatively just like everyone else's. Running the I AM MIDLAND campaign has been great, but to be honest, Red Threads dipped as low as we could financially to give as much money back to our community. Any money we did make, we reinvested into the campaign with staffing, videos, etc. to make this campaign as big as possible to impact all who needed funding help. And we were more than honored to do so.

Now we need your help. For the first time in 7 years, for the next 7 days, you can buy Red Threads merch. 10% of the profits will be given back to a midland business or organization YOU CHOOSE at the checkout process!

If we could just ask you ONE THING. Would you please go to --> stores.inksoft.com/redthreads and look at the amazing, premium items we have up there?

If we could ask you TWO THINGS. Would you buy some stuff? ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

We love you all, and we're excited for how this story will continue to unfold !!!

Hello all wonderful citizens of Midland! I am the office manager of Red Threads and wife to Mr. Red Threads himself. We've received a lot of questions in regards to how charges are showing up on your bank statement.

New Life Vineyard Church has graciously partnered with us during this campaign. They are a huge supporter of the Midland community and are helping us distribute funds. All funds will go through them and be distributed by them as they are a non-profit. Your charge will most likely show up as "New Life Vineyard" If it says "reoccurring" don't be alarmed. It still should be a one-time fee but as always if you notice anything out of the ordinary please let us know.

This is the LAST day of the campaign! THANK YOU for supporting your community - YOU ALL MADE IT HAPPEN!

-Abbi

We wanted to clear up any questions people have about the shipping and distribution of the I AM MIDLAND t shirts and products.

This has been clearly stated on our online store from the beginning, but we want to reiterate it.

We havenโ€™t been able to be fully operational because of the stay at home order. We are in the process of preparing everything as best we can but because of the restrictions on businesses there will be delays.

We started this project because businesses were ordered to shut down by the governor. Ours included. Please extend grace as we are facing the same difficulties as every other business out there affected by this crisis.

We will be printing and shipping the shirts as soon as we are able. We will be hustling as hard as we can, trust us.

๐ŸŸข If you chose to have your shirt shipped to you, it will be shipped to you within a few weeks.

๐Ÿ”ต if you supported a business or organization and chose pickup at location, you will be able to pick your shirts up FROM THAT BUSINESS OR ORGANIZATION as soon as the governor lets us resume our businesses As usual again.

๐ŸŸฃIf you supported the city of Midland fund or Red Threads and chose pickup at location you can pick up at Red Threads as soon as the governor allows us to open up to the public.

We will be posting on here when any new information is available.

Remember, you all participated in this not because you needed a new t shirt, but because you wanted to help those that you love. We will make sure every penny, every shirt, every act of kindness goes where it belongs as soon as we are able.

Thank you for your patience during this time, we need it too โค๏ธ

Beautiful, encouraging message. Together we will win this battle. Bob Robert Gallant
I am ordering T-shirts and noticed that Firehouse Subs is not listed as a business to support. How can I get them added? It is a small business owned by local Midland residents.
Thank you Red Threads for your generosity and leadership in developing I AM MIDLAND. We are standing with you in support of not only our own small business Divine Beauty Studio, but all of the other beauty salons/barber shops and many small businesses shut down at this time. Many blessings to you! Thank you Midland for giving so generously to all of us.
Thanks for being the helpers! -Matt & Jen
