Recently, I was pleasantly surprised to find a very unique new bow tie in my mailbox!
Someone sent me the above bow tie. It is by far the most unique bow tie have. Also, intentionally or not, it was sent anonymously. I could not glean who it was from. The word “KIDS” and the “Scales of Justice” certainly indicate it was intentional and someone who knew me and TLF’s passion for helping families in Mississippi. So, thank you.
BeGreat Bow Ties has a meaningful and moving backstory.
The company was inspired by Tyrelle D Shaw, who committed suicide in June 2015. Tyrelle was the original creator of the unque bow tie idea…
Some 44,965 Americans commit suicide every year. This alarmingly high number shows the need for change and awareness of this problem. Suicide is an issue that’s plagued our communities for far too long and unfortunately it’s on the rise.
At BeGreat bow ties, we want to show that every life matters and there are resources available that can help.
We donate 5% of every purchase to Elevation Society, Their mission is focused on reducing suicide, bullying, and depression by uniting humans to collectively solve issues and show every individual their life is worth fighting for.
I am grateful for my BeGreat Bow Tie and will wear it proudly.
