Florence struck a mighty blow to the entire Carolina coast, including Wilmington, NC. And since that place is literally home to my wife’s family, we feel called to respond in the way we know best. We drew up this pennant based on the City of Wilmington flag. That flag features a beehive of unspecified origin, and the word Persevere. Which seems damn fitting for a region that is going to go through some hard times for the next little bit. We are also going to donate $15 from the sale of every pennant to the Food Bank of Eastern & Central North Carolina (@foodbankcenc) to help them in their efforts to bring a little normalcy to a place we hold near & dear to our hearts.
"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping. To this day, especially in times of disaster, I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers -- so many caring people in this world." - Mr. Rogers #letterboardfridays #hurricaneflorence
