When kids work hard to help others, they deserve credit. In a world full of bad news and depressing headlines, it's always good to see someone working hard so others can enjoy the benefits.
Rachel Lindsey, a 20 year-old student at BG Tech, said she got tired of hearing about violence against police, tired of hearing complaints about the police, and decided to take action instead of complaining herself.
She used her skills in designing Tshirts, which can be seen on her Facebook Page (The Krafty Kentuckian) and designed her own T's in support of police and law enforcement everywhere.
Above: Two different T Shirt designs by Rachel Lindsey that went to support Edmonson County school supplies.
"With all the shootings going on against police I just thought I needed to do something to show support, to give back," she said. "I didn't think it was right to keep the proceeds, so me and my family took the money and bought school supplies and donated them to the Youth Service Center."
It's not like they only bought a couple of pens and a Trapper Keeper, either...(man, what I'd give for an A-Team Trapper Keeper..) The proceeds from Rachel's T shirt sales were a whopping $500. That equaled out to be an additional truck load of supplies on top of the three vehicles that local school personnel unloaded earlier today.
So, thank you, Rachel. You helped support two wonderful causes that will never have too much support. You can find out more about Rachel's T shirts and other clothing items by visiting her personal Facebook Page: click HERE.
Rachel plans on graduating this spring from Bowling Green Tech with an associates degree in science and hopes to become a pharmacy technician.
