Choose Love Shirts: How They Are Made

Two years ago, I spoke at Lincoln High School in Des Moines, Iowa. Afterwards, a senior approached me and asked if I had ever thought about doing t-shirts to relate to my message. Later that night, he sent me a sketch of what is now a symbol for thousands high schoolers and middle schoolers around the country of what it means to stand up against your feelings of fear and choose to love. 

A few weeks ago, I got to visit Skyler Prenosil in Iowa when I was invited back to speak at his old school. Since our first meeting, Skyler has printed well over 1,500 shirts for me and become a close friend. We spent a few days together and I was able to capture the magic of how he handprints each Choose Love shirt.
