Entering into CMA Fest with six consecutive number one songs, Thomas Rhett has a lot to celebrate. His current #1 song “T-Shirt” had the fans at Fan Fair X lined up just trying to catch a glimpse of the second generation country star.
Releasing “T-Shirt” back in February off his second album Tangled Up and with such incredible success, Rhett has decided to give back. Announcing on his Facebook page in celebration of “T-shirt” hitting #1, Rhett designed a limited edition T-shirt that will be on sale for just ten days with all of the proceeds going to local charity 147 Million Orphans.
His wife, Lauren is currently serving on the board at 147 Million Orphans and is going to Uganda in July on a serving trip with 147 Million Orphans.
We spoke to Gwen Oatsvall, co-founder of 147 Million Orphans to ask how the limited edition T-shirt project came about.
“They have been working with us to brainstorm ideas of how we can raise funds to complete projects in Uganda & Honduras. And when ‘T-shirt’ went number one, they launched this promotion. We could not be more excited to be working with such a kind and sincere couple.”
Founded in 2009 by Gwen Oatsvall & Suzanne Mayernick, 147 Million Orphans provides food, water, medicine and shelter to orphans in Haiti, Uganda, and Honduras. Initially starting the foundation as an orphan awareness and way to support those families who were fund raising for adoption fees, their vision has grown to other projects. In supporting these projects, they hope to break the ongoing orphan crisis cycle.
