Get Ticked Off at Lyme Disease! Clothing Line

Hi everyone!


I'm proud (and nervous) to announce that I've teamed up with Cafe Press to sell Lyme disease awareness clothing here! If you didn't know already, I have also created a CLAPS program for teachers and children to teach what Lyme disease is and how to prevent it.

One lesson I teach in my program is to wear long-sleeved, light colored shirts as well as light colored pants tucked into your socks. In addition, I also teach children to wear caps or hats on their heads to prevent a tick from latching onto their scalps. Hiking appropriate clothing is available in my shop, as well as fashion items. The fashion items are all items that are BLACK, while hiking appropriate items are those that are WHITE and LONG (i.e. no tank tops, short-sleeves, etc.). Of course, it is up to the consumer to use the clothing properly. :) Personally, I enjoy wearing tank tops while I hike but it isn't the most tick-safe method, so I made other choices available.

I encourage you to check it out and possibly consider purchasing an item! All profits after costs are donated to the California Lyme Disease Association (lymedisease.org).

Thank you so much! :)

xoxo Angela
