I am Kristi, who runs “Thru Kristi’s Eyes” t-shirt store to help raise awareness of Retinitis Pigmentosa. I am dealing with Retinitis Pigmentosa & myopic degeneration.
The idea for t-shirts came about one day when trying to figuring out a way to raise awareness for RP and also help raise money for the Foundation Fighting Blindness. My mom mentioned t-shirts and we talked designs and I found a website that I am able to design my own and everyone is able to purchase on their own from anywhere in the world.
I get part of the proceeds and from there I donate from 25-50%. I run two groups for RP awareness,
- Parents of RP Children &
- Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) Chat Group For Women
I try to create t-shirts that will appeal to kids and parents as well as just everyone in general. Raising awareness is important and even if it’s one t-shirt at a time, I’m feeling as if I’m making a contribution!
