Helping Soldiers Feel Close to Home - The Home T

Helping Soldiers Feel Close to Home

by Ryan Shell

I spotted this photo of Kait and her fiancee online a couple of days ago and immediately planned to share it with you.

But what I didn’t know is the details behind the photo and what it would eventually be used for. To explain, I’d like to share what Kait wrote on her personal website about the photo.


“I’m one of those people that begins planning their Christmas card for the next year on December 26th. What can I say? I really love to get creative with design and make it bigger and better than the year before. Ask my family, they have been dealing with this for years. Though, everyone knows my love for Christmas and so they tolerate embrace it.

When we found out Dane would be deploying, I knew I wanted to get creative with the popular Christmas carol lyric, “I’ll be home for Christmas, if only in my dreams.”

Enter: The Home T

While we live in Hawaii and home is wherever the Army sends us, both our families live in Pennsylvania and it’s where we both grew up and went to college–kind of hard to deny our Pennsylvania roots! We love our Home T’s because they are super soft and a portion of the proceeds goes to multiple sclerosis research. Plus, they’re 100% made in the USA! #America

I don’t want to give our full card design away this early in the season, but I couldn’t resist sharing this fun photo and the awesomeness that is The Home T with all of you. Dane is taking his to Afghanistan with him to have a little bit of “home” with him at all times and I have been wearing mine non-stop since we received them!”

How amazing is that? Not only are they loving their Pennsylvania Home T, but they are including it, as it seems, on their holiday card this year.

A big thanks to Kait and her fiance for creating such a fun Home T photo, and for serving in the military.
