Why does The Home. T Donate to Multiple Sclerosis Research?

by Ryan Shell

The Home. T donates a portion of its profits to multiple sclerosis research, and someone emailed recently asking why we do so.

There are plenty of reasons why, some hitting closer to home than others, but at the end of the day it’s nasty disease that can impact anyone, at just about any time, and donating to the cause is a top priority.

One of my first experiences with multiple sclerosis was in my early 20’s. My girlfriend at the time had a cousin with the disease, and it just so happened that we were pretty much the same age, and shared the same name, Ryan. The disease negatively impacted Ryan very quickly and he was already bound to a wheelchair by the time I met him. To this day, thinking about him is still a bit mind boggling.

That’s me after finishing my first Tour to Tanglewood.

Once I met Ryan I started doing a bike ride back home called the Tour to Tanglewood – one of the rides that benefits the National Multiple Sclerosis Society – and that was my first experience with trying to raise money for the cause.

Fast forward a number of years, and there are other people now in my life that are also impacted by multiple sclerosis. When my fiancée and I started the company, the thought of donating a portion of The Home. T’s profits to multiple sclerosis research was practically a no-brainer.

We know that our efforts are just a drop in the bucket, but as you know, if you get enough drops in the bucket, it will eventually become full.

I have MS, diagnosed in 2003. Sadly I can not have a home T for myself as my home is Northern Ontario, CANADA ( living in Texas), but my sister in law and good friend Julie grew up in TX and now lives in Memphis. She loves anything that screams texas and this T is a perfect gift for her birthday and I get to have a little bit of my money go to MS.
