We are making some changes here at Good Boy Roy headquarters !! Things we are excited about and think will make this brand even better.
Not only that, but the REAL Good Boy Roy, aka Zack is turning 17 on the 23rd of March. That, to me, is unbelievable. He has come so far, worked very hard and continues to have enduring faith and hope.
His dad and I, along with his grandparents, surprised him with a little truck for his birthday. I can’t believe how perfect it is for him !! Zack is not yet driving alone, he struggles so much with his nerves and anxiety, but little by little he is getting more comfortable behind the wheel. Why, you may ask, buy a kid a car if they can’t drive, alone. Well, both my husband and I have very large vehicles, which makes it difficult for Zack to feel comfortable driving, much less take the driving test in one of them. So, we thought if we could find something small, used, then he could begin to drive more, get more use to driving and take the test soon. Lets hope we are right.
This little truck, a 2006 Chevrolet Colorado, looks like it was made for him. He was tickled to death when he saw it and can not believe it is his.
On the Good Boy Roy business front. The past few weeks have been a flurry of meetings for me, really doing things I should have done in the beginning. Meetings with a counselor at the SBDC (Small Business Developement Center), SCORE, and a Business attorney and Trademark Attorney.
We have decided from here on out to print all designs exclusively on Delta Apparel shirts, that are 100% RingSpun cotton or 100% Pre-shrunk cotton along with printing our own personalized label inside each shirt.
I cant wait to see the new designs coming out in this format.
The first will be Happy Harry.
Isn’t he a cutie??
And, for the girls, we are waiting on Chatty Cathy to come alive as well.
Another change in 2012, we are proud to announce, our continued support of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). In the past, Good Boy Roy has donated the proceeds from sales of the NAMI shirt to our local Greenville NAMI chapter. This has not resulted in the level of support we would like, so we now will donate 10% of ALL sales, ALL year long to NAMI. 🙂
Chances are you know someone who suffers with a mental illness, of some kind. Mental illness affects people of every age, race and ethnicity, there is NO discrimination . We, at Good Boy Roy, look forward to donating generously this year, and every year, to NAMI as they continue to provide research and support to people and families living with a Mental Illness.
I have also been aggressivley seeking a Sales Rep for us, to help in the the goal of securing placement for the products in brick and mortar retailers, and trying to connect with buyers. Anyone out there interested? Give me a shout.
So, 2012, has new things, new ideas and anticipation.
