Ripples of Hope

Ripples of Hope

“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” — Robert F. Kennedy, 1966 at the University of Cape Town in apartheid S. Africa


The Ripples of Hope Jersey - a statement that each of us makes a difference, and that together we can change our world.

Over the past several months, almost all of humanity has been paralyzed in the grip of the global Covid 19 pandemic. For weeks, daily news reports inundated our consciousness with staggering numbers of infections and deaths, while videos haunted us with images of desperately exhausted healthcare workers and intubated victims dying in isolation. The mighty financial capitols of the world have been silenced, and millions in the developing world struggle to avoid starvation as their daily wage existence has been disrupted.
 


Even more recently, we have been shocked by the sickening killings of Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd. This has galvanized our nation to address the many instances of racial injustice and violence against the Black Community by those who foment prejudice and hatred towards people of color.

In the face of such daunting challenges, it is easy for any of us to feel that there is nothing we can do to make a difference. In fact, it has always been that way – whether racism, poverty, or natural disaster – we can often be paralyzed by the thought that our personal capacity is too small, our individual impact is too lacking.

During these times, we at Pactimo find inspiration in the words of Bobby Kennedy over 50 years ago. Rather than be daunted into inaction, we are encouraged by the thought that each one of us can make a difference, whether great or small. And it is in the sum total of our individual acts of caring, serving, giving, and sacrificing that the power to improve our world is accumulated.

For years, it has been Pactimo’s privilege to regularly and consistently provide support to organizations and teams of people who are making a difference. Our primary focus has been on healthcare, children, disaster relief and people in need. For example, we have also honored our military personnel through partnerships with organizations supporting veterans. The Covid 19 pandemic has raised up a new line of heroes – frontline workers caring for the sick, elderly, and homeless in a time of great risk. To support them, we are proud to have brought in 40,000 medical masks since April that have been distributed to medical and non-profit agencies.
 


$40 Donated with Every Jersey Purchase

And now, we feel the need to launch the Ripples of Hope Jersey. This campaign is designed to support organizations that are either meeting critical needs or focused on helping individuals during these challenging times. For every jersey sold, we will donate $40 to support one of the following charities: Combat Coronavirus Fund, Feeding America, EmbraceRace, NAACP Legal Defense Fund and Samaritan’s Purse. You will be able to select the charity of your choice when you make your purchase.

Our Sr. Product Designer, Ryan White, was inspired by Kennedy’s quote to create a striking design reflecting the powerful idea of ripples coming together to form a current. There are 8 beautiful color variations of this theme to choose from.

It is our hope that you will wear the Ripples of Hope Jersey as a statement that you believe each one of us makes a difference and that together, we can change our world.
