Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

No time for small talk and dribble drabble today. Today is about serious business. The people of Japan have gone through a horrific few weeks that I can’t even imagine. Have you done anything to help?

My friends over at Mighty Detroit have. They have a new t-shirt design out with 100% of the proceeds going towards the rebuilding and relief efforts in Japan.

Since 1805 Detroit's city motto has been "Speramus Meliora; Resurget Cineribus" which translates to "We Hope For Better Things; It Shall Rise From the Ashes."  With every test and every obstacle, Detroit has bounced back and lifted itself up.  As much as Detroit was, is and will continue to be a "come-back" story, we, here at Mighty Detroit, cannot ignore a Japanese culture and society that has faced immeasurable obstacles and has always made a come-back.  Today, Mighty Detroit offers its help to Japan.  For an unlimited time, Mighty Detroit will donate 100% of the proceeds from every sale of the Mighty Japan t-shirt to rebuilding efforts in Japan.  Be Mighty.

 Be mighty, people, be mighty.
