Portland, OR, April 23, 2013. The local design company, 3%milk (threepercentmilk.com), announced the sale of a “PRIDE/STRIDE” Boston charity print, with all proceeds benefiting The One Fund of Boston. The One Fund was formed by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013. It has received donations of over 20 million dollars so far.
“As a former Boston resident—with friends in the marathon and very near the Watertown shootings—I was compelled to create something to honor Boston and its spirit,” says Jennifer Prinzing, owner of 3%milk. “Being away from the city that I once called home and worrying about my friends, I felt the need to do something. Design is my language, so that seemed like one way to help.”
The charity print, in the iconic blue and yellow marathon colors, is a tribute to Boston’s city pride, marathon pride and how both of these will undoubtedly find their stride again, despite the tragedy of this week’s events. Prinzing runs the one-woman design shop and is hoping to be overwhelmed by the response. “I hope that I’ll be pulling all-nighters, printing and mailing these posters. I want to raise thousands of dollars for this cause. Even more, if possible.”
