Coloring Contest Winners!

Hello Friends! Hope you are all staying warm while the “Snowpocalpse” is afoot! We are loving these snowy days here at the TGO home front. Did you know we have a home front AND a headquarters? Yep, half of the team works diligently downtown and Denise and Sam work, well, work anywhere really, but lately it’s been in the kitchen. Lucky them, they have a puppy to hang with everyday!

OK! Without further ado, because I know what you’re all waiting for, let’s announce the winners of our first coloring contest!

Will Betsy K., Jay C., and Heather W. email Sam at Sam@thegoodones.com for their prize!?

We loved checking our Facebook each day, seeing new works of art show up. It was always an added bonus when we saw it was a family affair! So thank you guys for showing us your stuff. Soon we will show you the stuff we’ve been working on to make it even! Pinky Promise. Until then… How about a little sneak peek?

XO,

It's me, Betsy! - YAY! Thank you!!!!!!!

WE love TGO!

And the Super Star of the week is…

Today the Super Star of the week is Abby! You were our first comment, and heck you were right too! Princess Leia was held in detention block AA-23! Since the trivia question was about such an epic movie, it’s only fitting that the prize is epic too!

5 TGO wooden hangers featuring our favorite band’s #1 fan Paulie! Designed and made in good ol’ Indiana, these hangers were made to sport your TGO whenever you’re not! AHHHHH, can you tell we are excited about these?!

Miss Abby, please email Sam at Sam@thegoodones.com with your address so we can get these shipped your way!

Thanks to all the Star Wars loving fans for participating!! I have a feeling we will have another contest soon, so check back!

You Can Call Her A Dreamer

We’ve got brains and guts, but we’ve also got dreams. And these dreams have only gotten bigger this year by adding a new member to the TGO crew. Denise DeMarchis, mother of 2 of the original Good Ones Joe and Gabe, is a dreamer, an inspirer, and a creator. She’s had about every job you can imagine, from working at KFC to running her own gift shop to traveling art fairs around the country selling her hand painted designs.

Smart, curious, BRAVE! These words describe her perfectly, but don’t quite paint the entire picture. So for all of you that don’t know Denise, below are a few interesting facts about her!

Oh, and one last thing you should know about this lady? She loves a good ol’ fashion contest. So in typical Denise fashion, let’s have a blog contest with a surprise prize! This question comes from her Star Wars loving husband, David DeMarchis:

 In which detention block was Princess Leia held as a prisoner in the Death Star?

Alright, we will pick the first person with correct answer and post the winner tomorrow!

A Little Bit Louder Now

The show’s not over…until it’s OVER. Someone famous said that, right? Well here at the TGO Headquarters we know this to be true. Just when you think we’ve moved on, we come back bigger and louder than ever before.

For instance, we’ve got a great team assembled for the New Year! Alongside Matt (our office genius), Olivia (your go-to-girl for all things TGO), and Jake, Jono, Emma, Tommy, Shane (the great graphic designers that dream up songs with the band The Final Hurrahs) and Beth, Bridget and Michelle, we are adding Denise DeMarchis and Sam McDonald to the lineup. Have you heard of these chicks? They’re like Batman and Robin. Or Ren and Stimpy. Or maybe Peanut Butter and Jelly. We will hear more about this super duo later this week! But for now….

If there’s one thing our new gals Denise and Sam dig; it’s COLOR. So let’s welcome them to the team the best way we know how with a coloring contest! You know all those coloring pages we’ve posted over the year? Well now’s your chance to show us your crayon/marker/glitter/pencil/painting skills!

First off, print your pup! Go to http://blog.thegoodones.com/category/tour-blog/ and choose the tour blog with the coloring page you like best. After you’ve got your page in hand, choose your favorite coloring supplies and get to work! Post a photo of your masterpiece on The Good Ones Facebook for a chance to win a $50 TGO gift card!

We will pick 3 lucky winners!! The contest ends January 31st so you’ll wanna get started soon! The winners will be on the blog by Feb 3rd.

Can’t wait to share what we’ve got up our sleeves this year. Stay tuned!

XO,

Back in the Studio

We’re not going anywhere. In fact, we’re back in the studio—and looking forward to a great 2015!

Here’s the latest.

First off, the Make a Mighty Difference Sale was a resounding success! We thank you for supporting The Good Ones Clothing and Mighty Acorn Foundation. The funds raised for the foundation will directly assist the Changing the Face of Beauty initiative, which is such an incredibly important and beautiful cause.

Along the way, we sold out of most of our inventory—including everything kids-sized. (Note: we did just add a limited quantity of adult-sized Riot Fest tees (1-2-3-4! and Takeover), and of course, we have the Live Bold tee—supporting Poptique Popcorn’s Lindsey Hively.)

What’s next?

We’re gathered ‘round the table again—our favorite table!—and more inspired than ever. Yup, we’re working a masterpiece—or two. We’ll be back in 2015 with two collections.

You can keep track of the adventure on this blog. We’re taking photos and videos all along the way, and can’t wait to share the story—and the new clothing—with all of you.

We appreciate your patience and support. We love being a band, and we love being a band with purpose. And your smiling kids give us that purpose.

Thank you,

The team at The Good Ones Clothing
