Family Reunion Custom T Shirts: How to Promote Family Unity

Jul 19, 2008
What relatives wear can be a means of bringing an extended family together. From babies to great grandparents, everyone can have their own shirt. There are several ways to promote a sense of belonging with custom T shirts.

Family reunions often involve dozens of people, many of whom have never even met before the get-together. This could lead to cliques forming. People tend to stick with those they know rather than meeting others. Custom T shirts can be provided with the names clearly printed on them. This will encourage distant cousins to speak to each other and perhaps form family ties.

Custom T shirts can also be made differently for each branch of the family at a reunion. Often, a reunion is made up of the children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren of an original family group. The shirt could list the name of each original family member for each group at the party. That would give people some idea of how a person was related to them.

Family reunions may be held in a public setting. They may be held in a city park, a theme park, a restaurant, a resort, or even a cruise ship. Without any way to identify each other, family members will not get acquainted with one another. They will miss out on an opportunity to learn more about their roots. If they get matching T shirts, the family members can wear them to stand out in the crowd. Identification is easy, and sometimes it is good to see a person who they are connected to in the area.

After the family reunion is over, people will enjoy having the shirt that commemorates the day the family all got together. Many people wear these special T shirts long after the event is over. Others simply hang them on the wall, or fold them away in their cedar chest. It is all a part of the experience of being a part of this large group.

One final way that families can promote unity with custom T shirts is to use them as a fund raiser. Organizers can have the shirts made up with the family reunion date and name. Then they can put on the shirt the cause they are trying to promote. They can request that people send extra money along with the base cost of the T shirt.

Family members may be trying to save up money with the fundraiser for the restoration of a historic family home. Money might also go to help a sick family member. On the other hand, the cause may be as simple as a group vacation for the extended family.

Getting a shirt for a family reunion can be a very big deal if it means that members feel better about their family. They can become closer, feel like they are a part of the group, and maybe even help accomplish something important. Custom T shirts are a good way to improve family reunions.
