Every 26 seconds a kid drops out of high school in America. Once a student makes that drastic decision it’s downhill from there. With proper teaching, opportunity, and resources that decision does not have to be made.
We teamed up with our good friends at Merit and designed this special limited edition 26 tee to raise awareness about this issue. 20% of the proceeds will go directly to fund college scholarships.
Each heather black tee is made in the USA and features the special 26 design, complete with custom Merit sleeve patch and Ugmonk hem tag. These tees will only be available for 26 days.
Get your own limited edition tee here.
This shirt/project is all about awareness. 26 influencers across the world have partnered with us to show their support for education. Together, we are working to spread the importance of this message. From May 1-27 each influencer post a creative photo of the 26 tee on Instagram with the hashtag #Every26Seconds.
We’d love for you to join the movement and pledge your support by ordering your very own 26 tee posting a photo with the hashtag #Every26Seconds.

Thanks for your support!

Inspiration can strike at any time and it’s important to capture those ideas wherever you are. Although we have all sorts of devices and technology around us, sometimes the best way to think through an idea is with old fashioned pen and paper. There’s something about physically writing things down that helps us remember and process them differently.
The new Mini Sketchbook Set includes 3 sketchbooks featuring 3 of our favorite designs. The books are made in the USA from 100% recycled paper and printed with vegetable-based inks. Each book contains 32 blank pages, measuring 3.5″ x 5″ – a perfect size to carry in a pocket or bag. Check out all of the details here.

We have a lot more in the works including some special collaborations that I’ll be sharing more details about soon.
Next week, we’re off to Honduras to help at one of the orphanages that we partner with. You can follow me on Instagram for photos of our trip.

Travel mugs are a dime a dozen these days, but most of them have issues like a clunky handle, flimsy construction, or poor insulation. Rather than trying to solve these problems on our own we decided to team up with our favorite bottle company Klean Kanteen to make some awesome Ugmonk travel mugs.
This 16oz vacuum insulated bottle will keep your drinks warm for up to 6 hours or cold for up to 24 hours. The insulation also means your bottle won’t sweat and soak through your bag or burn your hand. The wide mouth opening and 18/8 food-grade stainless steel makes it easy to clean and keeps it from retaining flavors. The wide mouth also makes it easy to fill and pour. There’s no need for special shaped ice cubes.
Choose from the twist top cafe cap for easy access to your beverage or add a perfectly spill proof loop cap that allows you to easily clip your bottle onto your bag or belt.

This year’s Ugmonk Charity Drive was our biggest one yet! Between your orders, generous donations, and the private donor match we’re donating a grand total of 16,557 meals to kids around the world through our partnership with Rice Bowls.
It’s exciting to see be able to give back more each year and see the real impact that it’s having on so many lives. We can’t wait to visit some of the kids again in person. Thanks for all of your support!
