Every year, Hardcore Italians sells a St. Joseph’s Day t-shirt to bring awareness to our beloved St. Joseph’s Day.
We have a passion to showcase this holiday because it is the birthday and name of our grandfather who immigrated from Italy and inspired the Hardcore Italians brand today. You can see the post about the t-shirt below.
Due to our passion with St. Joseph’s Day, we did not want to just sell the shirt without giving back, so we reached out to Mary Kovach with the Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America (OSIDA) for help to support this day.
As the philanthropic arm of the OSDIA, the Sons of Italy Foundation is dedicated to preserving Italian American culture.
We agreed to donating a portion of the proceeds from the shirt to help fund the St. Joseph Table Exhibit at the Sons of Italy Museum on Staten Island. They not only set up a beautiful table, but they educate more people about the history of St. Joseph’s Day. We highly recommend for you to watch it below!
The Hardcore Italians and OSIDA communities really supported the fundraiser and we ended up selling over 300 t-shirts. The final donation was $1,575.00.
We wanted to give our sincerest thank you for supporting St. Joseph’s Day, the Italian-American community, and Italian-American organizations.
Stay tuned for more efforts to giving back to Italian-American causes. We plan on having more come soon!
