Emily’s Entourage champions building awareness and funds for Cystic Fibrosis research. Now, Rush Order Tees & Printfly are championing EE's cause, highlighting the organization as part of a new initiative aimed at helping their "customers with causes".
Coby Kramer-Golnikoff co-founded the organization named for his sister Emily who, since infancy, has lived with Cystic Fibrosis, a progressive genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. Now 27, Emily continues to fight Cystic Fibrosis (CF) spending countless hours on treatments and therapies trying to salvage every ounce of lung function.
Coby has taken the mantle to build awareness of Cystic Fibrosis and raise funds to contribute to a cure.
“It has been unbelievable to see a little idea that started in our living room transform into a fully operational organization,” explained Kramer-Golnikoff. “We kicked off a social media initiative called 'Where in the world is Emily's Entourage' where we encouraged people to buy t-shirts or tanks tops (made by RushOrderTees), take a picture of themselves in a cool, iconic location and post it on our FB page. We have received unbelievable pictures from all over the world!”
Emily's Entourage also seeks to galvanize younger audiences by hosting fundraisers on college campuses across the country. While the group sells custom t-shirts for fundraising on their website, the sale EE custom tank tops has been a leading contributor. Uniquely, the shirts actually serve as tickets to EE fundraising events. Coby attributes much of the organization’s accomplishment to the successful engagement of this younger audience wi
