Last year was the first time I had heard the term “Forget the Frock“. Always looking for a way to simplify life and help the less fortunate (and a bonus if we can do both at once!), I immediately jumped on board. A shirt was designed and promoted supporting Haiti Lifeline Ministries, starting an adoption fund within the ministry.
And as Easter came closer this year and I knew we needed to start planning for Forget the Frock if we wanted to do it again, I wrestled a bit. Because Easter feels like such a slighted holiday anyway, yet it is one of the most important. I don’t want to participate in hijacking the resurrection of Christ in the name of raising money, even for such a worthy cause as adoption. But on the other hand, we (as Americans) can spend so much time, money, and energy on clothes that will be worn one day, fussed over for pictures, and then stuffed in closets and sold next year at garage sales, I decided maybe this wasn’t really hijacking anything, but maybe taking it back. Because Christ came to seek and save the lost, to lead the charge to care for the orphan and widow, and if we are adopted in Him then we are commanded to do the same. So maybe a simple shirt that can be worn year round, proclaiming His name and the good news, that helps put orphans in families….maybe that really is the best way to dress for Easter.
So we are excited to do this again, with some great new shirts designed just for this event.

Forget the frock. Help an orphan. Buy a shirt. Change a life.
