1791 Nation Cares was created as a way to raise funds for those in need and make people excited about it. Co-founded by Mike, a volunteer firefighter and 9/11 responder from New York, and his partner/graphic designer Casey, 1791 Nation was started with one goal in mind, to help those in need and to honor our heroes by creating apparel that makes people excited to support these important causes. While in the midst of busy production days and nights, one of our own was plagued by the disease that has effected too many first responders. Mike was diagnosed with 9/11 related cancer in 2023, and while his prognosis is good due to early detection, it has given him even more of a passion to help those in need and especially help other first responders in his position. To leave this legacy is one of his biggest goals in life.
Whether a community member battling an illness, a fire department raising funds, or a school raising money for scholarships, we want to help you change the world one t-shirt at a time!
1791 Nation was founded on March 17, 2020 and to date we have been able to donate over $15,000 to families of First Responders, schools and organizations across our community. Our goal is to make an impact for more families around our country, and we welcome all fundraising ideas to make that happen! Our customers and supporters are the ones who make this happen, so we say THANK YOU to everyone who has supported and continue to support us on this journey!
