Mission:
The Great Bowel Movement is a social awareness movement with the goals of empowering patients associated with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) including Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, as well as J-Pouch and Ostomy, to embrace their disease, be proud of their experience, and spread awareness throughout their communities.
The Great Bowel Movement produces trendy “Ask Me” t-shirts designed to be worn out and about, and initiates conversations about IBD. It opens doors to conversations with colleagues or strangers, empowers those who wear them, and creates role models out of those who have overcome, or are overcoming, the challenges of living with chronic illness, who live their lives happily and successfully.
Results:
To date, we've distributed over 1000 shirts to empowered patients, including a handful of free SponsorShirts to those who are out there going above and beyond to live their lives as examples and spread awareness.
Over the past two years, we've donated to a variety of IBD and ostomy related charities as a result of our t-shirt sales.
We're currently working with a team to develop more programs and resources to continue our mission of IBD awareness.

I am a mom of a son with Crohn's x 27 years, who has been through about every complication, both with the disease physically -- surgeries, fistula, fungal infection from a med, gallbladder, countless meds -- and also emotionally - trying to hold onto a job, social isolation, wife who left.
