We live in a world filled with participation awards. There is a lot of debate on whether these are ethical or not. What do they mean for our children? How does it impact society? We aren’t going to deal with that subject here. This is a t-shirt description for crying out loud, people! We aren’t some big news station! Though I wish we were. I’ve always wanted to say “Now over to Bill with the sports” or something cool like that.


No, this shirt ignores any real dilemma involved with participation awards and focuses on something that does deserve an award: waking up.


Waking up is hard to do. Sometimes we don’t think about all the effort it takes to wake up every morning. Waking up is so hard that some animals don’t do it all winter long!

Waking up is usually aided by 3 important things:


  • Eyes and ears
  • Desire
  • Being alive


Waking up starts with your eyes and ears. They sense the light coming into your room or the sound of your alarm clock, causing your brain to come out of slumber mode. That seems easy, but think about it: In the world, 3.5% of people are visually impaired, and 5% are deaf.


Next, You’d think it would be easy to have the desire to get up, but you’d be wrong. A whopping 55% of people are not morning people, and hate getting up in the morning.


Now on to being alive. Roughly 150,000 people die every day. And once you’re dead, waking up is very rare. Plus, at that point, your eyes, ears, and desire won’t do you any good so this one really is the most important.


What do these numbers and statements mean? We don’t know. What’s our point? Our point is, if you are awake, you deserve an award! So get this shirt for you and others to reward the amazing feat of waking up and getting out of bed!
