SaltTee was built and is run completely by volunteers. We are actively seeking new volunteers. Graphic design, blogging, marketing, sharing or liking a post on Facebook, taking shirts to the post office. If you have any talents, yes I mean ANY... please contact us and let us know that you'd like to be involved. We'll find you a spot.
Brian & Karen Culbertson
Duties include: T-shirt design, marketing, ordering, delivery, shipping, billing, accounting, blog writing and toliet cleaning.
Located: Beautiful Southwest Florida where the sun shines and the snow birds reside....at least part of the year.
Day Job: Insurance Agents at Culbertson Allstate Agency and slaves to our kids.
Kids: 3 girls. We're already bribing them to skip the wedding and just elope ... that is when we aren't bribing them not to pick their noses.
Dogs: 105 pound gentle giant of a chocolate lab named Hershey who enjoys the occasional belly rub and butt sniff.
From: Small town Indiana. Trust me ... you have never heard of where we are came from (go Hoosiers).
School: University of Evansville. Brian majored in Pre-med until organic chemistry kicked him around. He decided business might be a better calling. Karen majored in Interpersonal Communication, so go ahead.....tell her your life story, you know you want to.
Current Ministry Involvement: We host a small group at our home monthly of 30 and 40 something’s (although the age is pretty liberal, so why don't you join us). We attend and sometimes teach a class of young adults on Sunday mornings. I think they really invited us to be the chaperones, but they are too nice to tell us that we really don't fit the demographic. We participate in a Monday night homeless dinner every couple of months at our church to remind us even the Savior of the world didn't have a place to lay his head. We assist in a car care ministry through our church that provides basic car maintenance to widows and single moms. We volunteer with the children and youth ministry at our church, we are really just trying to scope out who our kids hang out with and trying to keep up on how to be "cool".
Ultimately our love is missions to Hato Del Yaque in the Dominican Republic and the beautiful people there. They remind us God is our ultimate blessing and not all the stuff we try to collect in America. They help remind us not to get too comfortable in this life, to love others, to strive for a backwards life, to feed those that are hungry, to treat others how we want to be treated, to be awesome and to never look back at our old life because we have been REDEEMED!
You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way,let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven. (Matthew 5:13-16 NIV)
SaltTee gives 100% of all profits from each t-shirt directly to ministry. Too often ministries fail for lack of funding. In other instances precious time is taken away from the ministry to search for support. Our concept, was to use our knowledge of business to deliver a premium product to raise financial support for ministry in Hato del Yaque, Dominican Republic.
SaltTee was built and is run completely by volunteers. There are no salaries, rent or design costs. All marketing is via word of mouth, social media or is subsidized by business partners. The only cost in each SaltTee shirt is material, screen printing and shipping. This allows us to deliver a premium t-shirt at an affordable price and give the maximum amount of support to ministry.
Each t-shirt comes with a story and is designed to encourage the question "what does that shirt mean?" When your new SaltTee shirt arrives, it will include the story behind the shirt with your shipment. You are invited to share this story, or if you prefer, you can direct those who ask to SaltTee.com where they can read the story for themselves.
