On August 1st, 2016 the beautifully designed community launched a nationwide Back the Blue movement that blessed over 260 counties in every state. The women of beautifully designed gathered their communities and took homemade cards, water, and snacks to their local law enforcement agencies.
We are very excited about the 2nd annual Back the Blue day on August 1st, 2017. We encourage each of you to start gathering the troops to prepare to bless your local heroes.
Back the Blue 2017
This year we have partnered with Patriot Threads to help fundraise in your area. When you click the “back the blue” tab on the website you will be directed to a link to order the “Back the Blue 2017” shirt. After you click “proceed to checkout” there will be a box to type in your local law enforcement’s full web address. Patriot Threads will then send $6.00 per shirt bought to your designated local law enforcement department. This is a great way to raise money for your local heroes, and you will also be supporting them by wearing your shirt on Back the Blue day, August 1st.

ONCE AGAIN..READY TO BACK THE BLUE….THOUGH OUR NUMBERS HAVE DOUBLED!!! Last year I participated by honoring the Walton Co. Sheriff’s Org….this year the Okaloosa Co. Sheriff’s Org. Has asked to be included also…what WAS 350…now is closer to 700! We are DOING it. Last year it was myself, my husband and a few friends. This year I have asked my Alpha-Omega Gamers (small group at Destiny Worship Center) to join in the help…and with additional time, I am sure we can make it HONORABLE and MEMORABLE for all! Trying to get our DESTIN LOG paper, PUBLIX and WINN-DIXIE involved locally…we shall see. Thanks again for spearheading the 2017 HONOR!
