For those of you who are just discovering me, I also run a clothing company called BETWEEN DREAMS. The mission is to encourage people to not only dream big dreams, but to live big lives. Dreams are great, but the important stuff happens Between Dreams.

Shane is living a big life, not just dreaming about it, so I'm happy to offer this: Purchase anything from the Between Dreams Store, use the code SHANE at checkout and get 10% off your order. We'll also donate all the profits from those orders directly to Laughing At My Nightmare.

I believe in the work they are doing and I'm happy to help. I hope you'll do the same.
