A Chicago-based clothing company comprised of military veterans made a staggering donation of over $200,000 to the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation, Tuesday night. Grunt Style is a rough and tumble group of whiskey-drinking, bacon-loving, American patriots that wanted to give back to the police officers that were attacked during the Dallas police ambush that took place on July 7, 2016. Five officers were tragically killed and nine others seriously injured that night when a deranged gunman opened fire on the officers overseeing a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest. The freedom-loving entrepreneurs decided to give back to the officers the best way they know how; designing a kick-ass tribute T-shirt and donating 100% of the proceeds to the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation.
The CEO of Grunt Style proudly presented several members of the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation and Dallas police officials with a whopping $204,000 check. Thanks to the efforts of these selfless vets each of the nine officers injured in the attack will receive approximately $10,000. The company donated $10.00 from each t-shirt sold to the cause. Thanks to the overwhelming demand the foundation was able to nearly meet its original goal of raising $250,000 with the single donation from Grunt Style. According to the Dallas Police department over 21,000 shirts were sold to honor the fallen officers.
The Dallas Police Department was so grateful for the support that they tweeted a photo of the awesome apparel on their official twitter account.
Grunt Style also live-streamed the donation ceremony. Several officers made statements expressing their thanks and the ceremony was cap-stoned with Grunt Style CEO, Daniel Alarik, presenting the massive $204,000 donation. Watch a live stream of the ceremony below.
The Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation was founded in 2009 with the goal of easing the financial and emotional burdens placed on officers and their families that are killed or seriously injured in the line of duty.
