Support Borrowed Breaths

Helping others has always come naturally to me. But excepting help has always felt a bit awkward. Not because I don’t feel I need it or don’t feel appreciative. But because I simply don’t wish to take advantage of others kindness. I am smart enough to realize however; that in order to grow Borrowed Breaths into what I believe it has the potential to be. Will require more than just my own tenacity.


Over on Borrowed Breaths storefront you’ll find a large number of T-shirts, Hoodies, Sweatshirts, Face masks, Coffee mugs, and more for sale. Items with the Borrowed Breaths logo… but even more items focusing on Pulmonary Fibrosis, Organ donation, and our heroes in the medical field.

Recurring Donation

I set up subscription tiers through Paypal. For those wanting to donate on a monthly basis. If you don’t have paypal, you can choose “Pay with Debit or Credit card.” After clicking on the tier of your choice. I don’t really expect any one to choose the higher tiers… but I was having fun with the theme and just keep going. Honestly I am thankful for any help no matter the amount. Be it reoccurring or a one time gift.
