Break the Chain Apparel makes speaking out against social issues as simple as racing or getting dressed . With our awareness apparel, and break the chain racing team we spread the message that violence and addiction are not the norm. Whether it is our anti bullying t-shirts, or any of our abuse awareness apparel, Break the Chain Monster truck, S10 drag truck, V-8 Hot saw, enduro motocross bike, Mazda Miata, or any of our break the chain racing team, we want to help stop domestic violence, addiction and abuse by speaking out against the unspeakable by simply getting dressed.
When you purchase our clothing for a cause, you may inspire others to take the first step and ask for help. By donating a portion of our sales to Project Change Reaction a nonprofit that goes directly into the schools to teach our youth about social issues so that they can break the chain of what for some has been a generational curse. We as a society have a past that is filled with domestic violence, addiction, bullying and other types of abuse, but we can stand united whether it is with Break the Chain Racing team or Break the Chain’s awareness apparel and speak out without saying a word. You do not have to be a victim to understand the importance of our awareness apparel. You can show support by simply getting dressed. Together we can become one voice, and send a strong message that we will, break the Chain of violence and addiction. It’s as easy as wearing Break the Chain clothing with a voice, clothing for a cause to help stop domestic violence and other social issues. Choose your voice, and join us as we reach out, to speak out by racing and simply getting dressed.

Another season of monster truck racing comes to an end for Break the Chain. What a great time we had at the Sublimity Harvest Festival! Spectacular driving by "thing one" Aaron Basl this year! I swear that truck had wings as he expertly drove her up and over buses, cars and vans effortlessly! He did end up flipping her over on Saturday night, which brought the crowd to their feet and earned us a perfect score! Me on the other hand, screamed so loud that I lost my voice for a few days. (I think my husband was happy about that). Sunday Aaron brought home the win for the Break the Chain team! Way to go Thing One!

One of the questions I get asked frequently is, why do we include skulls and skeletons in our designs? I am sure my answer may surprise some of you. I am reminded every time I see a skeleton that we are all the same underneath. That popularity status, income bracket, what we drive, where we live, whether we are married or single, race, creed or religion doesn’t matter. The common denominator is that we are all human.
You see, what a skeleton signifies to me is that we are all equal under our skin.
Beauty is not only skin deep but even deeper. Beauty comes from within. When I look at a skull or a skeleton I am reminded that we are all human. We all arrived in this world the same way, and none of us are exempt from death. I am also reminded that we only have this life to make a difference here on earth.
The one thing that sets us apart is our choices. We can choose to be a productive member of society, or we can choose to not be.
I guess what I am trying to say is, we are more than our skin, and who we are comes from within.

I look back at the journey over the last 5 years and stand in awe at the distance we have come. It’s like going across country. Some of the roads are straight up and winding while others are flat. No matter what you are doing in your life there will always be peaks and valleys.
Life has certainly thrown more than a few curves at us over the years but we have remained strong and committed to bringing this important message nationwide. We have had the opportunity to work with The National Network to End Domestic Violence. That was, and still is an exciting opportunity. Break the Chain’s, it’s Not Love if there’s Fear t-shirt was brought out on Capitol Hill in Washington DC in April. A portion of the sales of that t-shirt goes back to the NNEDV. For those of you not familiar with what they do I have included a link. http://www.nnedv.org They are an amazing group of people making a difference everyday in the fight against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.
I am also proud of the Racing to Break the Chain Team. What a fantastic group of people they are! Pat and Nikki James and there souped up S10 drag truck, Kailia Walter and her Mazda Miata, Bry Taylor with her 3:16 dirt track car, Jonathon Brown and his racing carts, and don’t forget “Hope” our Monster display truck that once a year turns into a real monster.
2012 is going to be a great year! We have added another addition to our Racing to Break the Chain team! Bill Carter is the owner of BST Kustoms. He and his crew are going to restore our 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle! Bill has an incredible talent when it comes to paint and airbrushing! Make sure and check out his company. http://bstkustoms.com/index.htm We will make sure and keep you up to date on the process with lots of pictures. His plan is to include high school students in a one of a kind, hands on training. We at Break the Chain Apparel are proud to list Bill and BST Kustoms as part of the team.
Together we can and will make a difference. It is going to take all our talents and voices to bring into the light all that is broken. We appreciate every fan, and every person wearing our gear that has spoken out by simply getting dressed the past 5 years. We look forward to many more!
