Our new limited edition Fotostrap is more than just another chic color to add to our collection. The cherry on top is that we designed "Mint" in honor of and to support Fotolanthropy's newest story featuring a local Dallas ice cream shop, Howdy Homemade. Fotolanthropy is just weeks away from releasing this story and short film, so we are thrilled to give you an exclusive sneak preview of this deliciously sweet story of dreaming, exceeding expectations, and ice cream.
Howdy Homemade is the concept of restaurateur Tom Landis, a man who sees untapped potential in his special-needs employees. Tom believes in the American dream and that even those with disabilities deserve the opportunity to achieve that dream. Fourteen of his sixteen Howdy Homemade employees have special needs, including Coleman Jones (pictured above and below). With a heart ignited by a passion to lead those with special needs to a new level of social standard, Tom is making waves in changing the way his community sees disability, and changing these young peoples' lives forever.
