SCOTTSDALE, AZ — A group of Valley middle school girls have banded together to help send a strong message to the community. They are designing t-shirts carrying the message "Flatten the Curve" by social distancing, and staying at home as much as possible.

"It's good to keep yourself protected and the people around you protected." said Vivian Biggs, one of the girls involved in this T-shirt squad.

The girls ranged in age from 12-14 years of age and attended Desert Shadows and Mountain Trail Middle Schools. Their names are Riley, Jordan, Vivian, Eva, and Noelle.

Jorden Gabbart said they partnered up with the T-shirt printing company Fresh Baked Tees to get the shirts made. All of the designs were created by the girls.

From sparkles, to camels, dolphins, and bunnies, you can find their prints on everything from shirts to canvas tote bags and cell phone covers as well.

A chunk of the proceeds made from the sale of these items will be donated to charity. The girls said they hoped to support the local food banks who are helping feed so many students while school is out.

You can find the items the girls have designed here. You can also find them on the Flatten the Curve charity website.
