Longtime Jade Tree friend Mark Beemer founded in January 2002 to honor his wife, Syrentha, who lost her battle with breast cancer.
Because SSE is very involved within the punk rock community, was launched to enable bands to show that they care about social issues, while fans get a chance to own an exclusive piece of merchandise. The site will feature limited edition t-shirts from various bands to aide SSE in its efforts to provide funding for chemotherapy and other medication for underprivileged women who cannot afford the growing expense of fighting breast cancer. In addition to STRIKE ANYWHERE The Shirts For A Cure Project has exclusive designs available from Thursday, Thrice, Taking Back Sunday, Darkest Hour, and a barrage of others.
To date SSE has raised over $100,000 for breast cancer treatment.
