This is such a worthy story, I posted it on two blogs this morning.
For those of you who are not Steelers fans, you might be able to share the love and buy one of these towels for the cause anyway. I think I see a few becoming gifts. I saw the Division Championship ones that are glitzed up.
Any orders out there?
For Terrible Towels, a Wonderful Legacy
"Myron Cope left behind something far more personal than a legacy of terrycloth, a battle flag for a city and its team. In 1996, he handed over the trademark to the Terrible Towel to the Allegheny Valley School. It is a network of campuses and group homes across Pennsylvania for people with severe intellectual and developmental disabilities. It receives almost all the profits from sales of the towels."
