·2 min read

Six-year-old Leontine Doherty and her brother 4-year old Colton Doherty's tie dye t-shirts inspire us to: Spread Love Not Germs ... Wash Your Hands to help grandparents and loved ones stay safe.

DARIEN, Conn., March 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyone is encouraged to post pics wearing 'Spread Love' t- shirts and/or washing your hands to help keep your grandparents and loved ones safe. Use #WashHands4Grands

It's hard for little children to understand why they haven't seen their grandparents, aunties, friends, and teachers while social distancing.

Shannon Doherty, of Darien, Connecticut and mother of four young children explains, "My children miss their grandparents and aunties. I want my children to know that little actions today, like washing hands, can make a huge difference for their grandparents and loved ones to help keep everyone safe."

Shannon's children Leontine (Lala), Colton (Coco) and their little sister Peaches wanted to make t-shirts for all their friends and family to spread the message to wash your hands. The Doherty children's inspirational 'Spread Love' t- shirts quickly gained popularity, sold out within the first two days and are now restocked, available for purchase online at and on Instagram @cocoandlalawatchhill

The sale of 'Spread Love' t-shirts not only spreads the inspirational Clean Hands message "wash your hands to help keep grandparents and loved ones safe", it allows this small family run shop, forced to close its doors during this global pandemic, to be sustainable. And, for every 1 "Spread Love" t-shirt sold, Coco + Lala supports Share Our Strengths #NoKidHungry to give 10 meals for kids at home from school in need of food.

Spread Love Not Germs #WashHands4Grands is a Clean Hands movement to help keep grandparents and loved ones everywhere safe. They need us now more than ever!
