July 4th, 2019 at 10:33am, a magnitude 6.4 earthquake quivered over the home town of MatchBack. 
 
Fires immediately broke out, gas lines were ruptured and 13,000 people were left without power in triple digit temperatures.
 
While the ground still rumbled with hundreds of aftershocks, the community still found a way to participate in the Independence Day celebrations. The phrase “Freedom Quake” quickly coined from July 4th shaking.
 
Then, only one day later, on Friday, July 5th 2019, an even bigger 7.1 earthquake violently shook the same town and surrounding areas at 8:19pm.
 
Nearly 10 times more aggressive than the first, the 7.1 quake left the community without power and communication overnight. Many families were displaced and slept outside in fear of another “big one” occurring.
 
It has been several days since the now multiple “Freedom Quakes” struck our home and the community is still putting the pieces back together. 
 
As food, water and shelter is being provided through our first responders, the American Red Cross, and other numerous organizations, matchback.org would also like to participate in the alleviation.
 
With a donation amount of your choosing, “Freedom Quakes” shirts are now available at www.matchback.org.  All donations will help matchback.org continue to print and distribute free shirts and apparel to displaced families in our community. 
 
If you or someone you know is in need of a shirt, hug, or any form of support, stop on by our shop at 138 Balsam St. Ridgecrest, where we will be handing out “Freedom Quakes” shirts to those in need in our community.      

Softest, best fitting tee or its FREE!

Fabric: 60% combed ringspun cotton / 40% polyester jersey, 4.3 oz, 32 singles, slightly heathered, fabric laundered for reduced shrinkage
