Each TSG Quote Tee is inspired by the meaning of the simple good of our students. Each year we select 5 students' messages of 'the simple good' to put on our quote tees for a limited series release. The tees represent the various communities we serve and are selected through a public vote in order to amplify the voices of our youth & support their TSG Youth Art Programs. 

This "Create & Inspire" Tee is inspired by TSG Youth Ambassador, Yoselin A.  from Brighton Park. Check out her meaning of #thesimplegood below!

My ‘simple good’ is creating and inspiring others because I like doing art. My ‘simple good’ was inspired by my friends and family and others that inspired me. I showed my ‘simple good’ in my artwork by showing art in a canvas is being creative and telling others to be inspired by others. I plan on using my meaning of the ‘simple good’ to improve my community and change the world by saying art is not just to inspire others to make something in the world that is changing the world. This is important to me because I love art and I want to be an artist when I grow up. A simple good question I would ask others is: What will you do to inspire others?

This "Equality" Tee is inspired by TSG Youth Ambassador, Deshawn F.  from Roseland. Check out his meaning of #thesimplegood below!

My ‘simple good’ is equality because I believe that people should be treated fair and have equal opportunities no matter their race, age, or even sexual preference. My ‘simple good’ was inspired by the fact that treating others inappropriately/or discriminating against them based on their beliefs. I plan on using my meaning of the ‘simple good’ to improve my community and change the world by changing others ideals that have been drilled into them by others. I say drilled because one doesn't just decide to discriminate against another. Something has to lead up to that moment or someone has influenced them into that mindset. Your beliefs shouldn't override what they like to do and what makes them happy in life. A simple good question I would ask others is: What thing in the world do you believe should be changed/fixed?

This “Inner Peace" Tee is inspired by TSG Youth Ambassador, Kimberlyn B.  from Kilbourn Park. Check out her meaning of #thesimplegood below!

My simple good is inner peace. It is very important to take time to care for ourselves and nature can play a big role in our life to get peace. My 'simple good' was inspired by a rainy and gloomy day. I showed my simple good to show the refreshment a picture of nature can give you just by looking at it. This is important to me because when I am overwhelmed or stressed out I go out for a walk. I sometimes try to appreciate those quiet moments especially when my house tends to be very loud most of the time. I plan on using my meaning of the simple good to improve our community by reminding everyone that taking a break is not being lazy, it's self love. A simple good question I would ask others is: Where do you find your inner peace?

This "Paz en La Villita" Tee is inspired by TSG Youth Ambassador, Brisa A.  from Little Village. Check out her meaning of #thesimplegood below!

My ‘simple good’ is Paz en La Villita because we need peace in La Villita because there is a lot of danger. My ‘simple good’ was inspired by the shootings in La Villita which can cause a lot of disaster with the families who just lost a member. I showed my simple good in my artwork by describing how people want peace instead of violence. I plan on using my meaning of the ‘simple good’ to improve my community and change the world by having more peace in La Villita and stopping violence. This is important to me because gun violence is a daily tragedy affecting the lives of individuals around the world. More than 500 people die every day because of violence committed with firearms. A simple good question I would ask others is: Is there a cure for violence?

"My simple good is making the world better because there is too much fighting and hurt in the world, especially right now. My simple good came from connections to seeing others try to make life better. I depicted my simple good in my work by trying to portray the idea that art can create various emotions in different people. I plan on using my simple good in my community by showing people how art can change their mindset. This is important because art can really help people."

"My simple good is to be caring and courageous. I feel this way because when someone actually cares for me it gets me really happy and it also gives me courage to do the right thing. I feel like this is very important because we all know that we have to care for each other and it’s really nice to do something good for others and see them smile. It is also harder for the other people because if there close to the person that is suffering it is hard for them to see that person cry or be sad. I think my work will impact the Little Village community because it will make people reflect and communicate with others. I think the Rwanda students will gain courage and also many happinesses from my artwork."

This TSG Tee is inspired by TSG Youth Ambassador, Joeal A., from Pilsen, Check out her meaning of #thesimplegood below!

"My ‘simple good’ is growth because I want to continue growing in different areas, but in a proper way. I don’t want to rush the process because in doing so I won’t end up with the results I’m seeking. My ‘simple good’ was inspired by the quote  "He Who Would Climb a Ladder Must Begin at the Bottom."  My ‘simple good’ is shown in my photo because when building a skyscraper you always start from the bottom to end with positive results. However, starting from the top is unrealistic and will have horrible results. Just like in real life, when you start something you have to take all the necessary steps to accomplish it. You can’t just start from the top while skipping all the proper steps to reach there. This also showcases my journey in growing without rushing things. I plan on using my meaning of the ‘simple good’ to improve my community and change the world by using my growth as a person to inspire my community to do better as a whole, and to show them it’s not impossible to achieve our goals. This is important to me because growing has always been a part of my life, and I hope to continue to grow as a person to help myself and those around me."

    "My ‘simple good’ is saving the earth because I know that many people don't throw away trash properly, and it ends up in the oceans. My ‘simple good’ was inspired by looking outside, and seeing lots of plastic bags flying around, or seeing bottled waters out on the sidewalk. I depicted my ‘simple good’ in my art by drawing my message using pencil and colored pencils. I plan on using my meaning of the ‘simple good’ to improve my community and change the world by showing people that we aren't properly throwing away our trash, and there isn't an “Earth B” for us. This is important to me because I want everyone to take care of our planet, not just your community. Again, we don’t have an Earth B. Thank you!"

    This "Self Love" Tee is inspired by TSG Youth Ambassador, Destiny F.  from  Austin Check out her meaning of #thesimplegood below!

    "My ‘simple good’ is beauty is not what society thinks of you, but what you think of yourself because the true beauty in a person is their self-confidence. My ‘simple good’ was inspired by beauty standards. I depicted my ‘simple good’ in my comic by drawing two best friends, both different yet beautiful. The only difference though is that one of them is not confident in themselves. For her to truly feel pretty, her friend will tell her about self-confidence and to stop comparing herself to others. I plan on using my meaning of the ‘simple good’ to improve my community and change the world by promoting self-love and confidence towards individuals who need to know who they are. This is important to me because society had blinded most of us into thinking we do not fit, that because we’re not the clone of the next person we are alienated. But to change that everyone needs self-confidence in themselves to feel beautiful by the next person."

I made a collage of people and quotes that relate to the beauty in the struggle. I plan on improving my community by helping people realize the good in seemingly bad neighborhoods and situations.

My artwork can impact the Little Village community by showing people helping each other. We need to help clean up our community and get rid of all the gun violence. The Rwanda students will see that we are from the same planet so we are equal are we can take care of the planet together. Even through we are far away and of a different race we are we should care about one another and our world."
