When coming up with 21 Pineapples, we wanted something bold. Something that represents CEO Nate Simon’s spunk and moxie. We chose 21 Pineapples as the number 21 represents the 21st chromosome. Our friends with Down Syndrome have an extra 21st chromosome and this is what makes them magical. Why pineapples you may ask? Not only are pineapples an expression of friendship and welcoming hospitality, but this beautiful fruit is adorned by its own exquisite crown. After all, don’t we all deserve to wear a crown? We want to change the way others perceive people with Down Syndrome & other special abilities one Hawaiian Shirt at a time. A percentage of all sales will go directly to support Down Syndrome organizations throughout the world. Some see a disability, we see endless abilities.
