About this campaign

Growing up, we just assumed "orbisculate" was a word. Our father, Neil Krieger, had been using the term ever since he invented it back in college to describe that moment when you dig your spoon into a grapefruit and it squirts juice directly into your eye. In fact, we only discovered that the word was made up after losing a $5 bet to a friend over whether or not it was in the dictionary.

Our father passed away in April from Covid-19, and this word is hardly the only legacy he left us. He also taught us the value of finding a way to laugh even in dark times; of following your own path; and of making up your own solution to a problem whenever you don't like the ones in front of you.

So we thought a fitting way to honor his memory would be to try to get his word into the dictionary (plus, maybe it would help us get our $5 back). We're launching a campaign to do exactly that, which you can read all about at www.orbisculate.com. Wearing these T-shirts is one fun way to spread the word, and it's also a way to support a wonderful charity.

Carson's Village
is an organization that helps grieving families in the aftermath of losing a loved one, which you can read all about at www.carsonsvillage.org. The charity helps with everything from funeral arrangements to grief counseling. We've gotten to know them over the last few months and see their commitment to helping those in need, so we have decided to give 100% of the proceeds from our T-shirt sales to them.

Creative way to honor someone. Love the word!

Kimberly Edwards 2 items + $10

My dad died in January 2020. He, like your dad, loved words… collected them voraciously. Only once in my 53 years did I use a word he hadn’t heard. As far as we know, he never made up a word, but I’ll keep you posted! Bless you and your efforts.

I felt the love, my daddy passed away last year, and I love y’all’s story.

i like to make up words. My word is "urticate" which really means "whip with a whip," but our made up definition is: to sort into piles as in separating your change into nickels, dimes, pennies and quarters.

I love the idea that your father making up this word that you thought was real. And now that he is gone you want to honor him by making it a legitimate word.

I teach 4th grade, and I think it's so important for kids to see that anyone can make a difference in the world. Hilary visited our class and inspired many of my students. We want to help spread the word (literally!!).
