The Story Behind Claires Place Foundation + Zappos Team

At the age of 13, Claire Wineland founded Claire’s Place Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing support to children and families affected by cystic fibrosis (CF). Claire lived with cystic fibrosis her entire life.

Claire was an activist, speaker, philanthropist and author. She committed her life to traveling the world and speaking about her experience, from the beautiful and humorous to the painful parts of her life. She inspired all who followed her journey and broke down barriers for those who live every day with a chronic illness.

Claire’s humanity and wisdom beyond her years, always shone through despite how sick she was. Claire loved sharing her unique outlook on life and raising awareness of the needs of children living with CF. Her inspirational outlook led her to be a social media star and TEDx Speaker.

Claire’s messages were her way of spreading good and kindness in this world. She wanted to take her life lessons beyond the podium and social media feeds to be more personal. That’s when she came up with the idea to create t-shirts to be billboards for her most popular quotes.

Last year, as she was preparing for her lung transplant, she partnered with Zappos to create these powerful t-shirts. She was absolutely thrilled when Zappos offered to assist her and worked closely with their design team to bring them to life. When she was just about to go in for her lung transplant she saw the final products and was beaming! Of course we wish she was here with us to see the t-shirts being proudly worn, but we are so thankful to everyone who made it possible and that her messages will carry on and support the young CF patients.


The specific purpose of Claire’s Place Foundation is to provide heart felt help to children and young adults diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, as well as their families, for the purpose of improving their quality of life.  We hope to accomplish this by heightening awareness and providing education, skills, financial and emotional support.
