An Atlanta-based pastor and momprenuer wants to ensure one thing: that everybody deserves to win. 

Fusing their passions for both faith and football, Cynthia Jackson, the founder of Tiny Tots and Tikes, and her husband Marcus Jackson in January launched Touchdown through Faith subscription boxes

The family is using the Southern tradition of football to uplift communities. 

“We just wanted to figure out a way to inspire people, especially during the still-challenging times, to just keep the faith,” said mom of two Cynthia Jackson, whose products, until now, are typically geared toward children. “We wanted a way to build community and to grow in faith together as a community so that we can all score, so that we can all win and score a touchdown in this game of life.”

Each month, subscribers will receive a faith-based garment, a few surprise items and an inspirational message using a football analogy. Tiny Tots and Tikes started as a faith-based children’s apparel line, so Jackson has an eye for design. The subscription box will contain either a hoodie, T-shirt or bracelet each month boasting a new style. 

Football is like a universal language. People love football, especially here in the South.

Valued at more than $80, the box costs $35 each month. Simply order by visiting the Tiny Tots and Tikes website. February’s box featured a T-shirt, a long-sleeved shirt, a scarf, a pair of earrings and a box of chocolate. 

Jackson, whose husband Marcus played Division I college football until suffering a career-ending injury, said the value of the Touchdown through Faith boxes goes beyond the merchandise. 

“We want to be able to remind people of the love of Christ and of the work that God is still doing work in all of our lives,” Jackson said.
