What's behind the name?
I'm third.
Our story.
Our name "Ani Shlishi" -- Hebrew for "I am third" -- was inspired by Ross Freeland, a former high school teacher and assistant baseball coach at Evanston Township High School.Ross, who lost his life to cancer in 2016, instilled in his students the belief thatfirst comes "the greater good"; second, comes "others"; and then, finally, “I am third." ​​ Since our humble beginnings, Ani Shlishi has grown from sorting clothes in its employees' personal apartments, to pop up shops, to brick and mortar locations. All guided by Ross's example of generosity. ​
