HOW TO TIE A BOW TIE


1


Hang the tie around your neck. Pull one end of the tie so it hangs about an inch below the other end.


2


Cross the longer end over the shorter and pass up it up through the loop, making a loose knot. Tighten the knot to fit comfortably around your neck.


3


Make the front loop of the bow by doubling up the dangling end hori- zontally. Hold the loop between your thumb and index finger.


4


Drop the other end of the tie over the front of the bow you have just created.


5


Double the middle hanging part back on itself, and poke that new loop through the existing loop behind the bow tie. Pull the new loop tight.


6


Pull the folded ends to tighten the bow and cre- ate the shape you prefer. To remove the bow tie, pull the straight ends.

for one and for many When linebacker Dhani Jones got drafted into the New York Giants from the University of Michigan in 2000, a friend told him he had to start wearing a bow tie if he wanted to be any- body in New York. Jones didn’t think much of the good-natured advice, but when that friend was later diagnosed with cancer, Jones started wearing a bow tie in silent solidarity. The friend eventually recovered, and Jones began to wonder how a bow tie might bring visibility to other causes. Chad Williamson, who was then in graduate school for social work, invited Jones for an interview for a series about ath- letes involved in the community. Somewhere along the line, Williamson asked about the bow tie, and the two started talking about it as a concept for nonprofits. The rest is history.
