I don't know who came with the logo, but kudos to whoever did. I think is wonderful that hands entwine to form the W. It simply reflects our mission here.
Thanks again to @Jess, @Justin, @Wifeless @Bluebird @Baylee627 @Just Jen  @LisaPop  @Shelby   for taking the time to provide us our safe heaven!

I can claim no responsibility for the awesome logo. I want to give credit where credit is due for this space and the logo, but want to make sure the member is okay with receiving heap tons of praise and thanks first. ;)

The widda logo came from the Widdas Gone Wild Bago a few years ago.  We started using it on our bago t-shirts.  I'm not positive, but I think Lewis came up with it.  It could have been a collaborative effort.  (I think we had been teasingly using it as our "gang" sign.  =)

Very nice logo.  Just found the actual logo on this company's website, under 'Logo Design'...

So, being new to all of this, apparently I'm not familiar with all the lingo.  Is "Widda" an acronym or is it just slang or ebonics for 'Widow'?

Maybe a play on the noun Wicca. Not to suggest we're all pagans although to be a widow(er) means belonging to a group that no one chooses to hang with. I wondered if the pinky swear of the logo suggests that fellow widow(er)s will try to honor, support and encourage one another without malice, judgments or intolerance.

Widdas, wids, widsters. All nicknames we have developed over the years. Just a play on widow that includes widowers

Not from "Wicca", just a slang form of widow.

Funny you should mention that. Have any of you gone to urbandictionary.com and typed "widda" in the search box? It's fairly amusing.

Then again, I'd put the wids around here up against anyone else who thinks they have cred.

widda
1.a true gangster.
2.A lover of rap music.
3.A rebel without a cause.
4.A loose cannon

I suppose 3 and 4 are kind of true. 1 is doable but 2 is a defenitely NO!

I have a 17 year old boy...  if he is driving that's my only choice of music.  Widda or not, NO WAY!

That's hilarious!!!  3 and 4 have definitely been true in this "widda-ed" life!

Yes! It definitely was a collaborative effort with us at the Widdas Gone Wild Bago. We adopted the gesture as our "gang" symbol. I took it a step further and asked my good friend, Judah, at judahcreative.com to digitize our sign into a logo. He took our idea and came up with the heart with the crossed fingers to add to it. I loved it! Threw some cash at him and received the logo as my own. :D

I am glad everyone likes it! And no, it is not a play on the word Wicca, :) To me, the heart represents the love we have for our widda family...the struggles that we help carry each other through...the many hugs given at bagos... Over all, the logo represents the bond that we have in our club that no one wants to be in.

Thanks for calling attention to the logo! I am really glad that everyone likes it! :D
