Shirts For A Cure: Band Merch + Charity = Good idea

by Andy on July 17, 2008


Here’s an idea that makes you tip your head on its side and go “huh, that’s clever.” Shirts For A Cure wants to fight breast cancer using one of my favourite mediums; the t-shirt!

Rock bands (mostly pop-punk/emo) donate a t-shirt design to Shirts For A Cure, who then sell the tee and give the proceeds to charity. The tees are a very reasonable $12 a piece and I *think* that all $12 goes to charity. The range of bands is pretty impressive too, here’s a little selection from the range of more than 150:

Alkaline Trio
Blink 182
Fall Out Boy
My Chemical Romance
Midtown
Plain White T’s
hellogoodbye

Those were the ones I thought were pretty notable (Midtown aren’t really that big, but I love them), so clearly this project isn’t just little bands no ones heard of, they’re bands that have large followings, so hopefully they’re raising a boatload of cash for charity.
