teetsy t-shirt


I got an e-mail from Scott at Teetsy that was just a link to this page on their site. I’m not sure if he was being lazy or just wanted me to look at the page and make up my own mind rather than him try and persuade me via e-mail.

There is a man that regularly sits outside the Starbucks on the corner of Chicago and Franklin in Chicage (I presume that if you’re from the area you will know where that is), and he will ask passers by for donations. He’s called Tony and I don’t know anything about him, I don’t know what his story is, and I don’t know if he is homeless, hopefully no one will take offense at me putting that in the title, but I felt it was a fair way to illustrate the story.

One night Teetsy printed up 20 t-shirts and just gave them to Tony. He can sell the shirts for as much or as little as he wants. I’m sure I’ve read somewhere that if you’re going to help people on the streets then you don’t give them money, you give them something to do, and that’s exactly what Teetsy are doing.

If you can’t make it to Chicago, and I doubt most of HYAs readership can, you can buy the shirt online for $12 and 100% of that money will be going straight back to Tony.
