Face This T shirt collection 2014 lr 480x483 Internationally renowned artists design T shirts for charity using Indonesian kids’ drawings

Face This 2014 Cecilia Carlstedt T shirt men close 480x640 Internationally renowned artists design T shirts for charity using Indonesian kids’ drawings

Nine renowned illustrative artists from around the world selflessly teamed up with the Face This foundation and designed the 2014 T-shirt collection for the Dutch based charity. All artists created their T-shirt with drawings made by underprivileged kids living in Bogor, Indonesia. The tees are available through facethis.org and the profits made will be used to improve the community center of the kids. The artists also donated their original drawings to Face This which it will use to generate extra funding for the kids in Bogor. Dutch top photographer Jaap Vliegenthart photographed the 2014 Face This T-shirt collection.

For artist Ana Benaroya the collaboration was truly inspiring: ‘I love the Face This process and to me the kids’ drawings are inspiring to work with. It’s what I aspire to achieve in my drawings.’ The artists involved are:

Marguerite Sauvage (Louis Vuitton, YSL, Vogue, Elle)
Cecilia Carlstedt (Victoria’s Secret, Paul Smith, Victoria Beckham)
Billie Jean (Stella McCartney, Nike, Yoko Ono)
Kate Gibb (The Chemical Brothers, Levi’s, Adidas)
Ana Benaroya (Burton, Ralph Lauren, New York Times)
Dan Page (O Magazine, New York Times, Marie Claire)
David Despau (The New Yorker, Burton, Warner Bros.)
KT Smail (Converse, Macy’s, Seventeen)
Frida Wannerberger (Tetra Pak, Sommerset)

Indonesian kids’ drawings

Face This asked the artists to work with drawings made by the kids who visit the Asy-Syifa community center in Bogor. All proceeds will be used to improve the community center which educates around 70 kids. ‘We visited the kids in February and organized a drawing session with them. We shared their art with the artists eventually resulting in a stunning T-shirt collection,’ says Jos van der Hoek, founder of Face This.

Kids interviewing the artists

The Indonesian kids collaborated with the artists in designing the new Face This collection. But their drawings weren’t the kids’ only contribution. They also did a great job in interviewing every artist. For example about their designs, their favourite food and about bringing cats into space.

Exclusive giveaways

The artists donated their original drawings to Face This. These will be used to generate additional support for the kids. The foundation will set up auctions and arrange exclusive giveaways for people who ordered a tee in order to get a hand on these original artworks.

Photoshoot

Dutch top photographer Jaap Vliegenthart, who works for clients like Vodafone, Citroën and Panasonic willingly captured the 2014 Face This T-shirts on camera. The models from the international model agency De Boekers also voluntarily joined forces.

Andy: Very cool concept and some nice tees too!

Rapanui team up with the WWF

What a cool collaboration, the eco-warriors of Rapanui (who recently moved to a factory on the Isle of Wight that ticks all the green boxes) and the WWF, one of the most high-profile charities in the world, Rapanui sure do have a knack for being involved with impressive brands.

The designs are impressive too, the ones of animals are perfectly fine, very wearable, but it’s the photo tees that interest me the most, they get across the message of endangered animals without being too forceful about it and creating a shirt that genuinely can start a conversation. Tees are £19 a piece with £3 of that going directly to the WWF (there’s also some sweatshirts for £40 with a £6 charitable contribution. Naturally, the tees are made from organic cotton, sustainably and ethically produced, and printed with water based dyes.

4 wide web 480x180 Brave & The Bold Apparel Review : WearBrave http://www.wearbrave.com/

I love getting the opportunity to review fab small companies and it’s even better when it’s for an awesome local company! The lady who runs it is genuinely lovely and even makes an awesome charity tee too.

Firstly the tees centre around the company name ‘Brave & the Bold’! All the tees feature this memorable and catchy slogan and I like that this all flows within the brand. It makes the line noticeable, I also quite like sometimes wearing tees similar to my partner but not quite the same and I think this is a cute way round it.

As with lots of companies there are a few less girly fit tees than man fit ones. Although I don’t feel that’s an issue so much anymore, on the high street there are a lot more loose fit tees for girls, probably because we wear so many leggings now. I know I feel better when I have my bottom covered up. The girly fit tees I got to test out were ladies ‘Brave Logo T-shirt‘ and ‘Fearless T-shirt‘. I liked them both, they were extremely comfortable, and both washed extremely well. I’d say they are a standard fit, I’m a bit chested UK12 and a Medium was fine for me. I personal favourite was the ‘Fearless’ on, I particularly liked the grey tee and I think it just felt a bit more sporty. The print looks extremely light on the bottom image but I think it is mostly because it was such a bright day when I shot in them!

NRG 4233 480x318 Brave & The Bold Apparel Review : WearBrave http://www.wearbrave.com/

The gentlemen’s t-shirts that my husband shot in were ‘Brave Wings T-shirt‘ and the ‘Arrows T-shirt‘. My husband normally wears a large because he’s got a bit of a belly and I think these were also a standard fit. The feel of them were thick, but not too thick, and just super soft. I’ve only washed the red ‘Wings‘ one but the print is perfect and it actually feels even softer after a wash. I can already tell that the Wings one is going to be one of husband’s new favourite tees!

The charity tee is called the ‘Ross‘ t-shirt, this tee is in memory of a strong, brave, young man who was diagnosed with terminal cancer at the far too young age of 32. 20% of the sales from this t-shirt go to Cancer Research UK. I’m sure pretty much most of those reading this blog will have been affected by cancer at some point so this is the chance to get lovely tee and support an excellent cause. I think this khaki colour really works well to set the ‘Ross‘ see apart from all the rest.

Finally, because I really love the summery colours, and it brings about the illusion of an early summer, I really love the Limited Edition Bahama T-shirt! It’s basically a beach in a t-shirt, I think this would look super cute just with some denim shorts!

bahamabold 1024x1024 Brave & The Bold Apparel Review : WearBrave http://www.wearbrave.com/

I love companies like this with original ideas and not scared to try out ideas like the Bahama tee! Highly recommend dropping this company a ‘like’ or a ‘follow’! Give them a chance!

Wolves For The Win at Threadless

by Andy on February 28, 2014

9423448 11677039 sswcp004 l 480x480 Wolves For The Win at Threadless

There is a new shirt design on Threadless that represents a great cause. If this design wins, proceeds from every sale will go towards endangered wolves. Everyone knows about wolves but not many know how much their lives are really in danger. They need humans on their side to stand for the Endangered Species Act, slow climate change by utilizing more renewable energy, and help defend their natural habitats. Spread the word and vote for for this design here: http://www.threadless.com/threadless/wolves-for-the-win/

Andy: I don’t normally post abut designs that are up for voting at Threadless but this one is for a good cause so why the devil not.

Keep it Straight Up for a Cause [Submitted]

Keep it straight up   front 2bc21c6c fe51 44b8 8add 7429d736ab36 1024x1024 Keep it Straight Up for a Cause [Submitted]

The Keep it Straight Up Tee is a conversation starter. It was designed by OriginalBOS, a company that raises awareness and funds for testicular cancer support through stainless steel whiskey chillers and now, T-shirts. The slogan reflects the company’s attitude when it comes to drinks and testicular cancer and hopefully sparks some conversations about men’s health. It may not be designed by cutting-edge artists, but it does support a very important cause for men. Fifteen percent of all profits goes directly to funding testicular cancer research.

Andy: Thanks for the submission!

Miscito t-shirts (for kids) [Submitted]

by Andy on December 16, 2013

Red Shirt Boys W Bkgrnd 480x320 Miscito t shirts (for kids) [Submitted]
Love at first sight W Bkgrnd2 480x320 Miscito t shirts (for kids) [Submitted]

Miscito is a brand with a powerful message. While we are dedicated to creating quality clothing, we are here to make more than just a fashion statement. We want Miscito kids to understand that our brand is about relevancy. It is about the world we live in. And it’s about how we are all inseparably connected, for better or for worse.

We begin our journey with 4 limited edition t-shirts. They are original, quirky and all feature distinct interpretations of our Miscito hero. They have been designed by unique artists who are committed to making kids stand out! Miscito products are designed exclusively for children and our fun designs will make kids the envy of their friends.

Our goal is to create a stylish brand that transcends time and trends. We believe that children’s clothing should be timeless. In this throwaway society it’s too easy to buy cheap and disposable outfits for a handful of uses; we want our brand to stick. We make our products from the finest materials so that they won’t wear out, and we do that for a reason. We want Miscito to last, we want parents to get the best value for their money and we want children to take satisfaction in owning a quality product. Miscito is quality with a message.

Miscito brand t-shirts come with a world-scope message that kids can bond with and that parents can be proud to support—malaria awareness. Most malaria deaths are among children and Miscito plans to donate a part of all its proceeds to a worthy non-profit organization involved in the worldwide fight against the disease.

Andy: Looks like these guys were meant to be opening yesterday but from the looks of their site they’re not quite ready. Hopefully somethng will be up soon though since it’s a pretty cool idea.

philippines fundraising post 403x403 Empathy for the Philippines charity t shirt from Springleap
Cool shirt and a great cause with all sales from this shirt going to UNICEF Philippines to help in the wake of the massive typhoon last month. Interestingly, well, for me at least, this is a Springleap shirt but it’s actually being sold on the crowdfunding platform Teespring and I wasn’t previously aware of a connection between the two brands. The shirt is $21, printed on American Apparel, and they’ve only sold 11 of them so far so they need to get a move on if they’re going to hit that goal of 1000 shirts to get it printed.

On Thanksgiving this year, TeeFury is going to be donating a portion of every shirt sold to Convoy of Hope. The design is something that was done in house and that way it allows us to give a larger portion over to a really great charity.

This all started when we were planning on what to do this year for Thanksgiving at TeeFury. All of knew we wanted to help out in someway but weren’t sure how that would come about. Well, after seeing all the devastation that happened in the Philippines, we knew that this is a cause we should help out with. So, we looked around and found Convoy of Hope is doing a lot of amazing work in the Philippines currently and decided that’s where we could help out best.

Our design is meant to celebrate the Philippines and it’s iconic flag. We’re really excited to be working with Convoy of Hope to help out and, if nothing else, please go to their website and give directly to help out.

Also, check out our homepage for an interview with filipino artist ZeroBriant about the Philippines and TeeFury.

Andy: Very cool of them. Please note that the TeeFury link above is auto-generated with my affiliate code, so don’t use that link if you want to buy this since I don’t want to benefit from their charity shirt, please use this direct link instead.

500x500 2 480x480 DBH Collective Store Helps Raise Funds for Typhoon Relief [Submitted]

Only a few short days ago, Super Typhoon Haiyan (local name Yolanda) tore through the Pacific islands of the Philippines leaving a path of destruction and despair. Despite the geographic space that separates us all, now is the time to come together to acknowledge our fellow humans throughout the world. As the days pass we have the opportunity to unite as humans to show our support for those in need, to help them heal and rebuild their communities.

With the help of Design By Humans artists in the Philippines, we have created a DBH Collective store to do our part to support the relief effort. Participating artists who are closest to the devastation have volunteered to donate their royalty payment and Design By Humans will donate 100% of the proceeds to the American Red Cross Typhoon Appeal.

You will find artwork from Filipino artists like, Pinkstorm, Zerobriant, Song, DesignsbyReg and Qimstudio who have all volunteered to donate their time, art, and money through royalties.

Design By Humans inspires life, strengthens humanity and we encourage you to join with us and spread the word to help our fellow humans.

Andy: I had been planning to write up a roundup of charity tees today but time has got away from me so it’s great that DBH submitted this info. Obviously I don’t want to be profiting from this post, so please don’t click the other links (which are auto-inserted with my affiliate code) click here instead.

When it comes to depressing things, murdering babies is very near the top of the list, but the reality is that in China baby girl’s are killed (or abandoned, or aborted) because of the one-child policy (to put it in a nutshell, girls earn less money, and so can’t help support the family later in life). This week, Sevenly are supporting All Girls Allowed, a charity that provides at-risk children with food, clothing and medical aid.

As usual, the designs are great, and $7 from each item goes to the charity.

LNLxFCE 480x480 Pay It Forward with Livin Life Co [Submitted]

Last December we, Livin Life Co, partnered with Feeding Children Everywhere, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, for our first ever Pay It Forward Charity Drive. The response was awesome, and after some thinking we have decided to make it ongoing instead of just once a year. From now on for each item purchased, we will donate part of our proceeds providing four meals to help feed children in the USA.

Andy: Nice, thanks for the submission!

Not that rape gets mentioned a lot on HYA, but I think any other time it’s been mentioned has been with my disgust at an offensive t-shirt design, so when I saw that Sevenly were supporting Sheltering Wings (a rape support charity) this week I was curious to see how they would deal with it sensitively. Well, I don’t know what the deer or the phoenix have to do with the charity but they are certainly nice designs that are very wearable. I don’t know if I should delve into it too much, but is a boxing themed design really appropriate? It looks cool, but it does take the ‘fight for their lives’ tagline and make it seem like physical violence is the answer, which seems like an unlikely message for a charity to be putting out there.
