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.
Very nice design indeed, with 100% of net proceeds going to UNICEF to ” help provide shelter, clean water, medicine and nutrition to survivors of this devastating storm.”

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.
Designer Lunchboxbrain, who has been featured on HYA a few times in the past, has decided to get in on the Movember and No Shave November spirit by giving 100% of his cut at Society6 and Creative Market to the Prostate Cancer Foundation throughout November. New designs are also going to be released over the next week so be sure to check it out now and later to pick up some cool artwork and also help out a good cause. Good on ‘ya LBB!
‘Having worked alongside The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity on their latest commercial and seeing first hand the incredible work they do, the Papertwin team were super inspired to do something more to ensure that The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre is able to continue to give the best possible care.
For the next three weeks, not only will Papertwin be sporting its finest shade of pastel pink, but we will also be selling our very own ‘THINK’ t-shirts.’
“By purchasing one of our tees, not only will you be supporting the amazing work that goes on over at The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity, but you will also be playing your part in spreading the word. Awareness is vital to early diagnosis, and simply by wearing our tees, telling a friend, or showing your support for the campaign, you encourage people to listen, THINK and check.
Even if you can’t buy a t-shirt. Don’t worry, you can still play your part by sharing the campaign or sporting our THINK cover photo or profile image. We cannot do this without your help, so please, get involved and let’s work together to ensure this crucial work in the fight against cancer is able to continue.”

Andy: Worthy campaign and a nice tee too!
Nice designs with the added benefit that $5 from every sale will go towards fighting prostate cancer. Shirts are $22 for the round neck and $26 for the V-neck and available now at Fuzzy Ink.
There isn’t much more to add to that title, there’s no coupon to use, every sale will contribute to the donation from Tee and Toast.
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.
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!
This post isn’t a submission but I want to share the story that was in the e-mail I received from Sammy at Connect and Spread Love:
My company, Connect and Spread Love, is a fashion company aimed at inspiring and motivating people to be the best person they can be. We have inspirational shirts and bracelets for now. I will be releasing sweaters, long-sleeve shirts, hats, and beanies during the winter time. I came up with idea to create this line when I was battling depression after pretty much losing my way. I dropped out of law school, was struggling financially, I dealt with countless sleepless nights, and battled my eating disorders and lost. Although I had a lot of things to be happy about, I just couldn’t seem to smile. I was unemployed, undereducated, and lost in the world.
Luckily, I dug out of that hole and came up with a concept with that person in mind. I truly want to motivate and inspire others to never be the way I was, or worse. A portion of my sales will go to some foundations. Currently, I am working with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
I hear a lot of stories from people about how they started their business, usually it’s along the lines of “we couldn’t find anything we wanted in stores so decided to start our own label” which is fine (though I never believe it, everyone has brands they like), but it’s really great to see a genuinely inspirational story about how someone took a painful part of their life and are channeling it into something positive both for themselves and others.
When Sammy first got in touch a few weeks ago all that was available on the site was logo gear, and with all the best will in the world these days you need more than logo gear for a charity t-shirt company. It was great to see that over the past week a load of new designs got added to the store, they’re pre-orders, but some of them will be shipping in a couple of weeks, and it gives me a much better idea of where this brand will be going and what they’re trying to do.
I’m really late posting this weeks designs from Sevenly, but you’ve still got a few days to pick something up, and this week $7 from each item will be going to Lettercase, a charity that helps provide information to support to parents who are expecting a baby with Down Syndrome. The other big news at Sevenly is that the guy with a long, flowing mane of hair (which I think is just tied back in the shot above) has shaved off his magnificent mustache!
And that, ladies and gentleman, is a title worthy of a very local newspaper, clearly I’ve missed my calling!
This week at Sevenly they are supporting the charity 4PAWS For Ability, an orangisation that provides service dogs for children that suffer from seizures. I was unsure what the connection was, but apparently the dogs are really good at detecting when a child is having a seizure (which apparently isn’t always obvious to a parent) and the dogs are also a great comfort to the kids which helps reduce the frequency and severity of seizures. Sounds like a very worthy cause to me, and has resulted in some lovely designs. Cool to see them complimenting the usual range of tees and tank tops with that classy dog leash and even a dog-sized hoodie, even if I do roll my eyes when I see a dog dressed in anything.
As usual $7 from each sale goes directly to the charity and the designs are available in more styles than those shown above.
I’m sure that a lot of you will have heard of TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors), a charity that helps the families of people that have lost someone who was serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. There’s almost a danger of t-shirt designs around this subject being too patriotic, but Sevenly have managed to create designs that can appeal across national lines since I’d wear these even though I’m not American.
Polar Bears and America. Together At Last!
Twice As Warm is a clothing brand that matches each purchase with a donation of a new clothing item to a person in need.
They just launched a limited-edition t-shirt design called POLARBEARICANA.
Each purchase of this design provides a new clothing item to a child in need from Bright Beginnings, an organization in DC that helps over 90 homeless children.
The sale of this shirt ends on June 5th, and once it’s gone, it’s gone.
Check them out at TwiceAsWarm.com

Andy: I don’t like this design, but even I’m not enough of a jerk to complain about a t-shirt design that will directly help homeless children.
Givve are a charity t-shirt company along the same lines of Sevenly, picking a charity and selling designs specifically produced to help raise them some money. Givve are based in Omaha, Nebraska and at the moment they’re keeping it local with their charitable efforts, offering $6.55 from the sale of each of these shirts (and a couple of other designs on the site) to the Humane Society of Nebraska. It’s a good design (provided you like dogs, of course) and even if you’re out of Nebraska, as most people are, it’ll feel good to help out in another part of the world.

Three gorgeous designs as usual at Sevenly to send $7 per item towards Love Without Boundaries, a charity that gives orphaned children with birth defects the surgery they need and help to give them a family in a permanent home.
