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.

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.

Costiness=$22 Buy it at Givve

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.

I am constantly impressed by the quality of designs at Sevenly, but it’s so depressing hearing about all the people that they’re helping with their charity donations. Can’t a guy just bury his head in the sand and enjoy the fantastic artwork?

This week $7 from every tee sale if going to the Polaris Project, which works to help fight against human trafficking and modern-day slavery.

3.12 480x227 1 shirt can saves the lives of 14 African children at Sevenly this week

I’m usually fairly cynical about charity t-shirt sites, Sevenly has proven to be an exception since they always (always!) have good looking tees and give a good portion of the shirt cost to charity, but the effect that this weeks donation can give has really floored me. As usual, buying a shirt from Sevenly will result in $7 going to their chosen charity of the week, which this week is End7, a charity dedicated to eliminating seven neglected tropical diseases by 2020, a lofty goal, but why aim low when you’re dealing with diseases?

You’d think it would be quite expensive protect children from seven different diseases, but it’s actually just 50c, and that’s not for one dose, that’s protection for a whole year, so your $7 will ensure that 14 kids don’t get “elephantiasis, river blindness, trachoma, snail fever, hookworm, whipworm and roundworm.” It’s amazing just how much of a difference such a small amount of money can make.

Also, the designs look great!

Sevenly have teamed up with Next Door (a charity fighting domestic abuse) to raise some money for their important work. As usual the designs are top notch, they seem to always have a solid line-up of designs over at Sevenly. $7 from each sale goes directly to the charity so if you like any of the designs then pick one up and feel better about yourself for helping someone out!

Sevenly is a t-shirt company that focus on a different cause every week, releasing different designs in support of a single charity that is usually centred around a cause. This week the charity is The Invisible Girl Project, which rescues and protects girls in India. India is a society where the young help to support the old, but it’s also a country where women face many economic disadvantages to men in the workplace, this has created the horrific situation in which young girls (some just newborns) are abandoned or killed by their parents or family because they are seen as not being able to provide value to the family (I’m not an expert so I may have got a little bit of that wrong, but I think that’s the general gist of it). This of course isn’t the case everywhere in India, but there are places where this practice occurs, presumably in the very poor regions where having to feed and raise another child is seen as impossible by the mother. It is inredibly sad and one of those things that makes you realise just how easy your life is.

Clearly, the t-shirts are very well designs, there’s some beautiful typography in there and they’re all very wearable, but I think that I would just find them to be too sad. Imagine having to tell the story every time that someone asked you about your cool shirt? I guess that’s me burying my head in the sand a bit, but I’ve got to be honest and say what came to mind when I saw these. Still, if you’re a bigger man (or woman) than I and want to help give this issue more exposure whilst donating $7 from each purchase to the charity then I recommend you head over and check out the different garment options.

Threadless : New and Reprinted (04.03.13)

by DeeHYA on March 4, 2013

0403 480x339 Threadless : New and Reprinted (04.03.13)

Ooh Threadless your website still freaks me out, I much preferred it before all of the changes, I simply do not like change! Some pretty cool newbie and reprinted tees on the site though, I’m also particularly loving their Toy Story Collection.

Speaking of Toy Story one of my fave parts of the move is the bits involving the aliens.  Teealiens by Sinan Ozdemir is very simple but sums up the move really well in one tee, I reckon about 90% of people will get the movie from this. Absolutely delighted they are doing this in baby and toddler sizes, not sure why they’ve missed out kids though.

teealien 480x347 Threadless : New and Reprinted (04.03.13)

Another green tee for you in this blogette! Mixing together Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and Doctor Who, I think I just had a Threadless-gasm! There is nothing I don’t like about this tee, it’s super original and Adventure Awaits by Karen Hallion is sure to be one of those tees that is reprinted again and again.

adventure 480x347 Threadless : New and Reprinted (04.03.13)

On now for something a bit darker in colour, I Met A Robot by Danny Burgess looks expensive, I think it is because of the combo of Brown with a Goldy colour print. Sadly this hasn’t been reprinted for girls, looks pretty cool on the hoody too.

imet 480x347 Threadless : New and Reprinted (04.03.13)

Feel like it’s cheating blogging this tee, it’s an oldie but a goodie though. I really want it, my Xbox avatar has it for cryin’ out loud! Mister Mittens’ Big Adventure by Joe Van Wetering is a Threadless fave, it’s an explosion of colour and kitty with hex vision joy. There is nothing not to love about this tee

Charity Tee Alert! Invasion by Jose Pablo Ingles Casao is a lovely monotone City Scape with Space Invaders all over it. 25% of sales from each of these tees go to support The Leapyear Project. I’m somewhat confused about what the charity does from the site but I think it’s helping people achieve their aims.

Lastly, ha! I got to type Threadless into Threadless. I got sent one of these awesome quality tees. I can’t get over how much I love it, I love having ‘Threadless’ emblazoned on my wabs! It’s amazing and all Threadless fans need one. Word. This is Threadless Tee by Threadless! OOoooh loads of Threadless in that paragraph.

If I were to be completely honest, and I might as well be because this is my site, I don’t really care for the C&CCC crew neck. If you’re closer to the brand and a supporter of Coffee & Cigarettes then you’re probably going to like it, but there’s not enough there for a casual fan like me since it’s just a circle and a bit of text. The hoodie on the other hand is a different matter altogether, it’s still a circle and text but it’s just so much more interesting. It’s $40 for the hoodie, and the same for the crew neck.

Apart from releasing clothes C&CCC have also been doing their bit for charity by releasing a compilation of punk, hardcore and indie brands to benefit a hunger charity called Action Against Hunger, which I wholeheartedly recommend you check out here: http://www. coffeeandcigarettesclothingco. bandcamp.com

Post image for “I STILL LOVE NY” Hurricane Sandy relief T-Shirt by Sebastian Errazuriz

I know that Hurricane Sandy is largely a memory for many of us outside the East coast of the USA, but I am quite sure that life there for a lot of people is still very tough, so even though me posting this Sandy Relief shirt is a bit late, it is a really great looking shirt that takes one of the few truly iconic t-shirt designs and puts a meaningful twist on it. Nicely done.

Costiness=$40 Buy it at Grey Area

Post image for Goodjoe aiming to raise $99,000 to grow their site and help more non-profits

GJ collab chris red card fold 5.25 mockup 480x480 Goodjoe aiming to raise $99,000 to grow their site and help more non profits
So far in their existence charitable crowdsourced design competition Goodjoe have raised more than $100,000 for non-profit organisations. That is fantastic, but I get the feeling from this new campaign that they want to kick things up a gear and do much much more to help charities and those in the need.

Goodjoe have launched a massive campaign transforming their homepage into a Kickstarter-esque project page aiming to raise a whopping $99,000 to do the following with their site:

Hire an additional full time team member to build more interactive features for the nonprofit stores to help them engage more with supporters.
Give us more budget to host more contests to attract more artists. Our goal for 2013 is to attract 8000 artists to be on goodjoe.com.
Give us a small marketing budget to reach out to different channel of nonprofits. This is the mos efficient way to achieve the goal of working with 200 nonprofits in 2013.
Increase our purchasing power for shipping and packaging materials to help bring down cost.
And lastly, continue to feed our passion and stomach so that we can strive towards our 2013 goals.

It’s a noble goal, it’s a massive goal, and they’ve given themselves until the last second of the year to reach that goal. It’s a big aim and I really hope they can do it because I like their idea of crowdsourcing charity designs and raising awareness for issues in the process, especially since the resulting tees don’t suffer from the usual problem of charity tees of giving that “look at me, I’m better than you” impression on the wearer. As I say, it’s a Kickstarter-esque crowdfunding project, so there are various levels that you can pledge to, from $1 to $499 with varying levels of reward. Any of you guys going to pitch in a few dollars to get the shirt you can see above?
