Charity


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.

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.

One of the interesting things about Sevenly supporting a different charity each week is that it means we get to find out about causes that may have otherwise passed us by. This week they are raising money for the Sweet Nectar Society, a new organization that has brought together talented photographers in California to take photographs of children that are undergoing treatment for serious illnesses and injuries so provide their family with beautifully shot long lasting memories of their child. It’s not the kind of thing that you immediately think of when you think of charity, there’s no one in a lab trying to cure cancer, but it’s a service that would be really invaluable to those that receive it.

Sevenly support TAPS this week

by Andy on May 21, 2013





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.

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.

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.

Post image for Coffee & Cigarettes release a hoodie & crew neck, and do some charity work






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.
