Yes, I have been posting a lot of charity T-Shirts the last couple of days, but hey, it really is the least that I can do. Here we have two more from Threadless, each of which is part of their Threadless Causes campaign. Every time there’s a natural disaster, Threadless has been very quick to respond by releasing a charity T-Shirt. And with the earthquakes in Japan and New Zealand they were as quick as usual. Both of the T-Shirts are priced at $20 with 100% of net proceeds from the sale of Rebuild Japan by Jason Yang will go to the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami fund. Likewise, 25% from the sale of Many Hands by David Creighton-Pester will go to Architecture for Humanity’s efforts to rebuild the city of Christchurch, New Zealand.
FITTED is a very popular streetwear type brand that is based in Hawaii. They recently released a Japan benefit tee, Aloha For Japan, and it has been selling like crazy here in Hawaii. A friend of mine, last week, stopped by a local shop that sells FITTED gear, and he mentioned to me that people were putting their names down just so they could get their hands on this particular shirt. Clearly, a lot of people from Hawaii have ties to Japan, and so it’s no surprise that this shirt is a big hit here.
Aloha in the Hawaiian language means affection, love, peace, compassion and mercy.
Fortunately, if you live away from the islands, you can still pick up Aloha For Japan. The T-Shirt is available now on the FITTED online shop for $20. All profits from each T-Shirt sold will go directly to Japan relief efforts.
Note: Due to extremely high demand for these tees, orders will be shipped in order of invoice as the tees are printed. Please allow 2 – 4 weeks for expected delivery of the tees. They are also have these available in stores, however, due to the same reasons, there is now a waiting list.
It only makes sense that the good people (or person… David) would pitch in to help out with tsunami relief efforts in Japan. Not only does his brand have close ties to Japanese pop culture, but he also majored in Japanese literature. So it is no surprise that he is being VERY generous with his limited edition Seibei Japan benefit T-Shirt.
The tee is priced at $18, with all the profits going to Japan disaster relief. So, if you buy a Seibei relief tee, more than $10 of each T-Shirt sale will go directly to helping out the people of Japan. That’s pretty damn rad. Seibei will be taking orders up until March 25, so if you want one, now is the time to grab one. Do it.
NOTE: The tees will be shipped the week following March 25 and will never be available in this colorway again.
Our friends over at Design By Humans have pitched in to help with Japan relief efforts with the release of their latest tee, Help Japan. Johnson Flores, a Philippines native and Design By Humans member, came up with the aqua blue, white, and red design. For every shirt that is sold (up until today), DBH will donate $3 to the American Red Cross. Hopefully, they decide to extend this donation offer.
Threadless once again is doing their part to help with disaster relief. It seems as if these disasters are occurring way to often for comfort. Still, it’s great to see a company like Threadless pitch in and lend a helping hand. The chosen design will help Japan rise from the rubble and provide aid to those people who need it most. Winners will receive $500 cash and $500 Threadless gift certificate. And of course, all proceeds from the printed T-Shirt will go to Japan relief efforts. Check out the challenge page here.
On March 11th, a magnitude 8.9 earthquake devastated Japan. The quake, officially the strongest in the country’s history, was followed by a massive Tsunami that swept away more than six miles of coastline. The disaster left hundreds dead and hundreds more still missing. With your help, tens of thousands of displaced Japanese citizens will rise from the rubble and begin the recovery process. Threadless will donate 25% from the sale of each tee to The American Red Cross’s Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami fund. The chosen design will be available for purchase at Threadless.
Our friends over at Goodie Two Sleeves is doing their part to help with earthquake relief efforts in Japan. For the entire month of March, 100% of proceeds from merchandise will go directly to the victims of the Japan earthquake. They have not yet selected a donation recipient (though they mention that it may likely be the Red Cross), but they assure that they will post when they a have chosen a responsible party to receive the money.
They’ve got tons of great stuff over at Goodie Two Sleeves, I’ve included some of their recent tees below, but if you don’t see something you like then be sure to stop their online shop because they have a large inventory and variety of T-Shirts designs and styles. Now go and pick up and awesome shirt and help a human smile again.

The Haiti Relief tees continue to roll in, the newest coming from possibly the most dominate T-Shirt brand on the Internet – Threadless. Many Hands Make The Load Lighter is a shirt that was designed by the duo Thomas De Santis and Ivan Tarrazo Sanchez. The inspiration for the shirt De Santis says was”â€œAmazing Haitian street art. It provides a true sense of daily life and community through the use of gorgeous colors.â€
“We reached out to Haiti’s neighbors and asked two of our designers from the Dominican Republic to design this tee, Thomas De Santis and Ivan Tarrazo Sanchez. Theyâ€™ve declined their printing award and are instead giving it to the Red Cross. Shirts Our Business, one of our printers, has donated their printing time and ink. And everyone here has been rallying to get this tee out to retain focus on the relief effort. We hope you too, will send this along to your friends and fams to show your support!”
For only $10 you can pick up Many Hands Make The Load Lighter with 100% of the proceeds (up to $100,000) will be donated to the Red Cross to aid relief efforts inHaiti.

I admit that 1. I am not a big Domino’s fan and 2. I never play Avoid The Droid. And now that those two disclaimers are out of the way, I present to you the Aovid The Noid T-Shirts from Domino’s Pizza. For those of you not familiar with Avoid The Noid, it was a platform computer game for the Commodore 64 and DOS, written in 1989 to promote Domino’s Pizza. It was modeled after the company’s ad campaign during the late 1980s. The ads featured a “noid” that destroyed pizzas and must be avoided.
“Cyber Monday is one of the busiest days of the year for online retailers, and Domino’s Pizza is now getting a slice of the action! For a limited time only, Domino’s is bringing back the Noid, their famous 1980′s advertising character, to help raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during its sixth annual Thanks and Giving campaign.”
These vintage-styled Noid shirts are currently available for sale at $19.99 a piece and is limited to 1 shirt per customer. $14 from the sale of each shirt will be donated to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The shirts have a limited print run of 1,000. It’s for a good cause so if you were a fan of the Noid, don’t avoid it, just pick one up!
Thanks to Travis from Found Item Clothing for the tip.
