Validus Apparel + Refilwe Project

I’ve featured tees from Validus Apparel on the blog a few times before but this time I’m glad to mention that they have two tees available for purchase and it’s for a great cause. Kristian Hay, co-founder of Validus Apparel is about to embark on a summer trip to South Africa were he will be helping orphaned kids with HIV. A portion of the proceeds earned from the two tees seen here will go directly to the Refilwe Project and will help those who are less fortunate. Both tees are printed on American Apparel blanks and cost $19.99 each. 

Here are a few words from Kristian about the project:

“A group of teachers and students from my school are going to South Africa this summer on a mission to help orphaned kids in the establishment entitled “Refilwe”. We’re trying to help them raise enough money to build a school there as well as establish a soccer camp for the children. The majority of the kids there are not only orphaned but HIV infected and a change is needed. Of course there are a countless number of people that need our help but this is one small step on the road to a better world. With every purchase of these shirts, a portion of the proceeds will go into the trip to Refilwe.” -Kristian Hay of Validus Apparel

TeeFury and Stabb Collaborate for Charity

It’s a great thing whenever people in the tee community help each other out. The people at tee-a-day site TeeFury have teamed up with Stabb Clothing to help raise money for charity. 

In a recent post on the Stabb blog, Stabb founder Ryan Grandmaison, mentioned the recent cancer diagnosis of a good friend and bandmade (Something for Nothing) of his. He has also been posting regular updates about his friend so be sure to check those out on the Stabb blogs.

TeeFury recently reached out to Grandmaison and offered to collaborate with the up-an-coming tee brand to create a tee with the help of the indie tee community. Grandmaison (aka as RustyEight) posted about the collaboration on the Emptees forum:

As most of you know by now, my buddy and guitarist Ben has been fighting Burkitt’s Lymphoma for the past few months and thanks to you guys we’ve raised a bunch of money and some clothes.

Wotto approched me the other day with an idea on how to raise some more, via TeeFury . TeeFury Collab! Alphabet Edition!

What’s the idea? Every designer signs up to design 1 letter (capital). If we have enough people(52) we’ll do both capital and lower case. Keep it at 3 Colors.

The shirt will then go up on TeeFury for sale sometime in in January or February. If you would like to sign up for this huge collab, post the letter you would like. First come first serve. Remember, proceeds will be going to Ben, you will not get paid for it. DEADLINE IS JANUARY 31ST 

If you’re interested, then be sure to check out the forum post. You can sign up for a letter there (there are a couple of letters left as of this posting). Good luck to TeeFury and Stabb with this!

Jimiyo’s Hope Phoenix

If you’re a Jimiyo fan then you might consider picking up his latest design, to be released later today at Tee Fury. As with all Tee Fury tees, you’ll only be able to purchase Hope Phoenix for 24 hours and then it’ll be gone (who knows if Jimiyo will have it reprinted). And, if that’s not enough to get you to pick this tee up then you should not that proceeds will go to charity:

“Proceeds from the sale of this design will go to East Nashville Cooperative Ministry. It is within the community in which I live. Although I find myself to be so calculating that I can rationalize out most charitable donations as being indiscriminate and ineffective, I have actually visited the small building in which ENCM resides and feel that even a small donation would help.

So if you like the design, please consider purchasing the shirt, OR alternatively you can help ENCM by donating to them through their website.” -Jimiyo
