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.
It’s been really depressing watching and reading the news this past week, especially with all of the Haiti coverage. Seeing all those people lose everything that they had and have known is truly heartbreaking. And that’s why I’ll continue to blog about these Haiti relief Â T-Shirts that continue to be released and whose profits go to help those suffering in Haiti.
The latest Haiti relief shirt comes to use from Yellow Black & White. The shirt is called “Tout Bagay Deja Byen.” I had no idea what that meant, until I took a peak at the product description. After learning its meaning, I thought that it was the perfect phrase for such a sad time. The tee is available in black and red colorways and is on presale for $25 with 100% of the proceeds going to Haitian. The printing for this project was donated by Print My Goods.
“We have been able to visit Haiti a couple times in the past. This past summer I actually spent a week and a half there, about 100 miles outside of Port-Au-Prince. While we were there we saw a sign with these words on it â€œTout Bagay Deja Byen.â€ In english this phrase would be translated as â€œAll things are already goodâ€ or â€œEverything is already OK.â€ It was explained that this was a statement that Haitians use as a means of spreading hope. To us this statement best represents what we have experienced for ourselves and we have learned about the Haitian people in the last few days. They are incredibly strong and hopeful.”
