I came across FiftyThousandShirts.com on the Tcritic and I think it is a noble cause. The plan is to sell 50,000 t-shirts to raise $1,000,000 for the people affected by the earthquake in China. The number of people who died has already surpassed 50,000 and the number of people made homeless by the quake is estimated at 5 million. By buying one of these shirts you not only get to help some people you also get a pretty cool shirt. And if that wasn’t enough, you also get your name on the Wall (a list of purchasers). The shirts are individually numbered and cost just $25 plus shipping and handling. They hope to send $20 from each sale to China.
If you have a blog I urge you to post about this. It doesn’t need to be a t-shirt blog just spread the word. You can also email your friends and family. The store is not open yet but you can pre-order your t-shirts now and you will be contacted when the store opens. Your name will be put on the board too.
