About three months ago I told you about the guys over at Fifty Thousand Shirts attempting to raise money to help out the victims of the earthquake that devastated China earlier this year. Their idea was to sell t-shirts (50,000 of them) and hand over all the profits (about $1,000,000) to a relevant charity. It took a while to get the shirts out as there were a few hiccups along the way but they are finally on sale. So if you are feeling charitable please head over there and grab yourself a shirt or two.
Obviously I don’t have my t-shirts yet but they look pretty nice and they are for a good cause. Recently though I have been thinking about this charity and it is a nice thing to do and one million dollars seems like a lot of money and should help a lot of people. Then I think about the $58 billion that I heard were spent on the Olympics in China and I think again. Reduce that figure to $57 billion and you could have helped a thousand time more people that this charity will. Something to think about.
