shirts that donate

As a part of our philosophy of giving back, we donate shirts that don’t pass our tough quality control standards. We regularly link select designs to nonprofits that support global education initiatives. You can be confident that our contributions reach the cause without getting lost in bureaucracy: the charities and nonprofits we work with have a proven track record of transparency and effectiveness in reaching their goals. Recently, we are partnered with Stand for Education, a foundation supporting education in South Sudan, where thanks to decades of war and unrest, the illiteracy rate stands at a staggering 80% for men, and 90% for women. Stand for Education is unique in the extreme care they take in ensuring that whatever assistance they introduce to the local economy is sustainable. Learn more about their fantastic work at www.stand4education.org.
