I am a lover of good music, good art and good t-shirts. I also am a fan of good people doing good things to help or assist others.
With that being said, I came across an organization that blends all of those things together. It is called the Yellow Bird Project — cool name, even cooler group of artists and philanthropists.
They describe themselves as:
“… a tree of creativity, with branches joining together indie musicians, charitable organizations, and t-shirts with a fashionable punch. We’re a non-profit Montreal based organization dedicated to bringing our customers the finest of quality, originality, and philanthropy. We seek out only the coolest of cool artists, collaborate with them to design awesomely awesome tee-shirts, and give all the prettiest of pretty profits to charities of the artists’ choice.”
I think by their own description you can tell that they are pretty cool organization. Check them out — my Devendra Banhart shirt (which will help fund the Teenage Cancer Trust) is on its way right now.
I have also added their banner to my blog (on the right sidebar) for quick and easy linkage.
