Buy a T-Shirt and Provide Haiti Assistance!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Austin Texas Homes, LLC 453249

One of my good friends, Gilbert Sauceda, runs a local company called the Color Factory.  They specialize in logo design and t-shirt printing, along with signage and branding. 

Gilbert's company is working in conjunction with HELP (Help End Local Poverty) to provide t-shirts at their material cost (i.e. no profit) to benefit Haiti in the wake of the recent earthquake.  All proceeds will be going to help. 

I've been looking for ways to help ever since this tragedy occurred last week.  I'm hoping to leverage my following to get exposure for this project.  They are offering 1,000 shirts for sale as part of this initiative. 

I was impressed that they are doing something tangible to help.  The shirts appear to be very nice, and you can see them here:

At a cost of $25, please consider purchasing a shirt so that additional funds can be directed to Haiti.  HELP is a solid, legitimate organization.  Please help spread the word!

I really like the gray one!!  It is an awesome thing for them to do.  I don't understand though, are they providing them shirts or are they going to give money?  If money what portion is going to Haiti of the $25.  Just curious-we are giving through our church but I think I would like one of the shirts and would love to pass this on to other people but would like more details because others always want more details.

Tami - They are sending all profit to Haiti after the cost of materials.  My friend is basically donating his time.  I don't know what his costs are exactly, but a significant portion of the $25/shirt will be sent.

Jason, That's a wonderful idea he had to help raise money.  Most of us have donated but they are going to need help for a very, very long time!

Great info Jason.  I re-blogged it to my own site to increase the number of people who might see it.  I can't wait to get my own t-shirt!  I really like the Hope for Haiti t-shirts.

Even though I already sent lots of monetary donations to the various agencies, if I didn't already have over 500 T-shirts, I would buy one.
