T-shirts for a Cause
Fashionable and philanthropic
-Julie Ryan Evans
Have you ever spent $200 on a pair of jeans, and thought, “wow, I could have bought a cheaper pair and donated that money to charity?” While it has crossed my mind a time or two, I can’t say it’s sent me back to the Gap.
Well, here’s a way to marry your love for Citizens for Humanity with actually being a good citizen of humanity-Luella Bartley has created a limited edition line of t-shirts for TONIC to benefit several great causes around the world.
From shoes for children in Haiti to soccer balls for children in Kenya, 30 percent of each t-shirt’s price ($45) will be donated to one of four non-profits around the globe. And the shirts are quite cute too-white, flattering v-necks for women and black crewnecks for men, all made out of a cotton, bamboo blend. And what a conversation starter! They feature a robin, pagan sun, stag or Scary Douglas tree-depending on which charity you choose to support…or which you like best.
