Fifty Thousand Shirts

“My name is Steve. On Monday, May 19, 2008, I set a goal to sell 50,000 shirts and raise $1,000,000 to help in the aftermath of China’s 7.9 earthquake.”

In the aftermath of any crisis, there are always people who stand up and try to help. When the crisis is half a world a way, it’s always a little bit harder to make any kind of direct impact.

Fortunately, what’s a few thousand miles when matched against the internet and a little imagination?

50 Thousand

About the Design: “One by one, fifty thousand hand drawn tally marks create the “x” on your shirt, each one representing a life that has passed, and connecting it with a life that has committed to help rebuild. Your shirt is a symbol how one person, multiplied 50,000 times, can do something amazing.”

Steve is hoping that $20 of each shirt sold will go to the cause. You can help by buying a shirt, linking to the facebook page, or digging the story.
