Desired Hearts

Desired Hearts, a t-shirt contest site built around the idea of contributing to charity, has just launched with some great designs available for sale and to vote on.

Says the co-founder and creative director: “We’ve thought a lot about the industry and the other sites that are doing this (Threadless and Design By Humans). We never want or plan to become those sites although the general idea is very similar. However, the core idea behind Desired Hearts is the contribution to charities while building an upscale, trusted brand.”

“So instead of battling Threadless and Design By Humans on how much we can pay the winners, we’ve gone a different direction. From now on, we’re going to give $5 to charity for every shirt purchased. That’s 20% of all proceeds going to the charity of your choosing. We want to do this because it’s what the site and the brand is all about: showing the love.”

  1. I would love to see Desired Hearts explode. I love what they’re doing with charities. The submitted designs so far are looking pretty hot too.

  3. Likewise Jeff, I was actually really surprised at the quality of the designs on the site. Not because I thought they wouldn’t be good, but because I think somewhere on a forum I read that they were worried about competing with the “big boys” in the contest world.

    Don’t think they have anything to worry about.

  5. @Roby: BTW, love your site.

    I came across it a few weeks ago from an entirely unconnected source. Was surprised to click through it here.

    The interwebs are indeed a small world.
