Upperatus Charity T-Shirts – T-shirt designs often accompany fund raising and charity work, & Upperatus has built their site around this concept. Every month they feature one design that directly benefits a charity, and they team up with a celebrity to promote it.
I really hope this works out for them, as doing things idealistically and the “right” way is often more expensive and feels like swimming upstream. (For inspiration look at companies like Newman’s Own that have had a successful business and donated over 330 million to charity)
Here’s an idea of how we can all support their idea. Go buy one of their high quality American made t-shirts (with water-based inks) this month, and then contact me with your order confirmation. (subject: Upperatus) If you do, I’ll mention you at the bottom of this post with a link to your website.
So, for about $30 you get a great shirt, an $11 donation to Heal the Bay, and some potential traffic to your site. Not a bad investment. Go check them out at upperatus.com
