A little over a week ago, I started a Teespring campaign.
What is Teespring
Teespring lets you “create & sell custom apparel” (more info).
You upload your design, set a goal for the campaign and once that goal is reached the T-Shirts will be printed and shipped. If you sell enough shirts, you can gather a little profit with it.
Because I’m interested only in the shirts, not the profit the campaign makes, I thought I’d do something useful with the money and decided to donate it directly to charity:water.
What is charity:water
charity:water makes it their “mission to bring clean and safe drinking water to every person in the world.”
I first heard about that charity from Steve Scott (@macdevnet on twitter). He launched the “Developers against Poverty” campaign in 2011 on charity:water and raised over $60,000 with it, bringing clean water to a community in Ethiopia and 12 others.
I thought that was a very nice thing, so that’s why I decided to donate the resulting money from the teespring campaign to that charity.
There are four kinds of items you can purchase:
Unisex Shirt; back has small cloud logo with text http://www.eternalstorms.at ($16.99)
Female Shirt; back has small cloud logo with text http://www.eternalstorms.at ($16.99)
Long Sleeve Shirt; back has small cloud logo with text http://www.eternalstorms.at ($17.99)
Hoodie; back has small cloud logo with text http://www.eternalstorms.at ($25.99)
If the shirts don’t tickle your fancy, perhaps you’d like to donate directly to charity:water – here’s a link to their donate page ;)
Thank you for your time – I hope you enjoy the shirts. They should start shipping early to mid April 2015, depending on where you live!
