T-Shirt Artist raises over $300.000 for charity

Good Shirts help people. If you get one you could help purchase insecticide treated mosquito nets, vaccines for measles, theraputic milk, and even a cargo flight. The concept behind Good Shirts was created by Justine and Christine Gignac of Wants for Sale

The idea stemmed from their original concept of making art of the things they wanted and selling the art for the cost of the piece. They took that concept and partnered with Threadless and UNICEF to provide support and relief to the families of the Africa Horn. So far they have earned over $300.000 and they even sold the cargo flight (by an anonymous donor) for $300.000! The simple graphic style of the designs are minimal yet sweet, and it's not really about the art, it's about the cause. Check it out.




With Good Shirts, you will help UNICEF deliver life-saving assistance to children and their families affected by drought and famine in the Horn of Africa. Donations support therapeutic treatment for severe malnutrition, access to clean drinking water and better sanitation, vaccinations against measles and other deadly diseases that prey on the malnourished, and much more. 

A little more about Wants For Sale- 
All of the paintings on Wants For Sale are the price of the actual item shown in the painting, whether that’s “A Slice of Pepperoni Pizza” for $3.00 or “A Gold Watch” for $287.19. After each painting is sold, the original wanted item is purchased and photographed.
Prices of paintings can range anywhere from $0 to $1,000,000 and may be of general wants or part of a series like “A Vegas Vacation” or “As Seen On TV.”
