Shirts that can save

I recently won a giveaway (SEE- people really  DO win them!!) on another blog. The prize was a shirt of my choice from AndyMonsters.com. You can see the one I picked here. I love it, but that's not what this post is about.  While I was looking thru the site to see which shirt I would like, I came across this shirt:

RSCN5698

This shirt isn't like the other 'Monster' shirts. Here's why:
100% of the proceeds will be donated to charity to raise money to perform surgeries for children born with cleft palates.

Regardless of culture or background, we all speak the universal language of smiling.  Some children, however, are born with cleft palates that affect them physically and emotionally.  It only takes a few hundred dollars and less than an hour to change a child's life forever.

Those 20 dollars provide 10% of what it costs to perform the surgery to correct a cleft palate. The money goes to The Smile Train. PLEASE click here to learn more about it.

I also found this shirt:RSCN5695

Super cute right? $22. That's it and it all goes to "The Water Project."  Did you know that 1 out of every 4 deaths under the age of 5 worldwide is due to a water-related disease??
100% of the proceeds will be donated to build wells to provide clean water in foreign countries.

Water is essential to life.  It's easy to take clean water for granted, but in many parts of the world, some have to walk miles just to get a dirty bucket of water.  Only several dollars can change that for one person!

These shirts are cool. I like them because everyone and their dog aren't wearing them. But I LOVE that they help change and save lives. This is NOT a paid post. I contacted Andy of Andy Monsters and asked him if it'd be ok to post about these shirts.  I was not paid to do it. Please check out his site and the charities.  $20 can get you a cool shirt and can change a child's life forever.

Thanks.
