It’s exciting news to say that after a lot of saving up money, designing, and signing contracts the Sparrow Project is proud to announce that this Spring 2010 we will be launching a line of benefit shirts, that are sweatshop-free, printed with love in Long Island with soy & water based inks & color discharge elements. They are full-bleed, seam-to-seam, art prints that benefit the projects we love most. The Spring 2010 line will benefit Farm Sanctuary, Hope International for Tikar People, The Uganda Skateboard Union, Clean Ocean Action, The Icarus Project, & the Sparrow Media Project.
Each design is a partnership between Sparrow & an artist or activist who works with one of the organizations that will be benefiting from the sales. We are calling the project 50%50 because even though we offer art direction we want to empower the people involved in the causes to have their struggle reflected in the art. This is just a sneak peak at what will be coming. Tee’s will be available online soon for $25. They look good & feel good.
Many thanks to Brooke, Alex, Beck & Jason at MerchDirect for bringing this all together.
