About this project

From the little-known pangolin to the iconic African elephant, over 16,000 animal species are endangered! We want to help by raising awareness with t-shirts that shine a spotlight on species in peril and by donating a portion of our profits* to wildlife conservation groups. 

Each month we will mail out an original, hand-printed t-shirt, featuring one of these unique creatures. When you wear the shirts, you'll be spreading a conservation message, giving a voice to wildlife here and abroad. Best of all, for every shirt we sell, we'll donate $1* to one of our carefully chosen conservation partners. We will also be offering our design files for free to conservation groups to use for their fundraising efforts.

*In keeping with Kickstarter policy, please note that donations will be made from proceeds garnered from sales after the Kickstarter project has ended and fulfilled.

SUBSCRIPTION OPTIONS

We're offering 1, 3, 5 or 10 month subscription options starting at just $30. 

THE DESIGNS

Expect unique designs every month. The illustration style and shirt color will vary from month to month to ensure variety. We love to make people laugh, so some shirts may be funny, but we promise to keep all humor family-friendly and upbeat.

Here are some of our sample concept designs:

You can see the red wolf design being printed in the project video.

THE SHIRTS

We've searched high and low for a comfortable, classic t-shirt. Don't worry, while they are durable and high-quality, these shirts are lightweight enough for a even a Texas summer. We're offering three styles; youth, ladies and adult unisex. 

  • 4.5 oz. 100% combed ringspun cotton (Heather is 93/7) jersey. 
  • Taped shoulder-to-shoulder with tear-away label. 
  • Double-needle hem sleeves and bottom.
  • We'll offer a "gender neutral" shirt color option because we realize that not everyone feels comfortable in every color. 
  • Youth Sizes: extra small, small, medium, large, extra large
  • Ladies' Sizes: small, medium, large, extra large, 2XL, 3XL
  • Adult Unisex: small, medium, large, extra large, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL
  • Shirts will come with an info tag that tells a little about the animal and why it is endangered to help you continue the conversation when people ask about your shirt.

Shirts are cotton and do shrink, so you may want to order one size larger than usual. If your shirt doesn't fit like you'd hoped, just let us know asap and we'll change your shirt order on future shirts.

 

 

A GREAT GIFT!

The holidays are just around the corner and we'll make it as easy as possible to surprise your friends and family. Order a multi-month subscription and you can take care of birthdays and other gift occasions too! If you are giving a tee subscription as a gift, you'll simply provide the recipient details and we'll do the rest. Gifted shirts will even arrive with a note that you can personalize. Don't worry, about sizing issues, if the receiver doesn't like the fit of their first shirt, they can just let us know asap and we'll change the size of future shirts.

NO "PINK TAX!"  

Many retailers charge more for merchandise geared toward women. (Just take a stroll down the shaving aisle and you'll see what we mean!) We've chosen to offer the same great price whether you order ladies style or unisex.

CONSERVATION PARTNERS

We're donating $1* for every shirt sold to carefully chosen conservation groups. These groups are selected because they have a good record of making a difference and sending funds straight into conservation efforts. We'll give updates here as we donate, to let you know how the money is being spent. 

We will also be offering our design files for free to conservation groups to use for their fundraising efforts.

*In keeping with Kickstarter policy, please note that donations will be made from proceeds garnered from sales after the Kickstarter project has ended and fulfilled.

Risks and challenges

One of the bigger risks of this challenge is that we might not have enough takers at the 10 month subscription level. Because of the time involved in designing and burning a printing screen, small print runs are not cost effective. Never the less, if this happens we will find a creative solution.

Production speed may be a challenge if we have more backers than we expect. But this is a challenge we welcome and we know exactly how to handle it: by purchasing a conveyor dryer to speed up production! This is something we've been wanting to do anyway.

Postal rate hikes are another risk, but we've planned for that and it shouldn't be an issue if it does happen.

No matter the challenge, we will deliver!
