I made a tshirt. And I want you to pay money for it. So I can give that money to the MBMBaM Angels, who in turn will give it to the Mountain State Centers for Independent Living.

It's a pretty shirt. I mean...come on. Let's COLLABORATE on this one, you guys and gals, and unspecified and very specified but not listed people. Even the dogs with credit cards out there. 

The Mountain State Centers for Independent Living had their funding cut by $100,000 this year. They're a great organization devoted to community-based organization providing advocacy, networking, and resources to people with disabilities and their families. The centers are a place where people with disabilities are free to meet, share, learn and plan lives of greater independence and self reliance. And that's copy/pasted from their website, so you know they mean business.

I've been making shirts for the past couple of years, but this year, I wanted to help out others because apparently there's bad things going on the world and I want to counteract them. And so, the idea of making these shirts and giving the profits to the MBMBaM Angels was born. 

I design shirts and my dad owns a screen printing shop. The plan is to take the money, subtract the cost of production and give that remaining money to the MBMBaM Angels. I will not be taking any of the proceeds.

If this project gets funded, I plan on sending each of the brothers their own shirt and a list with all the contributors names. Maybe I'll splurge and laminate the lists.

Please help the Angels spread the word and raise some money for a good, good cause. Thanks!

Risks and challenges

My family and I run a screen printing shop where we do custom apparel and merch for local businesses and personal ventures. We have the capacity to get the materials easily and the experience to make sure it's done right.

The more shirts we sell, the larger amount we can donate to the MBMBaM Angels. Smaller shirt orders do not leave much room for profit and so we're hoping to overcome that by increasing the amount of tshirts (and other apparel) sold!
