Hello there, it’s me! Steffi!
If you have no clue who I am, that’s perfectly fine. Just keep on reading anyway, please. 😀
As some of you might know, I like movies, TV series, videogames and t-shirts with cool designs. And I really love it, when those things come together! As there is a shortage of cool t-shirts, when it comes to finding them in stores in my town, I turned to the trusty internet to find me a source and sources I found! 😘
Another thing I really like is supporting good great noble causes.
I bet all of you have seen the SCN fundraiser that’s getting people to open their wallets (more information about it in the blog “I Care, I Gave, I Inspired“) and have at least thought about possible missions you can set for yourself, so you can carve your name onto Sue’s list of awesome people to motivate other people to donate.
And who hasn’t noticed the Epic Birthday Bash, that is going down between Susan Keohan and Greg Myers, that big fundracing (not a typo) with some nice smack talking on the side, which will only have one winner in the end and we all know who that will be, don’t we? ^^ The “Doctors without borders” of course!
If you like animals, then you might have seen Ingo’s Help me Save a Bear today-plea, that got a little more desperate lately (his words, not mine ^^). If you want to see him run around dressed up as a racoon, you should definitly check out his blog to help feed some cuuute bear cubs.
So, now you’re probably wondering, why I need to write a blog to tell you things you already know. Well, those information were just the background.
As I said, I like t-shirts with cool designs. One of the online-shops I use to get my awesome shirts is called TeeFury. Independent artists can send in their design and when it’s choosen, TeeFury will print them onto quality t-shirts, handles the whole sale-thing and the artist gets paid a certain amount for each sold t-shirt. The artists keep the rights for their design and they can keep creating awesome art, that I can fall in love with and wear. It’s a win-win for everyone.
Yesterday I got an email from TeeFury, that they have a sale of a freshly created t-shirt and 1$ of each t-shirt sold is going directly to the “Doctors without borders”! So I had to share this with you, since it kind of clicked with the whole community fundraising.
It’s a Doctor Who-design, maybe you have heard of him. *g* And I think it’s the perfect choice, because he’s a Doctor who knows no borders (neither time nor space) and so are they!
So if you love
- Doctor Who (or know someone who does),
- t-shirts (see comment before),
- donating to organisations like MSF and
- supporting independent artists,
then this is the thing for you! I’m getting excited just by writing about it!
The sale is going on until August, the 25th.
HEADS UP: The page seems to have some trouble with the display in Internet Explorer, so if you don’t see a navy shirt, but a white one and the parts of the site overlay wildly, then you should switch to another browser for this.
Now you have another option to donate to a great cause (and get a great looking t-shirt on top of it) and that’s pretty much what I wanted to give you with this blog. Thank you for reading, now it’s your decision. 🙂
UPDATE from October, 7th
As already mentioned in the last comments, I’d love to see some pictures of you guys with your “Doctor without Borders”-shirts. I got mine some time ago, but it took till today to get a camera, the shirt, myself and a friendly helper in the same spot at the same time to shoot a pic to share with you. So here you go:
It looks like the flash lit it up, but there was no flash whatsoever. This gleaming is all the great print! 😘
So what about you, fellow community members? Who got him- or herself (or loved ones) a t-shirt from this sale and wants to share some pictures with you wearing it? I’ll edit the blog post and add them and maybe we get a nice, hearty gallery going here. ^^
