Buy A Shirt, Make A Difference

An overwhelming percentage of my wardrobe consists of band t-shirts.  I'm addicted to wearing my favorite group's logo.  It's even better when the design include some sarcastic or witty lyrics.  My most recent haul included a Jessie J shirt.  I don't even own her album.  It's just that her grinning face and Cleopatra hair looks amazing on the front of a shirt.  Anyways, the only thing better than a band shirt is when all of your hard earned money goes to a good cause.  Not only does a shirt for charity help make the world a better place, it also makes you feel good about yourself.

fun. recently unveiled a new shirt in their merch store.  Their LGBTQ design features the bold line, "It’s all fun. and gay ’til someone loses their rights.".  All, not just thirty or fifty percent, but all proceeds made from purchases of this shirt are donated to Revel And Riot.  Revel And Riot is an organization that works towards LGBTQ equality.  So you get to help a cause and you get an awesome band tee from fun..  Just in time for the holidays.  So don we now our gay apparel, stocking stuffers for everyone!

You can grab one for yourself over at fun.'s online store for $15.00.  While you're there, you may want to add "We Are Young", the band's new single, to your cart.  It features Janelle Monáe and just might get stuck in your head all day.

For some more musical t-shirts that benefit a variety of charity organizations, including the Little Boots pattern pictured above, head over to the Yellow Bird Project.  They have shirts from Beach House, Metric, and tons more.  Each artist chooses their favorite charity and all profits go straight to the group. They have a shirt for just about anyone, and plenty of the styles will fit right in with your hipster ensemble.

If you know of any cool band tees that you think the world should see, let me know!  The comment section is your friend.  What's your favorite musical merchandise that goes towards the bigger picture?
