A small group of professionals from Colorado had their hearts broken as they watched wildfires ravage their state this summer. Instead of writing a check, they decided to use their talents to raise money for the wildfire victims.
Austin Buck organized a group of designers and printers to make up some t-shirts, which they’re selling for $20/each. Their goal was to raise $1,500. So far, they’ve raised more than $500,000 for the victims!
This part is really cool, too: A firefighter came to them wanting to purchase shirts for himself and his entire crew. But the designs decided they weren’t going to let the firefighters put out their own cash. So they made an option for people to buy one for themselves and also for a firefighter. So far they’ve donated close to 1,500 shirts.
