Band Tees

You say your New Year's resolution was to give more to charity? Well here's a great way to do and even get something in return. Head on over to the Yellow Bird Project where you can buy t-shirts designed by your favorite indie-rockers, with 100% of the sales going directly to charity. Right now you can pick up a shirt designed by Rilo Kiley, Devandra Banhart, CYHSY, Wolfmother, Joseph Arthur and more.

Here's some info on the YBP from their website....

Yellow Bird Project is a Montreal-based, non-profit initiative. We collaborate with musicians in designing a T-shirt, we print and sell them on our website, and all of the money we make goes to charity. Which charity? Each of the artists gets to choose their own. We have three fundamental aims:

1) To make money for charities directly through T-shirt sales.

2) To raise awareness for charity organizations through artists’ endorsement.

3) To raise the profile of the artists we like.

We have specifically approached individuals that we think are creative and conscientious enough to make a difference.

It's a great way to give back if you ask me.
