Founded in 2007, Try Change's goal is to inspire others to make positive changes that benefit not only themselves but society as a whole. They have inspirational t-shirts of which a percentage of all proceeds go to Volunteers of America Chesapeake. Founded in 1896, VOA Chesapeake operates over 23 programs that serve the homeless, mentally ill, developmentally disabled, ex-offenders, substance abusers, the elderly and children.
"We at Try Change feel an obligation to spread hope, faith, peace, diversity, and positive change to as many people as possible through the sale of our shirts and the stories and charitable organizations we share on our Website and blog," said Vincent Stubbs, company founder.
