Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
Fantag Tees, maker of unique NFL player apparel, is offering a select line of products to raise money and awareness for the favorite charitable causes of numerous NFL players including Brandon Marshall (Chicago Bears), Justin Tuck (New York Giants), Randall Cobb (Green Bay Packers), Sean Weatherspoon (Atlanta Falcons), Charles ‘Peanut’ Tillman (Chicago Bears), and Vernon Davis (San Francisco 49ers). Through December 31st, Fantag will donate $5 from the purchase of each player’s charity t-shirt / hoodie to his respective foundation or sponsored cause. The NFL player t-shirts are available online at http://www.fantagtees.com.
“We’re thrilled to collaborate with such an accomplished group players, each of whom is committed to supporting his respective community in meaningful ways,” said Matthew Lee Rosen from Fantag Tees. “This is Fantag’s first year of operation, so the players’ responses to our apparel and giveback concept has been gratifying to say the least. We look forward to expanding the program in the coming months.”
Fantag’s art-driven apparel features unique graphic designs that celebrate each player and charity.
Justin Tuck, and wife Lauran, founded R.U.S.H. for Literacy (Read, Understand, Succeed, and Hope), an organization that provides books and positive reinforcement for young readers in New York City, central Alabama and New Jersey. Fantag’s R.U.S.H. design features word game tiles that spell out “Tuck” and the foundation’s name.
For the Vernon Davis Foundation for the Arts, an organization that promotes art education for disadvantaged kids, Fantag created a painter’s canvas set outdoors with a view of the San Francisco skyline. The painting on the easel recalls Davis’ #85 football jersey.
Randall Cobb sponsors the Blessings in a Backpack program at his hometown elementary school in Alcoa, Tennessee. ‘Blessings’ feeds impoverished children on weekends throughout the school year. The shirt’s front features an ACME Packing crate filled with cheese and corn. The shirt’s back artwork shows a child wearing a Cobb #18 backpack.
Sean Weatherspoon’s SPOONful of Hope, a program that focuses on teaching life-skills to children, will receive donations through a “Spooooon!” shirt design. This original product invokes Atlanta fans’ nickname for Sean, his jersey number, and a giant spoon holding a football.
Charles ‘Peanut’ Tillman’s Cornerstone Foundation has provided opportunities and resources to over one million needy children and their families in the Chicagoland area since 2005. Fantag’s design plays off of Tillman’s nickname and his standout 2012 season. The copy “MVPeanut” anchors the shirt along with a #33 peanut situated in front of Chicago’s skyline.
Brandon Marshall’s Project Borderline, an organization that raises awareness of borderline personality disorder (BPD), will generate funds from Fantag’s “There’s a New Marshall in Town” design that includes Chicago’s famous cityscape and the copy “Skyline for Borderline.”
All shirts can be purchased directly in Fantag’s special “Give” e-commerce shop (http://give.spreadshirt.com). Orders are printed on-demand and fulfilled by Spreadshirt, the worldwide creative platform for custom t-shirts, hoodies and other personalized apparel. Charity shirt designs are available in multiple styles and colors for men, women and children.
