T-shirt charity drives make inexpensive and effective fundraising strategies. Many charitable organizations sell custom t-shirts cheap to raise money and awareness for their cause. Using custom tees to raise money for charity is a fundraising strategy employed by many Rush Order Tees custom t-shirts customers. Screen printed shirts and logo t-shirts sales not only contribute to raising much needed funds but also raise the overall awareness of a group, organization or cause.

Even government agencies use personalized t-shirts for this purpose. Just last month, the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute wore customized t shirts in a flash mob dance on National Wear Red Day not to raise funds (though donations to the cause and volunteerism are always encouraged) but to raise awareness of heart, lung and blood disease.

Custom t-shirts are inexpensive, durable, fashionable, and provide people with the element of casual comfort they need when they are with friends and family, relaxing around the house, at the gym, or out to a movie, causal event such, sporting event or just shopping.

Matthew Price, Operations Manager for Rush Order Tees has observed that “People are also very likely to buy custom logo shirts as souvenirs. If a client is having a fundraiser at an event with a large turnout, people will flock to the t-shirts as something that is almost a necessary or ‘must have’ souvenir of the event. They serve as reminders of the day, particularly if the event is a fun event such as an annual carnival or festival.

“T-shirt charities are also particularly lucrative for school groups and sports teams.” Continued Price. “Custom t-shirts are a great way for people to show solidarity and pride for a school or a team.”

Ron Reed, Vice President of Marketing and eCommerce for Printfly Inc. and the Rush Order Tees brand noted “Consumers enjoy wearing shirts to their children’s school or sporting events, or simply to show pride in their town or group. Academic staff enjoy showing pride in their school and of course any members of private groups take pride in their association, professional network, band or interests like a local book club.”

“The benefits of selling custom printed tees for fundraising events are certainly far-reaching and long lasting.”
