|Name of Merchandise:||T-shirt Charity fundraiser (The Artist Collective)|
|Briefly describe the merchandise:|
There were three t-shirts to choose from, all of which were designed by 3 artists. The T-shirt fundraiser meant all the profit went to a charity chosen by those artists. This was called the artist collective and we had a lot of help along the way from printer companies to local knowledge and suppliers of t-shirts. This got many Christchurch local businesses supporting such a great cause. The pink t-shirt has been attached below next to an email screenshot.
|What makes the merchandise special?|
The item was special because it had significance to Christchurch and the artists who designed the t-shirts. the money was all donated to three charities which also made it special. One charity, in particular, was surfable where the money went to fund those individuals with disabilities to learn how to surf during summer in Sumner beach. It was all special not only to those who bought the t-shirts but also to the charities who received the donation at the end. I have attached a screenshot of a reply from one of the charities shown we have benefited the community.
