OK, here’s another reason why Twitter is cool. Occasionally I’ll scroll through and look at who is following my tweets, and click around to see what people are up to. Today I did this, and came upon the Yellow Bird Project.
You need to check this out. Here’s their mission:
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 artistsâ€™ 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.
I love this shit. It, of course, helps that the designs are so rad.
So makes Twitter worthwhile.
