Fifty Thousand Shirts

Fifty Thousand Shirts

We came across a fantastic project recently called ‘Fifty Thousand Shirts‘.

On Monday, May 19, one week after the quake, reports surfaced estimating that 50,000 lives would be lost in this tragedy—our vision is hope. One by one, fifty thousand hand drawn tally marks create the “x” on your shirt, each one representing a life that has passed, and connecting it with a life that has committed to help rebuild. Your shirt is a symbol how one person, multiplied 50,000 times, can do something amazing.

Each shirt will be individually numbered and all involved will have their names recorded on the Wall. You can be a part of something important. You can be hope.

The project is a great idea and for such a great cause! The site is really simply designed, something we really love here at The Big Word Project. We snapped up some shirts straight away, check it out below. We would encourage everyone to check out the site and sign up to this great cause!
