As if that gesture in itself wasn't wonderful enough, the t-shirt designs that they have come up with are awesome!
The t-shirts are being sold for $15 each, and shipping is $5. ALL of the proceeds are going to "Spot a Cure" and I believe it's going to be about $10 a shirt - awesomeness!
Now I can see where if you're not a spotty-dog-fanatic, maybe the design isn't exactly up your alley, BUT I'm sure Lisa would be thrilled to accept any donations to help the cause. OR, I'd be happy to take the spotty shirt off your hands! :)
I know times are tough and there are always organizations in need, but what impresses me so much is when ordinary, everyday people take it upon themselves to help MAKE A DIFFERENCE. (And Lisa, you are far from ordinary, but hopefully you know what I mean.)
Inspired. That's what I am - I ordered my shirt, but I want to do more. And because I've been playing a contest on Facebook to hopefully win some agility DVDs, I thought it would be fun to have a little contest of my own. But in my contest, everybody wins. :)
So, what I would like to offer is for every person who becomes a "fan" of Simply Spotted Photography on Facebook in September, I will donate $1 (up to $100) to Spot a Cure. I currently have 94 fans so let's try for 194! Yes, it is a little self-serving (hey, I like fans!) but I'm hoping that this will be another way to help spread the word. And I promise not to clutter up your FB pages - actually, I'm not the best FB updater anyway. :)
Thank you to all who donate! And thank you to Lisa for being so darn inspiring! I understand that they've gotten a great response to the t-shirts so far and one of the designs is already sold out, but have no fear - more are on the way!
