Fundraising through Custom T-shirts

Charities and volunteering works like hoodies donations are some of the best activities people can do to help one another. Depending on the cause, volunteers can raise funds through fun runs, band concerts, small parties, and raffle draws.

Hosting these may cost hefty amounts of capital. In order to avoid such and raise more of the funds instead, souvenirs and merchandise-selling are now also being used to raise funds.

Social media and online selling are really helpful ways of spreading awareness about one’s cause and encouraging donations. Selling stuff through social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram is easier than physically selling and it also connects you to a wider range of people.

For creating Custom T-shirts, you’ll need to have printing equipment, printing tools, and the plain t-shirts that you’re going to use as your product’s base.

Since the activity’s objective is to raise funds for charities, it is helpful since the operations will only be on a made-to-order basis. You get to measure exactly how large your profit can be without compromising the quality of the product.

Tips for Your Custom T-shirt Designs

Know your Charity. Knowing your charity will help you think of an appropriate design for your product that may attract your target market easily. Create original quotes and statements which you may add on the designs of your shirt.

You may also create photographs and paintings that reflect your chosen charity’s visions and goals. Making your product attached with your charity will help you connect more to people and encourage them to help the charity too.

Know the Latest Trends. If you’re on the business of selling shirts, you need to create a window of opportunity for yourself through getting creative, selling quality products, and letting people know more of your purpose.

Adding hints of the latest trends on your product will help you expand your target market more and persuade them on buying your items.

Set your Price. Fundraising events differ from businesses in that they last shorter, the profits don’t necessarily get back on the operation cycle and the sales get donated straight to charities. Prices of items on these two also differ in that businesses get to price depending on the current market price and suggested retail prices, while fundraising activities get to price their product depending on the needs of their charity.

Add Priceless Value on Your Product. There are a lot of fundraising organizations that use their own talent and artistry to encourage donations from people. For the Custom T-shirts plan, you may add customized signatures by people on your beloved charity on the shirt you are selling.

Doing this will make your buyers feel privileged in having your products. There’s this one fundraising event that happened in Japan where they let Cancer patient children play on fabric paint and create their original designs on shirts. It was a fun and effective idea since their fundraising event is really successful and they’ve collected almost $480,000 in just a day!

Printed merchandise such as custom t-shirts are a great way to spread awareness about one’s cause and encourage people to raise funds for it. While it may require some capital to start, giving to charity is always a worthwhile endeavor.

Saving the Hungarian Yellow Chicken

Three hundred years ago, this breed of chicken was known to be one of the genetically pure strains of poultry left in the whole world.

This breed can be described as having little circular wattles and red lobes. The eggs they lay are medium-sized and creamy. Moreover, they lay them at a rate of one egg for every  48 hours. They can simply live in both pastures and barns.

This breed of chicken is very rare. Even in its country of origin, Hungary, this type of chicken is still difficult to locate. In reality, the number of breeders can still be counted using one hand. Because of the wars in Hungary and their cross-breeding practices with other birds for business, these birds became nearly extinct. You may see some noticeable traits of our Hungarian Yellows in the New Hampshire breeds of poultry.

We still need your help to re-grow herds all over Canada.

Anybody can help save a rare breed Yellow Hungarian Chicken!

Saving the Lacombe Pig

HLC and its functioning members successfully saved the Lacombe Pig from extinction in 2018. The Lacombe is a crossbreed of sows and boars of Danish Landrace and the ancestor of Chester White.

The Lacombe has been known by pork producers since 1957. The breed became famous quickly as 1,743 pigs were recorded in 1981, composed of 648 boars and 1,095 females.

Currently, we are exerting effort to re-establish some of the herds all over the country. With only less than 7 pure breeding females, this breed is at risk of becoming extinct.

To describe the Lacombe, it is white, medium-sized, and can easily be tamed. Its ears are huge and saggy, with a body that’s long and have short legs.  It is also somewhat lean in structure. The breed is known for its quick-paced growth and submissiveness, especially the full-grown females.

We still need your help to re-develop herds all over Canada.

Everyone can help to save a rare breed!
