This design and run of shirts has been bouncing around my head for quite a while. I wanted to offer some kind of product that would excite people…and also mean something. I am slowly working on a couple more limited run products around this name and concept that I will be leaking more details soon.
Every shirt purchased will have $5 donated to the customer’s choice to one of the below options:
Option 1 is to Planned Parenthood. With the current administration in office, making sure this organization has the funding available is extremely important to me. They do some much more than discounted testing and exams. They offer many individuals the education and assistance that is financially unattainable to many people. Hell, with the help of Planned Parenthood I learned that almost 5 years ago I was going to be a father again.
Option 2 is to Sex Workers Outreach Program. Sex workers have existed since the dawn of time. The stigma around those that work in the sex industry is ridiculous dogma based out of fear and lack of awareness and understanding. Many of the people I have booked and worked with are involved in the sex industry. Most of the general public has no clue that these strong individuals raise children, support their households and are active in their communities; and they offer a wanted and needed service to their clientele. And with no thanks to current legislation, websites are being shut down and bank accounts are being frozen and blocked. Some have even been detained and jailed indefinitely.
I know. It is just a shirt. It is just $5. But every dollar counts. Every person that supports a sex worker is doing something important and significant. You can pick up yours over in the Shop.
