Roman Apparel: Raising $ and Awareness with "SOLD" T-Shirt

Posted on/at 9:20 AM by Web Thing

I got a note from a friend of a friend that tuned me into what's going on over at Roman Apparel. All too often in our world of drive thru half-caff-mocha-lattes, 9 to 5 gigs and 900 channels of cable TV we get caught up in ourselves and lose sight of the bigger picture. It's ok, we are human; and once our basic needs are taken care of we tend to get a little comfortable.

On the flip side, the world is a very big place, with lots of people - many of whom can use our help. The folks at Roman Apparel and their friends saw a need - actually witnessed it first hand, and decided to to something about it, if even just to raise awareness.

The issue is Child Prostitution. I won't get into it here, but there is a wealth of information on their website. It will open your eyes and break your heart.

That being said, this SOLD Project t-shirt is a beauty. More work of fine craftsmen rather than "just some guys who make t-shirts". What's even more beautiful is that a whopping 50% of the $32 price of the SOLD Project t-shirt goes to the cause. Not only do you get a handsome tee & a chance to make an impact - but you can spread the word each and every time the person behind you in the check-out line inquires.

I hope they post how much they donated afterward to see the difference that is being made for the cause.
