At 26 Shirts, we sell different limited edition sports-themed t-shirts every two weeks. After a shirt's respective two week run is over, the design is retired and never sold again. We are currently operating in Buffalo, Chicago, Cincinnati, and Pittsburgh.
For every shirt sold, a donation is made to a specified family in need or charitable organization.
Family with needs like...
A daughter who’s barely a year old and fighting leukemia.
Another daughter who has had an eye removed because of a rare pediatric cancer.
A family whose son was hit by a car, and now they have to commute between Buffalo (where they live/work) and Pittsburgh (where he’s being treated).
A foundation that works to serve and help people afflicted by an ultimately lethal, yet relatively unknown condition.
From January 2016...

This is a 100% crowd-sourced campaign.
We need YOU, the artistic fan, to contribute your talent and designs for consideration.
We need YOU, the creative fan, to contribute ideas and concepts for artists to bring to life.
We need YOU, the passionate fan, to BUY THE SHIRTS!
We've recently merged with YouAndWho.com, a Buffalo-based "social good" business who provides high-quality, soft fabric shirts. So not only will they be designs you love, they'll be on shirts you love wearing.
If you are interested in participating and have a design (or designs) that you would like to submit, please get in touch with us.
We pay artists $1 from every shirt sold as compensation for their time and effort but the biggest "get" you as an artist will receive is the warm fuzzy feeling of knowing that that the time spent in Adobe Illustrator (or whatever method) was used to help out someone(s) less fortunate!
