Hi everybody! A couple of days ago I asked if I should sell ‘Black Lives Matter’ shirts and there was a pretty large demand, so I decided to start! I am selling all regular t shirts for $12 dollars, and tie dye shirts for $15. 75% of the proceeds will go to Strong Youth, a non-profit organization based in Long Island. They are committed to youth, family and community development organization specializing in youth and gang violence prevention and intervention. We chose this organization because they are dedicated to educating and empowering our communities to provide alternatives for our youth in Long Island! The other 25% of the profits will go to supplies. We are not looking to make a profit, which is why we chose to donate the money to Strong Youth. I will be posting receipts as well once the money is donated! In addition, if you have a design in mind that you don’t see here, I can most likely make it, just lmk! I have every size (adult and child) and can make the shirt in any color you want! DM me to order yours today!!!!!
