Art, Clothes, Design, Human Interest by Richard

ROSA LOVES is the brainchild of a couple of friends… a graphic designer and a software developer who wanted to use their talents to help people in need. They get to know people who are involved in some heartbreaking situations, make a shirt based on that need, and use the proceeds to fill that need.

Here’s their description: First, we meet an individual, family, or a community in need. We get to know them, hear their story, and design a shirt inspired by what we’ve learned. Each T-shirt design is hand printed on sweatshop free apparel. The outside tells the story through illustration. The inside tells the story through words which are printed directly over the heart. Shirts are sold on our website. After the projected amount has been made to supply the need, we stop printing and selling the shirt, making each one part of a limited run. Finally and most importantly, we hand deliver the gift and meet the need. Friendships are made, lives are changed, and the process repeats itself with new people and new needs.

I like the idea of helping people in need. Because of that, I sent an email a couple of days ago asking them how much of my purchase actually goes toward helping the people in question. I’ll follow up here when I get a response.
