Support Create For A Cause

Tomorrow is the 16th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide. In memory of the one million people who were killed, Create for a Cause would like to raise money for food and school fees for the children at Gisimba Orphanage. The genocide left thousands upon thousands orphaned and Gisimba Orphanage was one of the few sanctuaries during that time, saving over 400 children. Gisimba currently houses approximately 200 kids ranging from babies to teens while supporting an additional 100 who are in foster care. Ten years ago, almost all were genocide victims, but many of the newer arrivals have been orphaned by AIDS. Because their parents were HIV+, a number of the orphans are also infected.

100% of the t-shirt sale proceeds will go towards food and school fees at Gisimba Orphanage. The goal is to raise $4000 for Gisimba Orphanage.
We received more of Jon Theiss' previously sold-out, popular t-shirt design in more colors! Thanks to Save Khaki for donating the super-soft tees and to Lincoln Mayne for volunteering to silkscreen them.

We are also currently raising more funds for AFEM, South Kivu's Women Media Association which focuses on reporting on sexual violence in the Democratic Repubic of Congo and have a few more tees available too!

Please check out these awesome tees and forward along to your friends!
email me at Chrissie@createforacause.com if you are interested!
Payments can be made either by Paypal

and sent to:
