Save The World One T-Shirt At A Time


2008-12-17

Two seniors from San Ramon Valley High School in Northern California, Amanda Calamoneri and Angela Accomazzo, want to help SAVE THE WORLD. To do this they have designed and sold over 150 t-shirts to raise money for various charities, including Reef Check. Each t-shirt says “My Tee Saves the World” on the front in white block letters, and on the back is the name of a charity. In only four weeks, they have already raised nearly one hundred dollars for each of the five charities and they are still selling! The five selected charities are Reef Check (purple), American Cancer Society (red), Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (black), Nothing But Nets (yellow), and Save the Whales Again Campaign (blue). The t-shirts cost $12 and just under $6 goes to the charity that t-shirt supports.

Amanda and Angela are happy to say Reef Check is one of their top sellers- “it is very exciting for us to know we are helping protect reefs worldwide and contributing to stop the endangerment of reefs.” If you would like more information, you can email them at savetheworldt@yahoo.com. Their website is currently under construction, but soon people across the country will be able to buy their charity t-shirts online!
