Hey there Orbisculation Nation, are you looking for a way to make a splash with your clothing, support a great charity and help spread the word? Then this is the spot for you. Orbisculation Nation resident artist Megan O’Hara has developed a pair of fantastic options for you to choose from:
100% of the proceeds from anything you purchase will go to a family-run charity called Carson’s Village.
When we lost our father, we were amazed at how many things there are to do when someone passes away -- and how little guidance and support is on offer for handling those challenges. Carson’s Village is working to change that. They help grieving families with everything from making funeral arrangements to finding ways to defray burial costs to providing information on organ donations to offering guidance in writing an obituary. All completely for free.
Their mission has always been important, but it has added significance with all the extra hurdles presented by the coronavirus. We were struck by Carson’s Village message and even more impressed by their warmth when we reached out to them. You can donate directly to Carson’s Village without buying anything by clicking that same link.
*If you are as nerdy about words as we are -- and we hope you are -- you might, like us, reflexively feel skepticism about promises to donate all “proceeds.” So to be as clear as possible: 1) We at Orbisculation Nation don’t have any paid staff. Any work is being done voluntarily or paid for out of our own pockets. 2) Custom Ink, the company producing and vending the t-shirts, does take a cut from every sale to cover production costs, staff, raw materials, etc. When you purchase one, they will show you exactly how many dollars have been added to the total amount raised.
