Help spread the word and support a good cause!
Mission Orbisculate t-shirts, hats, mugs, magnets, aprons, baby bibs and other squirt-protection essentials benefit our partner charity, Carson's Village, which helps families in the immediate aftermath of a loss of a loved one.
We would love to hear about your decision to support Mission Orbisculate and Carson’s Village. Please send us your thoughts here and we’ll post them below.

When we lost our father, we were amazed at how little guidance and support was available for the many things needed when someone passes away. Carson’s Village is working to change that. The organization helps grieving families with everything from funeral arrangements to finding ways to defray burial costs to information on organ donations to advice on writing an obituary. In addition, they support the family for over a year to ensure that they are healing in a healthy way on their path to their ‘new normal.’ All totally for free.
If you would like to donate to Carson’s Village directly, you can do so here.
The proceeds from anything you purchase will go to Carson’s Village after a small portion of the funds is used to cover basic Mission Orbisculate costs. 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. Almost all work is being done voluntarily or paid for out of our own pockets. The only exception (the “small portion of the funds” referred to above) is the costs associated with designing and maintaining a website and mailing list. 2) Café Press, the company producing and distributing Orbisculation Nation merch, does take a cut from every sale to cover production costs, staff, raw materials, etc. If you would like to know how much of your purchase goes to Carson’s Village/Orbisculation Nation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can provide that information.
