Did you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month? The Shirts For A Cure Project will be at NYCC this year (Booth #241), selling some exclusive t-shirt designs to help spread awareness and provide assistance to women with breast cancer. I’ll be signing at the booth on Friday 4-5pm, when SFAC will be offering the last 50 of the limited-edition Wonder Woman battle-axe prints for a donation of $10 or more. From the SFAC website:
The Syrentha J. Savio Endowment (SSE) was established by punk-rock photographer Mark Beemer in 2002. SSE provides financial assistance to underprivileged women who cannot afford expensive breast cancer medicine and therapy. The Shirts For A Cure Project (SFAC) was launched by SSE to give voice to the social concerns of punk bands and their many fans as well as to raise awareness about breast cancer prevention.
When a band donates a shirt design to SFAC, the design becomes exclusive to SSE. We sell the shirt and use the proceeds to help women fighting breast cancer. If you would like to support our cause please take a moment to peruse the more then 150 shirts we offer. All shirts are printed on 100% pre-shrunk cotton unless otherwise stated. For a donation of $14 (plus shipping and handling) you will be helping someone who is in need as well as receiving an exclusive shirt from your favorite band.
Not only do you get to support an important cause, but you get to do it in rockstar style. This year, they’ll be featuring new designs from Mike Cavallaro, Brian Ewing, Molly Crabapple, and an awesome Umbrella Academy shirt from Dark Horse/Gerard Way!
