Chicago Venture Sells Sports-Themed Shirts Benefiting Families in Need
A new start-up company in Chicago is trying to make a difference–through T-shirts.
It’s called “26Shirts,” and every two weeks they create a custom sports shirt to sell online. $8 from each sale is then donated to a family in need or a charity.
"We launched in Buffalo, New York, a little over a year ago and managed to raise $54,000 for needy families," said Del Reid, who started the company.
The first T-shirt in Chicago benefited the family of Blackhawks assistant equipment manager Clint Reif, who passed away in December. The current shirt benefits Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith's "Keith Relief" Fund.
