CHICAGO -- Del Reid and Dan Gigante have combined their love of sports with a passion for helping people. The duo launched the company "26 Shirts" in Buffalo back in 2013 to raise money for families in need and several charitable organizations. Every two weeks a different sports-themed t-shirt goes on sale for a limited time. For every shirt sold, $8 is donated directly to a specific cause or family in need.

This winter they started in their second city, Chicago, and joined Josh and Jarrett on Sports Feed to discuss their mission and show off some of the cool Chicago-themed shirts they've sold.

So far in less than two years, 26 Shirts has donated more than $135,000 to families in need and various foundations.

You can learn more about the company at and follow them on Twitter and @26ShirtsCHI.
