Maybe people are also donating, but the shirt serves as a conversation starter – as does any “awareness” ribbon. People buy ribbons, bracelets, hats, socks, etc. with awareness ribbons and slogans because part of it is donated to charity AND it serves to spark conversation with others. It’s a way of saying “I more than just FB status care about Japan, if you’d like to, talk to me, and I can tell you where I helped.” More than that, it’s a way of showing people affected by the disaster “Hey, I know I live far away, but I care about whether or not you’re ok and your life can return to normal. I’m trying to show you in ways other than just my speech – you are not alone. You matter. We care.”
If you’re not a fan of awareness ribbon items, that’s cool, but recognize their function is more than just for a partial donation.
Simple, effective, and meaningful. Well done! :)
Awww man, you had to get two models with Asian decent. They look so happy with their smiling faces, it just makes you buy the shirt. Its like subliminal marketing…. that helps the world. Its a mind boggling concept that I can barely understand.
Oh and this is like my first post in three months. Hi everyone. :)
Oh and johnsonflores donating his DBH money to help Japan is just remarkable. Shows great character!
@johnsonflores great job on the design!
@karyn2002 nice explanation of the purpose of cause marketing t-shirts like this. I hadn’t thought of those reasons.

Johnson Flores you the man. DBH, way to go.
This makes me feel all warm inside, and outside too!
to me this is more than a t-shirt
got it spread the news on facebook everyone
If there are any concerns or criticisms about how this relief effort is being conducted, you can contact DBH via e-mail about it. If anybody has anything negative to say about this relief effort they can either keep it to themselves or take it elsewhere. Regardless of how you feel about it, this is helping. That’s a fact. Your negativity is not helping anyone anywhere, that is also a fact.
All solidarity actions are welcome, I also think it’s more than a T-shirt
thank you “thestray” unfortunately we have to remind a small percentage of people that we are all on this planet together and to quote Milton “no man is an Island”. Its time to come together. These are the days that can show what unity can do in the face of adversity.
johnson flores thank you, i just saw that you are donating your winnings, thats solid gold, i have given to the red cross as well but nothing to that extent, and ya everyone facebook the link lets sell these shirts.
We here at DBH share your concerns regarding companies profiting from charitable donations. That is why DBH is making no profit from this shirt. The profits will be donated to the American Red Cross for Japan Relief. Thank you for doing your part and supporting the American Red Cross in their relief efforts.
Should you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to email me directly.
Thanks Wotto. I hope it is clear now to people that no profit is gain from this project. I commend you DBH for your good deeds.
