Yellow Bird Project: Fashion and Music For A Cause

Style and music are quite the one-two punch, but add in a do-gooder mentality and you have yourself a hat trick. The Yellow Bird Project is an organization that sells T-shirts that bands personally design; the bands choose a charity of their choice and 100% of the profit is donated towards the cause (none of that "portion" stuff!).

The newest shirt (pictured) is from fantabulous indie rock band the Dears, from Montreal, Quebec. Fronted by the husband and wife team of Murray Lightburn and Natalia Yanchak, the shirt was designed with help from the couple's 3-year-old daughter, Neptune, whose colorful rainbow of abstract squiggles could rival something seen in the MOMA (seriously, I was there this weekend). Proceeds from the shirt will fund the Pablove Foundation, a charity dedicated to fighting childhood cancer.

The names of the bands involved read like a indie rock It List, with Rilo Kiley, the National, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, the Shins and Wolf Parade all joining this great cause. All shirts are American Apparel, which means you know they're soft and comfy, and they cost $25. So when you put one of these tees on, you won't only look cute, but you'll also know your money went to a worthy cause.
