Wearable Hope, an apparel website created to help drive awareness and generate funds for nonprofit organizations, will begin partnering with national nonprofit organizations.  After a successful inaugural month of supporting organizations with the guaranteed $10 donation per shirt purchased, $10,000 was donated to nonprofit organizations based in Austin, Texas where Wearable Hope is headquartered.

Each week, Wearable Hope partners with a different nonprofit organization and provides custom t-shirt designs unique to their cause. For each t-shirt sold, Wearable Hope donates $10 back to that organization and together they promote the cause in efforts to raise awareness for the mission of the nonprofit.

In honor of Veteran’s Day next week, Wearable Hope is partnering with Team Red, White & Blue, an organization whose mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their communities through physical and social activity. Wearable Hope t-shirts sell for $20.00 to $25.00 and will benefit Team Red, White & Blue beginning Tuesday, November 5 through Monday, November 11.

“The idea for Wearable Hope came after we started custom printing on t-shirts. We wanted to create a unique giving and awareness raising component for t-shirt printing - and Wearable Hope was born,” said Dan Graham, CEO of BuildASign.com, Wearable Hope’s parent company. “We thought this was a perfect way for people to make a donation to causes they support and get a unique, stylish t-shirt in return that will help drive awareness to that cause.”

Wearable Hope is run by BuildASign.com, an Austin, Texas - based online custom printing provider which also operates AlliedShirts.com and Printcopia.com. The BuildASign.com founders and staff have always prioritized giving back to the community, helping those in need and driving social awareness.

Since 2008, BuildASign.com has contribued more than $600,000 to over 750 local and national nonprofit organizations, and has received national recognition for its donation of more than 300,000 Welcome Home banners and signs to the friends and families of returning military service members, valued at over $9 million.
