Unprecedented numbers of Americans are expressing their concerns and frustrations about the Gulf Coast oil crisis through T-shirts, Bumper Stickers and other customizable merchandise, according to CafePress, the destination for self-expression through custom apparel and gifts. To date over 45,000 new, user-designed products expressing points of view related to the crisis – such as T-shirts and Sigg water bottles – have flooded the marketplace.

Directly following the oil spill in the Gulf region, CafePress experienced a massive outpouring of concern among its highly engaged online community.

Americans across the country are designing, buying and selling items featuring oil-related phrases and visuals, including “Save the Gulf”; “Spill, Baby, Spill! How's that Whole Offshore Drillin' Thing Workin' Out for Ya now?”; “I like my Beaches oil spill free”.

In response to the passionate outpouring of commentary related to the crisis, CafePress will now donate a portion of the proceeds from each “Gulf Oil” product purchased on the site to the Gulf Restoration Network. For the past 15 years, the Gulf Restoration Network has worked to unite and empower people to protect and restore the natural resources of the Gulf Region for future generations. The Network is actively engaged in the current, on-the-ground recovery efforts dealing with the recent Gulf oil leak crisis.

“The far-reaching impact of the Gulf region oil spill has inspired our community to take a stand, broadcasting their concerns, fears, frustrations and support for the recover efforts in truly unique, personalized ways,” said CafePress Vice President of Marketing Amy Maniatis. “In addition to providing our community with a platform to express themselves, we're now pleased to provide them with a channel to contribute to the recovery efforts in the Gulf region.”

An amount equal to 10% of the final purchase price for all products tagged with "Gulf Oil" and sold through CafePress.com Marketplace during June 21, 2010 through July 31, 2010 will be donated to the Gulf Restoration Network.
