26 Shirts

“26 Shirts is not a t-shirt company... 26 Shirts is a movement.”


Company Description

26 Shirts specializes in sports-related t-shirts that give back to the community.

With new, limited-edition designs released every two weeks, each t-shirt sold results in a donation to a charitable organization or family in need. The effort is “100% crowdsourced,” meaning ideas for campaigns, designs for shirts, and sales are all derived from fans and followers. The company pays contributing artists $1 from the sale of each of the items they have designed.

26 Shirts was founded in 2013 as a year-long, community-minded service project in Buffalo, NY and has since grown into a thriving business online and in four major cities. As of October 2017, 26 Shirts has raised over $400,000, contributing to causes and individuals nationwide. In addition to its stores in Buffalo, Chicago, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh – as well as online sales – 26 Shirts hopes to expand the movement and apply their unique model of giving to communities in Seattle, Washington, DC, New York City, and others.
