What happened in Japan was tragic. It makes me happy, though, to see the huge number of t-shirt companies that have created shirts that donate all or a portion of their proceeds to Japan. It’s incredibly generous–so thank you t-shirt companies. I wanted to round up all these shirts, so that you can have the most opportunities to donate (through buying a shirt). Buy one or all of them, it all goes to a good cause. Also, this post contains some affiliate links–any money (hopefully there will be some ’cause you guys are buying the shirts) made from these links will be donated to Japan.

Palmercash has a total of twelve designs for sale, all of which donate their full profits to Japan. I’m not quite sure which charity, though.

Threadless is selling a single Japan t-shirt, which donates 100% of the profits to the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Fund.

Karmaloop will be donating all the proceeds from their “Rising Sun” shirt to Red Cross efforts in Japan.

Wordboner has released this shirt, which will donate all profits to the Red Cross. Also, the placement of this shirt above the next shirt was completely unintentional.

Pray for Japan is selling four different designs, which donate all proceeds to the American Red Cross.

Dres13 has teamed up with Mother Falcon to create a shirt which will donate 100% of its profits to the Japanese Red Cross Society.


Ript Apparel and the artist of the shirt will be donating a total of $6 for each shirt sold to the Red Cross.

FITTED will be donating all profits from this shirt to relief efforts in Japan.

Seventh.Ink has released this “Japan Relief” shirt which will, well, donate profits to Japan relief efforts.

Goodjoe has released this interesting little design, from which all proceeds will be donated to GlobalGiving.org’s Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund.

Wardrobe (I think that’s the brand) has released this shirt for the Salvation Army to help relief efforts in Japan.

If I missed any shirts (that are still in stock), please let me know in the comments section and I’ll add them to the list. Buy some, and help Japan!
