Moving on...

It's been a great nearly 4 years - thanks to everyone for their support! Time for us to move on... will be closing up shop & the current 'phase' of thehinitiative this weekend.

New t-shirt fundraising help section : )

We've just created a new section for charities and other non-profit groups with some info on fundraising using t-shirts or getting t-shirts for yourselves!
We've finally figured it must be useful information to share as we've received lots of emails asking for help/ideas etc in this area. Let us know what you think, and if there's anything else you need to know and we'll pop it up there to share too! : )
Click here to head over to the T-shirt Information & Help for Charities now and please feel free to pass this on to others who need it : )

It's been too long since our last post and we had to talk about a new discovery: Fair trade toddler and infants shoes that look great! Skeanie shoes are Australian designed leather shoes, and Skeanie are a preferred provider of the Australian Podiatry Association (NSW). So, these shoes are fair, look great and are good for baby and toddler feet. They ship internationally too so don't worry about missing out!

Our favourites are the Deck Shoes in Chocolate for boys and the Loafers in Luxurious Cream for girls, both pictured below.

A really really BIG price reduction!

...the shop will be closed for the holiday season after get your Christmas orders in early! : )

$10 and $15 t-shirt deals

We've reduced some more of our end of line sale items to $10 and $15!

Note that these no longer contribute towards the charities as either our agreements with them have expired and/or these low prices don't even cover the cost of making the t-shirts.

But the good thing is that you get to walk away with a real bargain : )

Check out the online shop to see what's available....

The men get their share finally!

After many years of Glassons selling the Breast Cancer Research Trust charity t-shirts for the girls, their "brother" company Hallensteins is finally getting really into it.
I just got an email from Hallensteins promoting / announcing their ProDesign t-shirt collection in support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. A really wide range of t-shirt designs and artists!! Great stuff! And all $40 each with $10 going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation ...pretty good for snazzy looking tees. My fave's the Richardson tee : )

I'm wondering what you, the all important customer, thinks: are charity t-shirts in bountiful supply now every which way you turn??

Now that the huge clothing companies have covered both bases, with access to such awesome design talent. ....maybe it's fine time thehinitiative moved on!! : )

NZ’s Top Tee Designer is Found

Andrew Harbott, one of our designers from the Mental Health Foundation 2008 collection (the Normal is Over-rated horse/unicorn design), has made it into the ranks of NZ's top tee designer!!

Andrew will have his winning design created into a t-shirt, which will be sold throughout Hallensteins stores nationwide. His t-shirt will be part of an impressive collection of designs by some of New Zealand’s leading graphic designers and artists, such as Otis Frizzell, Stephen Richardson, Shine, Inhouse, Federation and the Bro’ Town illustrators who have collaborated with Scribe.

In-store and online from mid-November, $10 from every t-shirt sold will be donated to Make-A-Wish NZ, with each dollar going directly towards making wishes come true for children with life threatening illnesses.
Awesome work Andrew!! : )
