I got an email the other day from this great group of guys called The Yellow Bird Project. They make and sell t-shirts which have been designed by bands and which all proceeds go to various charities. The Wolf Parade shirt was created with proceeds being donated to the Glass Casters Union. The design for the shirt came from a drawing Dan of Wolf Parade did for the Glass Casters Union. The organization creates limited edition recycled glass ornaments and all profits from the sale of the ornaments go back to their local community (Eugene, OR) in the form of assistance for homeless and low-income people through emergency services, housing, jobs, training, and other charitable endeavors. To purchase the t-shirt go to www.yellowbirdproject.com/wolfparade.html. The shirts are $25 USD. To purchase a Wolf Parade glass ornament contact the Glass Casters Union at: email@example.com.
