In a time where you can buy band shirt knock-offs pretty much everywhere on the High Street, you have to look elsewhere if you want to find something original that represents what you care about.
The beauty above not only scores high marks for excellent design – and sheer randomness factor – but also because it supports a very worthy cause. Rogue NASA, a Twitter account that shares scientific and environmental news and describes itself as ‘the unofficial ‘resistance’ team’, has teamed up with Cotton Bureau to produce the super cool top, with all profits going to charity.
Cotton Bureau writes, “Science is under attack in America, and we’re here to lead the resistance (into outer space, if need be). All of Rogue NASA’s proceeds from this sale will be split between Girls Who Code and the National Math + Science Initiative.”
Girls Who Code is an American non-profit organisation dedicated to bridging the gender gap in technology by offering free after-school clubs and summer immersion programs to teenage girls so they can explore coding and get exposure to tech jobs in a fun and friendly environment. NMSI, another US initiative, aims to improve student performance in the critical subjects of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
So how does it work? You can put in your order for the Rogue NASA t-shirt, sweatshirt or hoodie until February 10th 2017, when it will be sent off to the printers and shipped out on or around February 23rd. Needless to say, we have bought two.
A last tip? The sizing seems to be generous, so make sure you explore the ‘youth’ section for further colours and styles. It’s time to go rogue and support the resistance!
