One small company.  One loud message.  One powerful mission.  

To help save animals.  Pretty simple, right?  We think so.  

Every 3 months we will launch a new t-shirt campaign supporting one specific animal group we feel needs attention.  Our strategy is to bring public awareness to the crises these animals are experiencing.  We will campaign on behalf of the featured animal for 3 months before retiring our campaign and starting a new t-shirt campaign for a new group of animals needing our help.  This will be our cycle.  This will be our formula.  This will be our life’s work, every 3 months.

This is a plan of action we feel confident in; we feel it will give every featured animal group an equal platform.  Too often we see speciesism and favoritism displayed in the animal kingdom between domestic, wildlife and farm animals.  Sadly, we feel this is causing great division and leaving some animals without support from their fellow mankind.  To us, this imbalance in support is troubling and heartbreaking, especially when we have numerous groups of animals being abused, mistreated and/or placed on the critical endangered species list at an alarming rate.  We are deeply concerned about this. We hope you are as well.  

With the purchase of each campaign t-shirt, we will donate a portion of sales to the designated cause fighting to better the lives and future of the animal group we campaigned for.  At the end of each campaign, we will publish the group(s) name(s) of the organizations we will send our donation to at year-end.  We will also publish a short summary of their cause and specific goals, contact information and a link to their website on our website following the conclusion of our campaign.  

Your purchase is not only helping support our mission, it is helping to support the featured animal group in need.  For this, we can't thank you enough.      

With so many courageous and active groups aiding and supporting animal rights, we feel it's best to focus our undivided attention on one animal group at a time.   We wish we could focus everyday and every minute to every animal that needs us, but that is not the reality we live in.  We are confident every animal group we campaign for will receive some sort of support and attention not only from us, but also from you, our friend, who cares just as much as we do.  Your purchase of a t-shirt alone supports this mission and is enough to bring some hope and much needed dialog during and after the campaign has dissolved.

#CarbsAreBaeBae

Because humans are animals and need saving too. 

For this current campaign, we decided to educate people on the importance of their dietary choices.  

Today, rich and poor nations alike face a growing health issue.  With the world population being slightly over 7 billion, it is now estimated about 2.1 billion people globally are obese or overweight and have serious health complications because of it.  This growing issue is a problem for all of us in every region, income bracket and race. 

The good news is we now live in a day and age where social media has helped to produce a growing demand for companies to be more transparent about their products.  It has also serves as a tool to educate people and form strong communities of advocates and food activists.  Because of this, more consumers are researching and educating themselves about what exactly is in the food they eat. And it's with this knowledge that more "Golden Arches" are falling and closing down as more people shop smarter and adopt healthier diets.  However, the aforementioned data shows there is still an enormous amount of work to be done.  For this, we will do our part as activists to share what we know during this campaign and beyond.  

So what are carbohydrates, aka carbs?  Carbohydrates or "carbs", are macronutrients consisting of sugars, starches and fibers.  In addition to being an essential nutrient, they are the structural materials that comprise plant foods.  And as we all know, plants produce some of the best products nature can offer us for survival and longevity: fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes.  These disease-fighting foods are rich in carbs and fiber, and also contain protein, heathy fats, vitamins, and minerals -- all important nutrients needed to perform at a high level both physically and mentally.  Simply put, carbs are the most important source of energy for your body and the preferred fuel for your brain.  And because we need them, want them, desire them, carbs are "bae" or what we say here at our office, #CarbsAreBaeBae.

For the next few months, we will highlight and show the difference between good and bad carbs.  We will also discuss the importance of plant-based diets.  Let's have some fun with this campaign.  #CraziesAndWeirdos

#ClarkKentWasVegan

Some vegans feel they are not from this planet.  Neither was Clark Kent.  Vegans and non-vegans alike when exposed to the sun, produce their own vitamin D, an important steroid hormone responsible for a wide-range of health benefits including, fighting off diseases and boosting energy levels.  The sun is also where Clark Kent restored his energy levels, while boosting his super powers.  Vegans do not believe in harming any living beings and do everything in their power to protect the innocent.  So did Clark Kent.  In fact, he didn't even believe in killing his own enemies. Vegans don't just talk the talk, they walk the walk as well and fight for the preservation of this planet, their home.  Clark Kent wasn't just talking the talk either.  Nope.  He literally flew around the world and beyond in his red cape making shit happen.  

Sure, Clark Kent, like most of us, was raised in a society believing certain traditions were the norm.  In fact, he grew up on a farm, one of the oldest traditions in human culture.  Also, like most of us, American pop culture may have had influence on him as a teenager growing up in a small town, but he later found himself, discovered his super powers and went on to do great things.  Does this sounds familiar?   Because it is.  It's what humanity is about.  Learning and evolving.   Clark Kent was one of us #CraziesAndWeirdos.  He was one of the good guys.  

This campaign was about the preservation of our oceans, the dwindling marine life and climate change.  The fortress of solitude, Superman's man cave he created, was located in the cold arctic, surrounded by icebergs, water and marine life.  It was there he stayed often to find inner peace from a world of evil and hate.  It too is where he found reassurance to continue to go out in the brave world to fulfill his destiny to do great things for this planet.  Social media is the new fortress of solitude.  Let's lean on each other for unity and help and continue to take on the world.  

We were able to raise over $1100 from our #ClarkKentIsVegan campaign.  The recipient of this donation is Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project, a non-profit organization with a primary mission to end dolphin exploitation and slaughter once and for all.  Per RODP, dolphins are regularly captured, harassed, slaughtered and sold into captivity around the world – all in the name of profit. The Dolphin Project works not only to halt these slaughters in countries around the world, but also to rehabilitate captive dolphins, investigate and advocate for economic alternatives to dolphin slaughter exploitation, and to put a permanent end to dolphin captivity.  Please visit their website for more information.  Thank you for your support.

#PigsReallyDoFly

"You can't influence an entire nation to go vegan, let alone, the world.  What people eat is a personal choice."

"It's impossible.  Humans cannot survive and thrive without meat."

"It will never happen.  The world will never change.  When it does, hell will freeze over and pigs will fly."

Ohhh the irony.  To our doubters and critics, we simply have this to say:  The world is changing.  Pigs.  Really.  Do.  Fly.  Pigs are also highly intelligent beings that deserve a chance to live, and spread their "wings" freely and to roam the land as much as you or the very farmers slaughtering them and millions and millions of other farm animals every second.  These defenseless animals never had a chance of living.  They are true products of their environment.  Oppressed, beaten, raped and killed.  To us, this all sounds too familiar.  Factory farming and the slaughtering of animals is truly, in our opinion, slavery and genocide.  

Our second campaign was dedicated to the 50 billion plus farm animals slaughtered worldwide every year.  During this campaign we educated the public about the conditions farm animals are born into and raised in, including their fate and the overall negative impact meat consumption has on public health and the environment.  

We were able to raise over $700 from our #PigsReallyDoFly campaign.  The recipient of this donation is Pig Placement Network, a non-profit organization with a primary mission to promote domesticated pigs as pet pigs.  What this means is they rescue, rehabilitate and work hard to place pigs into forever homes of loving families throughout the northeast region of the United States.  Please visit their website for more information.  

As a final note, we encourage members of our #CraziesAndWeirdos community to visit a local farm sanctuary in your area rescuing these innocent defenseless beings. Most farm sanctuaries are open to the public and welcome volunteers and donations.  compassionatefarming.org has a directories of sanctuaries.  Please bare in mind, this list may or may not be updated regularly and may not include all sanctuaries.

#EatWhatElephantsEat 

Our first campaign and introductory t-shirt to our line was created to help bring awareness to our two gentle, fellow herbivore, giants, the mighty elephant and rhino.  Both big and strong, both solely plant-eaters, both endangered species. We share similar diets and wanted to promote that humans too can be big and strong while thriving on just plants.  

Thanks to our #CraziesAndWeirdos community, we were able to successfully raised over $3,000 dollars for our #EatWhatElephantsEat campaign.  The recipients of this donation are Big Life Foundation, The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, and Air Shepherd.  Each organization will receive a donation of $1,100 from Crazies and Weirdos thanks to your support!  

Big Life Foundation was founded by photographer Nick Brandt and conservationist Richard Bonham.  They were the first organization in East Africa to co-ordinate cross-border anti-poaching operations.  They are an organization fighting on the front lines.  Since 2011, they have made over 1,800 arrest and seized over 3,000 poaching tools.  

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust has received worldwide acclaim.  At the heart of their organization is their Orphans' Project initiative, a program created to rescue and rehabilitate both orphan elephants and rhinos.  To date, they have hand-raised over 150 infant elephants and successfully reintegrated orphans into the wild.   

Air Shepherd is a nonprofit organization created to supply Africa's wildlife rangers with aerial support, backed by drones with technology invented by University of Maryland Professor Thomas Snitch.  With successful trials and over 350 missions logged to date, this technology has proven to be an advantage in the fight against poachers.  Not only can these drones view poachers at night, the technology they are equipped with allows ground teams to predict where poacher will strike next.  

We encourage you all to visit these organization websites for more information involving their humanitarian efforts to help save elephants and rhinos:
