Good Shirts

Wants For Sale was started in July 2007 by Christine & Justin Gignac. All of the paintings on Wants For Sale are the price of the actual item shown in the painting, whether that’s “A Slice of Pepperoni Pizza” for $3.00 or “A Gold Watch” for $287.19 - or a "First Night in Vegas" for $299, shown above.

Needs for Sale is its charitable counterpart where the items shown are donated to charity. Good Shirts is a collaboration between UNICEF, BBH New York, and Threadless. The design on each shirt symbolizes the type of aid UNICEF is delivering in the Horn of Africa. T-shirts shown here are Therapeutic Milk for $85.75, Deworming Tablets for $36.10, and Cargo Flight for $300,000. 100% of your donation will go to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to support life-saving relief efforts for children. Pretty great concept. See all 12 shirts for sale here.
