Inspiring stories about GOOD people doing GOOD things
Candice Vleugels - Friday, April 01, 2011
Yes you are right! I am talking about our new 'Be the Change' t shirts in guys and girls colours. The inspiration for these came from entering a post for the job on 99designs.com. We stated that it needed to indicate global helping hands in the design. The phrase comes from Ghandi's quote 'Be the Change you would like to see in the world'. Our winning designer came up with the picture of a world map with the text 'Be the Change' through it. What a fabulous symbol...every country of the world with the text 'Be the Change' through it. If we can actually achieve this in our lives Ghandi would be a very happy man, and the world will be a very happy place. Karma creates karma, so why not do what we as individuals can to Be that Change. From this design came the job of sourcing a funky fitting tshirt that did some good in the world. A t shirt that people would say 'Yes that style and fit looks cool, Oh and you have something really meaningful printed on it!'. And it was at this point that we came across Muchacho; who wanted to give a percentage of their wholesale sales to disadvantaged kids in Brazil; to show them the beauty of the world through art. From here we needed to choose materials and print colours and ahh wella a tshirt had evolved from a mere feelgood feeling. If you want to wear a shirt with significance, or want to give a funky gift with a cause, we have free shipping and if you buy it through one of our featured fundraisers then they will make $8 towards their world helping cause...So lets spread the feel good factor and wear it on our clothes.......

GoodieDo are fortunate to have partnered with the cool, retro styled Muchacho Clothing in Sydney to print our very own 'Be the Change' tshirts. These t shirts will be available later in February, so keep an eye open for new products on our website. Muchacho means: a mischievious young man in spanish. After many skype chats I finally met the founder, owner Andy Cameron and had a great chat about his travels and his passion for Brazil. Andy will donate 10% of all wholesale sales to GoodieDo to a chosen charity in Brazil. His inspiration for starting Muchacho came from his travels there, using his own photography and creativity to design his cool, retro beach styled t shirts. He had a dream to start a design school in Brazil for disadvantaged children. Made from high grade cotton and designed with cuts that look and feel attractive, Muchacho has become a phenomenon in Sydney around the Paddington and Bondi Markets. Even Sam Worthington the star of Avatar has been snapped wearing these t shirts. This is another quality company now spreading the gift of giving. We cant wait to receive our new t shirts.
