The Yellowbird Project

THIS NON-PROFIT WORKS WITH INDIE-ROCK BANDS
TO CHAMPION CHARITIES



The Yellowbird Project is an artistic endeavor. Headquartered in Montreal, Project members are enthusiastic about what they do. They are, themselves, fans of the music and they have found a way to help people with their passion.

How It Works: Yellowbird approaches the bands they like and ask them to select a worthy charity and then allows the band to design their own tee-shirt for sale at the website. The folks at Yellowbird produce and sell the shirts (which cannot be purchased anywhere else) and then send the proceeds of the sales to the charity that the band selected! It's a beautiful thing.

With a crazy-great indie rock lineup of bands offering up their own designs - it's wicked cool to give and wear these shirts. (And it just feels right to support a great cause!) Here are the current bands with tee-shirt designs and the charity (in parenthesis) that they support:


Stars (Le ChaƮnon)
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - (Art for Change)
The National (Safe Space)
Holly Throsby
(Amnesty International)
Hayden (The Acoustic Neuroma Association of Canada)
Broken Social Scene (Lake Ontario Waterkeeper)
Wolf Parade (Glass Casters Union)
The Shins (The Nature Conservancy)
Devendra Banhart (The Teenage Cancer Trust)
Wolfmother (The Teenage Cancer Trust)
Au Revoir Simone (Transportation Alternatives)
King Creosote (Greenpeace)
Joseph Arthur (MercyCorps)
My Brightest Diamond (Road Recovery)
Rilo Kiley (the Elliott Smith Memorial Fund)

Broken Social Scene - Cause = Time

Look Good - Feel Great. Tee-shirts are $25 which is less than what you would pay for bad concert tees. These are great conversation pieces and they bring you closer to the band than a generic tee with the band's name on it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

What a great idea. They have some nice t-shirts there. 25 bucks is a bit pricy for a t-shirt and some of the charities are funny, but all in all a very nice concept.
