          Threadless Causes uses community-based design for the power of good, giving artists more opportunities to design cool things for meaningful organizations. It's been almost exactly a month since the earthquake devastated Christchurch, New Zealand, and we're glad to have chosen the design for this challenge. It's not only an awesome design, but its also made by a New Zealander! We're donating 25% from the sale of this tee to Architecture for Humanity's efforts to rebuild the city of Christchurch. Watch as our own Joe Van Wetering (Chicago) chats it up with David Creighton-Pester (New Zealand) via Skype.

            Patrice Pike and her band performing "Kiss Me Baby" at the Black Bart Playhouse in Murphys, California. The thing I remember most about this show is that Patrice was sick. She was fighting a frog in her throat all night long. This is the last song of a two hour show, and her voice finally gave out (in a cool way) on literally the last word of the last song of the night. Girl gives everything she has.....

                    Founder and CEO of Architecture for Humanity, Cameron Sinclair says that architecture is about more than just buildings. Architecture also has the ability to transform communities and build resilience within them because, said Sinclair at the What Design Can Do conference in Amsterdam, architecture is where life happens. He also talks about the need to embed architects in a community, collaboration and creating jobs and other opportunities.

                      http://www.habitat.org/lac/ "FRAGILE" is an animation about the recent earthquake in Chile and the fragility of life. Even though we can’t control nature, we can design buildings and cities that are safer. For this reason, I chose "HABITAT FOR HUMANITY" for people who would like to donate for Shelter solutions and "ARCHITECTURE FOR HUMANITY", for the Chile Earthquake Reconstruction Fund. You can donate directly to Habitat for Humanity for Shelter solutions for low-income families. habitat.org/cd/giving/donate.aspx?link=252&source_code=DHQMA0000E1108 You can also donate directly to Architecture For Humanity for the Chile Earthquake Reconstruction Fund architectureforhumanity.org/donate/form?program=chile Directed and Animated by Andrea Lira.
