My first design of this kind was made for MarchForOurLives following the Parkland Shooting and Marjory Stoneman Douglas
High School. Last week I was making pins/Christmas ornaments for keepsakes from previous shootings when I heard about the latest tragedy in Thousand Oaks. I started by making a sticker like this for the kids at Stoneman Douglas to wear to the march, I cannot believe I've had to make so many since.
Initially selling on my Etsy store, the manual labour, fees and printing company costs take a lot of time and wasted money that could be donated. Since no one else has the rights to sell this design I decided to open up a Represent campaign with minimal maintenance so that 100% of the profits can be easily donated to the victims families.

Who are you? Why Are You doing this?
I am a medical students with no direct relation to any of the victims. I run my own Etsy shop/Tshirt company and this cause just happened to find me.
As someone who cherishes photos and keepsakes, I thought things like this would provide me with some comfort had I been in such a situation.
Additionally, I feel the names of those who have lost their lives to senseless tragedy deserve to be said, written, and spread 1000x more than the names of the shooter.
I have put my designs on Represent.com so I have a platform that I can easily manage in addition to my store where I am able to donate 100% of the profits without any costs effecting my business.
How do I know where the donations are going?
To make things less complicated, I will publicly donate the profits to the current gofundme set up for the cause once the funds become available.
I need these by a certain date. Can you help?
I'm not sure Represent.com has the capability to handle express/rush orders. Please contact me on Instagram or directly on my Etsy shop and I will do my best to find you a printer that will get you the shirts by when you need them.
