26 Shirts celebrates milestone of $750,000 raised for charitable causes


(WIVB) – You’ve heard of “giving the shirt off your back”, but a Buffalo company creates shirts that give back.

26 Shirts marked a milestone on Thursday- as of this date, the t-shirt company has raised $750,000 for charitable causes and families in need.

26 Shirts creates unique t-shirt designs, often with a sports or city pride theme. For each shirt sold during a limited-time pre-order campaign, the company makes a donation to a beneficiary in need or a local charitable organization.

Hitting the $750,000 milestone amid the coronavirus pandemic is significant, the company said in a Thursday press release.

“Somehow, some way, the people of Buffalo still came together to continue buying t-shirts, support their local community, and support their fellow Buffalonians in need,” the press release says.
