We’ve partnered with Absolute Apparel to bring you a t-shirt design challenge in support of National Foster Care Month. Help us complete the new Spring apparel line in our Love Shop by submitting your original design. By sharing your time and talent, we believe you can make an impact in the lives of youth who are currently in foster care. The contest is open to all ages and one design will be selected from a "Littles" division (18 and under), and another from the "Olders" division (19 and up). Each winner will receive a printed tee with their custom design and a spotlight feature.
At Spokane Angels we believe in the power of love and the value of friendship and positive role models for kids and youth in foster care. We connect people passionate about making a difference in the foster care community to our most vulnerable children and youth who have experienced neglect and abuse, and to the selfless parents who care for them. We also believe that Spokane is one of the most compassionate cities in the country, and that is why "Spokane Cares" is the theme for this design challenge. We want to see designs that align with our core values: COMMUNITY. EMPOWERMENT... and HOPE. Feel free to incorporate our brand colors, but with full color printing, the possibilities are endless!
How does it work?
BRAINSTORM AN IDEA - Don't worry, this is the hardest part! What do you think would look awesome on a t-shirt or hoodie? Iconic designs often have smart concepts behind them. Look for inspiration, gather your thoughts, pull out your notebook and get started! Designs should be no larger than 8.5 x 11" and can be full color (but don't have to be).
SUBMIT YOUR DESIGN - When your design is ready for the big lights, send it in an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. This will be the image that the community will get the chance to vote on. Please submit all entries by 11:59pm PST on May 10th, 2020.
THE COMMUNITY WILL VOTE - During the voting period, people from all over the Spokane area will vote on the top designs. When the time is up, we'll tally the votes and announce a winner for each division – be sure to spend this time shamelessly promoting it all over the web. Voting details will be posted on Instagram and Facebook, so be sure to follow along over the next couple weeks.
WINNER, WINNER, CHICKEN DINNER! - Soon you’ll see your design for sale and your name up in lights. Absolute Apparel will print our new designs and all proceeds raised throughout May will go directly to Spokane Angels. These funds allow our staff to continue matching children and families to volunteers within our programs. They also help us continue the work of serving and meeting the needs of the children and families already receiving our services. This is how your time and talent can directly impact the life of a child in foster care! Congrats, you Difference Maker!
