Here's something worth highlighting: Loren Brichter of Atebits has collaborated with the awesome online t-shirt shop United Pixelworkers to offer a limited run of Letterpress [Free] inspired shirts, and the best part is that Loren will be donating his portion of the profits directly to charity.

In the face of the hardships our country has been facing in recent days, namely the Hurricane Sandy victims on the East Coast, this is a fantastic way to show your love for Atebits' fantastic new word game while feeling extra good for doing so. For every shirt sold about $5 will be donated to help out those affected.

Hey, I'll tell you one thing: I was totally on board for buying a Letterpress shirt anyway when I first saw them. We thought it was a simply fantastic word game in our review, and the t-shirt design showing a 5x5 grid of game boards is a really nice looking design. Knowing that part of my purchase will go towards a good cause is just icing on the cake.

Show your love for Letterpress and more importantly for those in need by visiting the United Pixelworkers website before Monday in order to get your hands on one of these stylish tees, and if you haven't jumped on the Letterpress bandwagon just yet then get moving as it's free to download and play and will likely become your latest iOS obsession, as it has to the rest of the internet.

    I don't understand why this t-shirt is being promoted here, anything less than 100% of the proceeds is disgusting. if you want to buy a shirt cool, if you want to help the victims of hurricane Sandy, don't buy a crappy T-shirt, give $20 to the Red Cross and 100% of that money will go to the relief.

      First off, he's donating all the "profits" from the sale of the shirts. Do you think this guy is made of money or something? T-Shirts are not free.

      Why are there always haters...

         Your are correct, T-shirts are not free, but they don't cost $22 dollars either! LOL
        Of that money, only $5 is actually being given to the hurricane relief, maybe Loren Brichter isn't profitting from this sale, but online t-shirt shop United Pixelworkers certainly is and THAT is disgusting. I'm not hating, I'm using my common sense, like that saying goes, "Common sense is not a common thing."

        but like I stated before, if anyone wants to actually help, then donate to the Red Cross or some other "reputable" organization to ensure that the money and ALL of the money is actually going to the relief and not some internet t-shirt shops bank account.

        Considering that the author of the article came right out and said, "This is a great t-shirt that I would buy, and the fact that some of the money goes to charity is a bonus," what exactly are you complaining about?  

        This blog probably would have posted a little piece about "limited edition t-shirts" associated with a hot, flavor-of-the-moment game without any need for a connection to charity. The fact that the license-holder is donating *all* of his share of the profits to a worthy, timely cause is definitely a noteworthy angle to the story. Until you see them advising people to make this kind of purchase instead of donating to direct assistance, you might want to climb down off your high horse.

    Love this game!!!

    Sigh.. I love this game, but I hate the bizarre angle on Sandy. What about Haiti? There's a looming famine due to destroyed crops on top of the 50+ casualties already, and still it's the fucking east coast of USA that gets the media attention?
    In Sweden, there's even more media coverage on the presidential election, and the consequences for Romney's popularity due to Sandy, than media coverage of what has happened on Haiti.
    Needless to say, I won't buy one of these shirts, good looking as they might be.

      I'm confused by the dichotomy you've set up. Because there are other people in the world experiencing tragedy, I--as an American--shouldn't worry about helping my East Coast neighbors?

      • deathbyedvin

        That would be the ignorant nationalist way of seeing it.
        If you should donate 20 dollars (or in this case 5, LOL on the profit margin), put the money not in the worlds richest country, but where it is really needed.
        Considering your "neighbors on the East cost" is just a nationalist notion which in itself pisses me off. That said, my rant was on the fact that there has been virtually nothing but news on Sandy and the tragedy on the East Cost, whereas there's been less coverage on Sandy and the tragedy on Haiti than coverage on Sandy and the "tragedy" for Romney's campaigning, I mean WTF?!
        In conclusion, yes, you should help "your neighbors", everyone should strive to help everyone, but that probably makes me a socialist prick in your eyes.

         This is a bit of a nitpick, so apologies in advance. But the US isn't considered the world's richest country. There are multiple ways of trying to figure out who the richest is, each with flaws, but the one I see most commonly  by GDP, where the US ranks at #7 (Forbes, 2012).

        But considering Haiti wouldn't be on a list of "richest countries" to begin with, I do see your point. I don't know that I agree with it--but I hear where you're coming from.

    I've had the idea to make a letterpress t-shirt for a while now, and clearly I should move forward with it because this one is far to busy. It should just be a single game with the tiles silk screened on both the inside and outside of a white t-shirt to correspond to the low and high red and blue color saturation s, then with the letters silk screened on top.
