So, I like to think it's the little things that count....

And I was wondering if just seeing positive words could make people feel a little bit brighter, you know?  Say... if they saw it on someone's tshirt?

(have I lost your interest yet?  I hope not.  keep reading, my pretty! you'll make a very tired year 11 kid happy!)
(haha wow.  that actually came out REALLY creepy.  it wasn't meant to be creepy!)

ANYWHO, I KNOW YOU CAN MAKE IT TO THE END!  of my post, that is.

What I was thinking, was that I start making a whole bunch of shirts with really simple but positive designs on them (like the word love, happy... whatever, i'll think of more as i go.  haha) and sell them.  Then I could give whatever profit I made from selling them to a worthwile charity.

You know?  Like, lift the general mood of the people who see people in my shirts.  Although realistically probably not very much.
but still, even a tiiiiny bit is great

I also thought this would be handy for putting as part of my service for my IB CAS requirements, for those of you who know what I'm on about.

(hope I haven't lost your interest yet)
I was wondering what all you crafty business gurus thought of my idea! 
Do you think it's worthwile?
Do you think the acutal idea it's based on is rubbish?  haha
if you said yes to the last two,
would you actually buy such a shirt?

thanks for making it to the end of my slightly ramblish story. 
if you choose to respond, I LOVE YOU.
i really need some of your MAARVELLOUS opinions here...

"Its a better story than, I dont know, I think I stole it."
"You can't come to school drunk.  Unless it's like, lunchtime.  You know, a more appropriate hour..."
"Id rather pack up than put out.. I hate putting out.. the chairs! I mean the chairs!"

I like that, I think that is a great idea, and I would buy one. And I also think it would make someone smile even more to see it in kids sizes, like toddler/baby because babies already make people smile, and to see something other than 'boob man' on a little boy would be nice!:)

Please use the Help Desk for moderator questions.  I'm not currently available full-time.  Thanks!

I'd love to send you some hand spun for a poppet!

I'd like to second javastains' idea, I love seeing little kids and esprecially happy kids. I think bright shirts with words like 'brilliant!' or 'amazing'.  would be great. 'genius.' 'inspiration' 'well mannered.' (i know a lot of kinds that could use the well mannered shirt, maybe they'd get it through osmosis?)

Go for it!

If it was for a good cause, I would definately buy one!

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything and at the same time, are ones who never yawn or say a common place thing but burn, burn, burn, like yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars...
