Goodjoe is a “community-based t-shirt company with a passion for doing good.” Elevation Nation is an internet-based network with a mission to unite Americans “in the satisfaction that comes from a life-long commitment to worthy charities and social issues.” Now these two companies are partnering with Operation Gratitude for a fun, new contest to benefit our very patriotic cause. The contest — Design for a Greater Good — is open to creative people of all ages!
Are you up for the challenge? Here’s what you need to know:
The contest theme is “Patriotism”. A simple word…yet to those of us who love this country, its meaning is quite profound.
You have until September 2, 2011 to submit your t-shirt designs to the Goodjoe website. The top three designs will be selected by Operation Gratitude judges. Visitors to Goodjoe.com will have the opportunity to view and vote for their favorite from September 5 through September 11, 2011.
For Goodjoe co-founder Nathan Pham, a love of t-shirts and a desire to support worthy charities inspired him to create a place for artists to design “awesome shirts for cool causes.”
“Here at Goodjoe, we believe great organizations like Operation Gratitude can benefit from cool t-shirts,” Pham said, adding, “And it’s very fun!”
Goodjoe will generously donate 40% of profits from the winning t-shirt sales back to support the troops. Operation Gratitude founder Carolyn Blashek couldn’t be more pleased, and said, “Truly, this is a win-win-win deal — for the t-shirt designer, for Operation Gratitude, and for the troops!”
Carolyn credits Elevation Nation co-founder Josh Gottsegen with bringing Goodjoe and Operation Gratitude together. “We’re very thankful for Josh’s support,” she said. ”We’re excited about being a part of EN and working together more in the future.”
Gottsegen echoed those feelings. “All of us at Elevation Nation are very pleased with this initial program with Operation Gratitude and Goodjoe,” said Josh. “We look forward to many more innovative opportunities that our technology team will be bringing to the table.”
Have fun…and GOOD LUCK!
