Best Wearable Way to Give Back
Taylor Speed

Cincy Shirts is frequently releasing collaboration T-shirts with area businesses and nonprofits to help create wearable ways to give back. This past year, they released a shirt in conjunction with the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden to raise funds for the care of the animals affected by the massive wildfires in Australia. The shirts featured Fiona the hippo cuddling up with a koala bear and a kangaroo and the words “Support Our Friends Down Under,” all illustrated by artist Loren Long. Proceeds from the shirt sales went to benefit the Zoos Victoria’s Bushfire Emergency Wildfire Fund. Cincy Shirts also raised funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Cincinnati with a timely T-shirt featuring a duct-taped cheese coney on the chest, playing off of the duct-taped banana meme (an artist listed the price of a banana duct-taped to a wall during Art Basel in Miami last year at $120,000 and it went viral). The limited-edition piece of Queen City artwork was sold for $125 and $100 from each sale went directly to the local charity.
