WAR for Japan

Hey you guys!! Long time no post! Sorry about that, we’ve been busy getting some important internal affairs in order.

 

Either way I’m excited to let you guys know we are doing a fundraiser to raise funds to send to Red Cross Japan. We are having a T Shirt designing competition. The first place design will be printed in color and the second place design will be printed in black and white. We will give credit to the artist on the front of the shirt and the design will be on the back. We are donating 100% of the profit of the T Shirt sales to Red Cross in Japan.

If you know anyone who may be interested PLEASE pass it on.

Thanks!!!!!
