Like Indie Rock? Like Cool T-Shirts?

…Like helping out charities? The the Yellow Bird Project might be worth checking out.

Who they are: A Montreal-based non-profit initiative that collaborates with musicians in designing t-shirts. The shirts are then printed and sold on the Yellow Bird Project website, and all the proceeds go to charity. The coolest part is that all the bands get to pick their own charity, so it’s really something meaningful to them.

Who they’ve worked with: Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, The Shins, Stars, Rilo Kiley, Au Revoir Simone, Wolf Parade, My Brightest Diamond, and others. My favorite shirt so far is the Au Revoir Simone one.

And here’s the scoop: Their latest t-shirt, coming out at the end of next week, was designed by The National. And we all know how much I love The National.

Can I get a pre-order on that shirt?

Anyway, go check ’em out, and buy some cool threads to support some cool charities!
