Many folks in the US right now are wondering, “How can our country separate families and put kids in these terrible conditions?”
They Might Be Giants want to help end this suffering. We have organized a t-shirt project to benefit RAICES, a leading organization in Texas helping separated families, detained families, unaccompanied minors, and others who are seeking asylum in the United States. ALL profits from this effort will go directly to RAICES.
UPDATE: kudos to all the TMBGers –– y’all have raised $25,000 since Monday! How far can we get?
This limited-edition t-shirt illustrates a memorable line from our song “Birdhouse in Your Soul.” Taken from an original woodcut created by Lindsay Riley, this shirt is printed in white discharge ink (for maximum smoothy softness) on a beautiful blue 100% cotton shirt for just $25 plus shipping. Pre-order it here. It is available in ALL sizes including women and kids. We will hold the pre-order window open until August 26th and then begin printing and shipping orders, so you can expect to receive your order after Labor Day.
For those of you with long memories, you'll remember this design was a one-time-only t-shirt offering a few years back. Let us be the first to note that we are breaking our own rule by creating another edition of this shirt –– it feels like trying to help out one of the few forces of good in this most troubling of times is more important.
We invite everyone to get a shirt and participate in this effort to end this terrible government policy. If you just want to help this essential cause, please consider a direct contribution to RAICES: https://www.raicestexas.org. They are good people.
