Crowdfunding with custom t-shirts
Crowdfunding has become a way of life on social media. We see the links all of the time on twitter and facebook. It’s a great way to raise funds to help someone out be it medical bills, start up money for a business, fundraising for a particular cause, etc. It’s a great way for the community to come together and rally around a cause.
Many crowdfunding campaigns are geared towards somber reasons. But they don’t have to be. We have customers who are no stranger’s to crowdfunding campaigns contact us about using a t-shirt to raise money. Each time someone has used crowdfunding with custom t-shirts they have raised 4 times more money than using other crowdfunding services. People like helping others out but when they can get a tangible item in return for their donation, more people tend to give and people tend to give more.

why is crowdfunding with custom t-shirts so successful
The biggest reason crowdfunding with custom t-shirts is so successful is because research shows more people give to a cause when they receive a tangible item in return for their donation. While the fund me websites of the world certainly have their place. The idea behind crowdfunding with a custom t-shirt is you are setting a higher minimum donation from people. On Fund me sites people can donate as little as $5, $10, $15, and we understand every little bit helps. But with a t-shirt you are setting your minimum donation at $15 at least with $20 being the average. You sell 200 t-shirts at $20 and have a cost of $6 per shirt. That’s a total of $4,000 with a profit/fundraising of $2,800. If you don’t have a t-shirt those 200 donations will be across the board and you won’t reach $2,800 nearly as quickly as you will offering a tangible item for sale.
By crowdfunding with custom t-shirts you are setting the lowest donation parameters higher. On popular sites if someone donates $10 the beneficiary of the campaign may see $7.00. If you sell a t-shirt for $20 and your cost is $6. The beneficiary is seeing $14 minimum with every single donation. There are no sliding percentages. It’s cut and dry. Here is the cost of the shirt to you. Here is what you are selling it for. The different between cost and sale is yours.
